Revisited Babanusa after several years. African restaurant on popular Prospect Rd, but whilst the food was still tasty, well presented and well priced, less authentic African dishes populated the menu. We had a table of 12, and all commented favourably on the food. BYO is...More

Food was tasteless . Even a beef dish described as spicy beef stew just tasted like a gravy. There are much better African restaurants around. Dishes were not as described on the menu and overall just not good food. Staff were bad as well.

Be transported to Africa with a Sudanese feast at Babanusa! If you have never tried African food before, you are missing out! It might not be the typical meal you would head out for with friends, but don't write it off until you try it!...More

This is our second visit to Bananusa in the last year and it did not fail to meet everything we wanted in a meal. They have recently renovated (in the last 4 weeks in fact) and it's looking great. There is an outside dining area...More

Three of us (one vego, two carnivores) came to Babanusa for dinner. It was tucked away (yes, this is possible even on a main road like Prospect Road), quirky, and splendid. I gather it's been there for years, but it was new to me, despite...More

Was interested to try Sudanese food- so went here. We weren't sure about the wine list so took a couple of bottles for BYO- which were accepted without demur- they even produced ice-cold champagne glasses and an ice bucket for the bubbly we brought. I...More
