Does it get any better...delicious food prepared by one chef (with a super smile), who waits on you, and is welcoming in every manner? It felt like we were in his home, as 20 feet away, he meticulously prepared every plate and served everyone. Not...More

So narrow a frontage you could easily walk by, but don't! Great variety so will have to return many times to adequately sample. One fish dish (Thiebou Djeun) and one vegetarian (Mafe) were both outstanding as were the unique beverages. Friendly and helpful chef/server.

This very narrow restaurant with a total of about 5 tables (seating 2-3 people each) serves fresh, authentic Senegalese food. The menu had so many appealing options that it was hard to decide on just one dish to order. We went with the veggie yassa...More

Take an hour and feel transported to Senegal right in Columbia City neighborhood. The place is tiny, but friendly. The good aromas are different, the food looks tasty but not like the usual lunch. I had the Senegalese national dish, fried fish in tomato sauce...More
