My wife and I had an great dinner at African Feeling. We were having trouble working out what to order and finally decided to go with Banquet 2, so that we'd be able to sample a wide range of dishes. We were assured by our friendly waiter that the portion sizes were smaller than the standard meals (which must have... More

We tried African Feeling with a Groupon voucher and we've eaten there and ordered home delivery several times since. We were hooked when we were asked if we wanted our meal "Mild, Medium, Hot or African Hot?" Always friendly service, REALLY tasty, and a nice change from the usual Thai/Indian/Pizza/Pub options.

In the quieter side of king street Newtown you will find a taste of Africa. There is a large choice of delicious food and generous portions. Well worth it.

Not great and too expensive. Quality wasn't great, very runny and unusual taste. Too expensive. African cusiine itself is beeter than the restauarant here in Syadney.

A group of 20 friends dined here on November 12th 2015. We had selected the three course banquet which on the look of it seemed a good choice. We each got three portion of entrees each. Still not sure why one of the entrees appeared to be a donut ball. The entrees had an Indian influence actually if you look... More

I had dinner here a couple of weeks ago with my partner and some relatives visiting from interatate. We all enjoyed our food. Somebody on our table accidentally ordered a beef dish that had a similar description to the vegetarian dish they meant to order. The restaurant were good enough to replace the dish and not charge us for the... More

We dined here a week ago with 6 friends. The waitress was simply amazing, knew the menu extremely well and had the best sense of humour! We had the $45.00 banquet which was great value for the money and included a good range of the menu - a must for first timers. We were able to swap dishes on Banquet... More
