C'était ma première expérience de cuisine africaine. Ce n'est pas traditionnel, c'est plutôt mis au goût du jour, nous a-t-on expliqué. J'ai découvert la viande de chèvre, qui est délicate et vraiment très bonne. Le service était très bon, sauf que la serveuse s'est montrée réticente à baisser le volume de la musique qui était envahissant. Il n'y avait qu'un seul autre couple qui terminait son repas. On l'a quand même baissé légèrement. Le décore est agréable et soigné. Bref, dans l'ensemble une heureuse expérience qui sort de l'ordinaire.

I don’t usually write reviews, but this place was a truly great find. Local ingredients, deep flavors, creative and authentic use of flavor ranges you can’t often get in North America from the wide flavor opportunities of sub-Saharan Africa. Refined, but also alive in flavor. And well presented and a sweet space and staff. Came back again with more people before I left Montreal and we all loved it.
