It has the best food in a very non-descript setting. The restaurant is not fancy, nor does it have outside eating space, however if you are looking for delicious calamari and fresh vegetarian dishes, this is the place for you.

AMAZING RESTAURANT located in upper Harlem. They offer live entertainment nightly but the food is what I find outstanding. The cuisine is a fusion of West African and French food. I would suggest to try their Chicken Yassa or their Lamb dish. I have become a frequent customer and pretty much tried everything on the menu. I have never been disappointed. The management is very nice as well and they have a great bar and wine menu. Highly recommend this new gem.
