Home-style African dishes from across the continent and a great soundtrack of African music are the draws at this festive little bar-restaurant. The menu covers the range from simple kebabs, pilafs and stews to more exotic items like ostrich steak, fried crocodile and kangaroo.

Some of our favorites were the excellent lentil salad, fried cauliflower, and Tunisian-style brik, a deep-fried flaky pastry filled with egg, onions and tuna. And our Ethiopian doro wat (chicken stew) packed a spicy punch.

Drinks include cocktails and inexpensive wines as well as African and Japanese beers. Budget around Y4000 for food and drink at dinnertime. If you drop by early in the evening, there's a special happy-hour menu of Y500 food and drinks served until 7:30pm.
