On days when I'm in town near mid day I stop by the Africfood stall and get their veggie mix for lunch. Comes with rice & sauce. There's rarely a queue, the food is tasty and filling, and it is always served with a big...smile! Recommended. Yes it comes in a plastic tub, but this tub, once washed, is useful as a food storage box.More

We visited the stall on the Market. Really tasty food, with lots of spice and flavour. I had the veggie ,ix, with plantain, beans, jollof rice and sauce and it was great. The woman cooking and serving the food was really friendly. Highly recommend!

Just visiting on my own and came across this stall on the market place. The smell was amazing. I had the spicy goat which tasted beautiful. I spent 7 months living in Africa, and have not yet found an African dish that tasted authentic…. Until...now. The dish I had was soo good, I went back for a second portion. The lady that served me was also so nice and was a pleasure to be served her food. She deserves a restaurant and hope it happens for her. Thank you for the great food.More

We visited the market place stall. The food was amazing, very flavourful, loved the spice 🌶 the Guineas malt soft drink was not to our taste though.

This is wonderful, warming and heart-warming food. The spicy goat is my favourite, but the other dishes are also interesting - e.g. goat curry with melon seed. All served with jolly rice and friend plantains. Decently priced, and to find tender goat is such a...rare pleasure int he UK. A wonderful addition to the cosmopolitanism of the Cambridge food-market scene.More

Absolutely delish. Goat curry and jolloff rice. Meat was tender and curry flavoursome. Generous portion size. Filling without being heavy.

One of the best in Cambridge Market. The fried plantain is the highlight though the jollof rice isn't far behind. If you're looking big, spicy flavours and decent portion sizes this will hit the spot.

Delicious food. I would rate higher but something that really bothered me was the fact that my goat stew came out of a plastic container. If all the stew is individually packaged it just seem rather wasteful. Terrible for the environment

I would not have answered if anyone that actually knew the correct answer already had. :) I suspect that the dining style is casual and that it is first-come, first serve.
