Great atmosphere, feels a like a 1950s ballroom in Kinshasa. Very fresh ingredients, generous portions, extremely well cooked. If that wasn't enough, it's also cheap and friendly. Best value for money in Brussels for sure!

Good authentic African food like banana plantains, delicious chicken with peanut sauce, etc, there is a special event involving dancing on Friday nights with good African music. And the staff are very friendly.

Warm staff and home made food. Great selection of beers and delicate flavours from central Africa. Highly recommended for a funky night in Brussels. Also excellent for remote working, sipping fresh mint tea and getting some work done. Thumbs up!
