Delicious African Experience

I was visiting San Fran recently, and wanted to check out an authentic African restaurant in the city. I came across menu pages, and found Bissap Baobab (a restaurant of Senegalese cuisine in the Mission district). I took the subway over from my hotel on a Thursday evening early last month (April 2007) and was greeted by a cool and relaxed atmosphere with a very personable host. I decided to order my food to go an... view more

Fun Dining Experience

This is a hidden gem. Fantastic food, interesting drinks, relaxed atmospher - all in all a great evening. The lamb dishes are out of this world, especially JOALIENNE -(Senegalese Paella). This dish made my mouth very happy. The PASTELLES appetizers were a treat as well. I would recommend everyone try this place.

Inconsistent service

I adore the drinks at this place but I've had a couple of bad experiences here with the service. However, I liked the lanb stew so much that I'm going to give it another shot and chalk it up to a couple of off nights....

good unique food

You have to read these reviews carefully. This is a smallish restaurant. If you come with a party of 8 on a Saturday night, you aren't going to have a good experience. It's also a scene later on and can get very crowded. Go early or on a week night and you will have great food and good service. The fried plantains were amazing and I loved my seafood entree. The drinks were tasty, but small and I thought a litt... view more

Delicious food and drinks, cool and fun atmosphere

We just tried out Bissap Baobab last night and it was very yummy! There was absolutely no wait, the servers were very friendly and the food was delicious! Also, the food came out from the kitchen very quickly. Try the chicken mafe and the chocolate souffle--very recommended. And the ginger hibiscus beverage is amazingly original and tasty. Also, the prices are very reasonable according to city standards. The ... view more

Waste of time for San Francisco

I lived in the city for years, and have been to many of restaurants, including cheap and expensive. I thought it would be great to go to a different style of restaurant, and my friend loves going there, so we went for his birthday. We waited almost 2 hours for a table. It was crowded, shoulder to shoulder. We must have been told 20 times our table was ready. They didn't seat us in the beginning because a few peo... view more

Get there early on weekends

This is one of my favorite restaurants and everyone that I take here loves it! The food is great and the service is on point. You must have the chocolate soulffle for desert no matter what. The infused rums are out of this world. I don't think they take reservations and I don't feel you should dine with a large group. This restaurant is somewhat compact. I've only had bad service once out of the twenty or so times th... view more

OK, but not recommended (don't believe the hype)

Had a few problems with this place:\r 1. Tried to make a reservation for a large party (12) and had to call *several* times before someone finally bothered to call me back to confirm.\r 2. When most of our party had arrived, they still refused to seat us (even though the restaurant was mostly empty because it was a Sunday night)! I can understand not seating us when the restaurant is full, but when it's only 50%... view more

Interesting and unique dishes

The second time I've been here was as good as the first. We went on a Sunday night and seating and service was not a problem. Not as popular as next door's Cha Cha Cha's but I'd much prefer this place anyway over trendy people getting sloshed downing margeritas. We ordered plantains and got them- real plantains, not bananas like some places give you (because some don't really know what plantains are!), fried perfectl... view more

Yummy and fun

I've never had Senegalese food before, but this place was really yummy. The drinks were also fun (I think we had a pitcher each of ginger margarita and a hibiscus one). It's a good place to go with friends since it's pretty chill and low-key, but also fun/different. I had the paella (with seafood and lamb)--interesting combo but yummy!
