If you would like to try some good African food from different parts of Africa, I would recommend this restaurant. The lady is really nice and the restaurant nicely decorated. The food is delicious and very tasty.

We tried something a bit different from the norm and we were very impressed, lovely tasty food. The only downside, I was slightly expensive for what it was but don' let it put you off.

Being Nigerian biased at least on food, I was happy to find another place to add to the list as there aren't very many. The problem with most of the others I have been to is poor customer service (slow delivery, unavailable selections, poor atitude), inconsistency and expensive prices (or shall I say not good value) For what jollof cafe...

We tried the Kilamanjaro soup - warned several times by Naa about the heat of the chili's in the soup - and it was hot but also very nice. We ate also ground nut soup, fried chicken and... More

I came here while just passing, on a whim to see what it's like. In short, it's very good. Much as the name suggests it's a cafe rather than a restaurant, focussing on African and Caribbean food. The food was freshly made (didn't take long) and the service was friendly and efficient. The cafe itself was also spotlessly clean and... More

Our daughter first tried Jollof Café and recommended we should try it, we are glad she did. The food was outstanding. We let the owner choose our menu and we had three excellent courses. All the food is home cooked, not too spicy but full of flavour, the portions were generous and well presented. The the premises were spotless. The... More
