Go here. The chicken is great. The beer is cold. You will most likely have to cross the city to get to Bandal, which is a riot and worth the trip. Like the city itself, you can only wonder how it manages to exceed its reputation in every respect. I intend to come back on a weekend, because like so much of K, CMC is set up for a party.

I ve never eaten a as delicious grilled chicken like as the one of mama colonel in the world . Also fried bananas and fries are very good. The restaurant is not easy to reach because is not in the city centre but You must try if in kinshasa.

A place where I would not go without locals. Surprisingly good grilled chicken. Very clean place and good nice service. We went 5 times for lunch in a week and was always excellent.

Offers chicken and fish prepared Congolese style as well as traditional side dishes. Outdoor and indoor seating, though the outdoor is a better experience. Great service. Good for groups and lunch or dinner. Live music many nights of the variety that plays table-side guitar/drums/singing. Great cultural dining experience that isn't touristy.

The first thing to know is that there 2 Maman Colonels (we went to Maman colonel 1) the place is a bit tricky and located in a very busy area full of bars. Iyvwas highly recommended by a local who told us this is THE place for chicken, indeed the chicken was great and much cheaper than the usual expat restaurants, would definitely go back. Take cash, we were told credit card payments don't always work
