The service was fast and friendly, the restaurant was clean and the food was great! We ordered the Basil Chicken, Swiss and Mushroom Burger, and the Chicken Rigatoni. From the kids... More

As I understood from Planet-Africa site, the main branch is the one listed here in this address, and the other branches are franchises with contract to take the name for 10 years at a time...

Unless you are with children that you wish to entertain in a different environment and atmosphere and wish to feed them fast food type of menu .... if you are not in this situation then do not waste your time or money. The place is mediocre, offering mediocre food to put it mildly. By all means not recommended at all.
