Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ever since I tried Africfood a few years back on the market, it's become my #1 go-to food stall there. I love the spinach and goat stew. The staff is also always super friendly. Highly recommend!

I came for lunch today for the first time in years and was so happy to see the same lady who served me before. The food was just as good as I rememberd and the server so friendly. I let her give me a surprise...and was not disappointed at all.More

At Africfood you'll find the best grub at Cambridge market: I get the large veggie mix every time and it never disappoints.

I was in Cambridge for work and some colleagues took me to the market square as there was quite a selection. Africfood caught my eye, I wasn't sure what to order so went with the goat and spinach with fried rice and plantain. I only...order the medium size at £7 (most stalls were priced similarly), I wish I'd gone large as it was absolutely delicious. The lady that served me was a delight and really made the ordering a pleasant chat. If I'm ever back in Cambridge for work I'll be heading here again. Please go and give it a try. Wonderful.More

We discovered the gem that is Africfood only a year and a half ago, and have been going regularly since! We have tried most of the menu and everything has been absolutely delicious. From the perfectly cooked ‘melts in your mouth’ goat to the spicy...jollof rice. Each of the preparations have blown our minds away and instantly become our favourite comfort foods.More

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.
