We had been here before and decided to eat here again. We had the chicken and fish domoda and both dishes were really good. Dessert was a little disappointing, puff pastry with ice was cookie crumbs with ice?

The place is always busy. Service good, with friendly staff and good food. The owner is always there to greet you at some point in the evening.

The staff are very friendly and welcoming, particularly the owner of the restaurant, and the food is absolutely delicious! We stumbled upon the restaurant by accident and glad we did, the food really was to die for. We returned a few nights later for another meal and enjoyed being serenaded by some local singers while we ate!

This place was packed every night, service good. Food just average I had the ginger veg curry ok but nothing special. My husband had a chicken dish which again was just ok, if you sit at the front you get hassle from street sellers.

Good variety of dishes, but limited choice of fish ones. There are two restaurants - the one in the Senegambia strip was always full and lively, whilst the smaller one in the Djembe strip was quieter but still had a great vibe

We had the best domoda of the holiday, head and shoulders above any other restaurants we tried. The prawn dish I had was also excellent. Service was very prompt and attentive. We will be back

Several dishes available, european and also african meals. Fair prices for the senegambia strip +/- 8-12 euro for a main dish and some beers.
