I do not believe anyone would be disappointed with the pleasing décor of this restaurant, the soft appealing dining music, and the beautiful table settings. Of course this is the work of culinary art students and they do a terrific job. They are pleasant and know how to explain well the different items on the menu. Our food was spicy, but delicious. You have a choice of soup or salads, entrees, and a dessert. All for a very nominal price. You must make reservations and parking is on the street. Parking should not be a problem during the summer semester.

I have been to Sikia on 2 different occasions and going aging on friday. The food has alway been superb, cooked or prepared to perfection. The wait staff are very courteous, extremely delightful and most professional. The atmosphere is very classy, yet comfortable, you will not be in rush to leave. Finally the prices are most affordable beyond compare. I highly recommend this restaurant for a pleasant dining experience.

This restaurant offers cuisine inspired by Africa and the African diaspora, offered by the hardworking young people of Kennedy-King college's culinary program. The dining room is as chic as any you'll find downtown, and the menu offers a diverse sampling of flavors, many of them spicy. I recently enjoyed a hearty peanut soup, West African akara (black-eyed pea fritters with a spicy red pepper dip), jerk chicken with jollof rice, and a homey cornmeal pie, accompanied by spicy red tea. What a treat! One caution: it's a bit out of the way; you'll likely need a car.
