YELP reviews

Fried Tilapia

Beef Samosa

"We're interested in East African food. Found this place where the food is very good. Of course it takes long to prepare the fried tilapia, pilau, chicken and vegetables. Service is slow like in the home country. But the atmosphere makes up for the wait with interesting characters who speak in tongues familiar to our ears. If you can make time it's a good journey to Safari restaurant."

"Really appreciated that the food was all super rich but not at all oily; its so nice to enjoy a fun meal out without the tummy ache* Affordable too! Would absolutely return for more :)"
