The milk shakes here made from fresh bananas are the best, I have to go to Banjul regularly and this place is fast and clean. A great place to stop and refresh

This small restaurant is good place in Gambia to have lunch or a simple diner. The fare is mainly Libanese with falafel and kebabs, as well as several international food. The prices are low, you can sit and the atmosphere is of a cosy snack bar. The food was very good.
