Seattle Weekly's Description

Safari owner and Kenyan native Jane Kagira serves up the staples of her home nation for fellow countrymen in search of a nostalgic bite, while creating an inviting and un-intimidating venue for Seattleites in search of a new culinary adventure. The menu is designed as a bit of choose-your-own-adventure, with each entrée coming with a choice of mapunje (starch) and samba (vegetable). Swahili phrases pepper the menu, always accompanied by an English translation and brief explanation in plain language. There's little of the mystery or cross-cultural difficulty that can often occur when dining at a restaurant with whose cuisine you're unfamiliar. Be sure to try the pan-fried goat.
