Great food, large portions, didn't have room for desert. Very different in a good way to 'normal' restaurants. Food is ordered in advance when booking a table, I can recommend the African Banquet it was excellent. Service was also very good, the proprietor seemed to genuinely care about providing a pleasant dining experience. The restaurant is now located in the... More

Having eaten at The African Experiance in Westgate st and thoroughly enjoyed it, I was disappointed to hear that it had closed. I then heard that they had reopened 2 nights a week at Gloucester Conservative Club. I went in on saturday evening and enjoyed the same high quality food that they are renowned for.

Great food and experience! It was lovely to have had my food chosen in advance (by my husband) and so to have a fabulous surprise at each course. Not too spicy and lovely plantain. The hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly.

We went for my birthday and we're very impressed with the range of food on offer. I would recommend going for the banquet option if you're not familiar with the cuisine as you get a taste of everything.
