Love this place. Eaten here so many times and never had an issue. Food is cheap but great and always receive fast service. Only problem is trying to leave when the cold drinks keep coming. Awesome!

Want to do the meal Malian style? This is a great venue where you don't have to be worry about getting a Bamako Belly. Their beef steak is very popular.

We enjoyed eating at this little restaurant. I really like the brochettes. They are very friendly and helpful. It's my dad's favorite restaurant. The prices are very reasonable, too.
