Modest Food Portions

The service was great, the waitress was very friendly. I was there with a friend, and we both agreed the portions are simply too modest. I was so hungry, I requested rice but they don't have on-hand and need to prepare it. It's a very light dinner, we ordered two sets of Sambrusa's to compensate for the modest portions.

I have tried them all, and I think this is the best. I have never had a bad meal, and everytime I bring someone new they love it. Try the veggie combo, and if you don't like collard greens, ask for cabbage as a substitute. I have ordered other combos and they have all been terrific. I wish this place was located downtown! It is true, however, that they could give larger portions.

Great value & very friendly

My group eats here when we're in the Columbia area -- we've tried every place that looks decent and this one ended up being our favorite so far. The flavors are delicate and really appealing. The decor is nothing really special, but there's enough space to feel like you can move around, and there's a good friendly vibe. At least to us, the portions are big -- we get full and get to take some home.

Eating with your hands is interesting and all, but the food here is so bland. On top of that, none of us ordered alcohol and it ended up being 20$ a person and we weren't even nearly full. This place is lucky it doesn't have any real competition in the columbia area.
