    Outstanding

    The fish at Kilimanjaro is absolutely OUTSTANDING...and when I say outstanding I mean delicious, meaty, fresh and well prepared. I never imagined keeping the head on my whole fish ....but now I do. I have only had the grilled fish and as of this date see no reason to try anything else. The best bargain I have ever enjoyed. Loved the graciousness of the service which has been consistent the three times I have been back. I look forward to my return.

    Good value

    Well for starters I am from Senegal, so the quality of their food could hardly impress me. I remember when I first went there with a friend of mine from work, jokingly saying that if my mom came to open a restaurant in Philly they would have to shut down or move out of town. However after their renovation, I had the pleasant surprise of finding they had kicked their cooking up a notch as well as the look of the place. Now when it comes to service, well it is not going to be up to par with Le Bec Fin if that's what you are used to. You will have to wait a bit longer, people do come in and out and customers might be having conversations with their outer voice (loud) but really that is just a taste of a really african atmosphere. It used to be to informal for my taste but they have taken broad steps forward if you ask me and you will get get good authentic food at great prices.

    Big surprise

    What a shock. Id heard good things so I was excited to try out this African restaurant...BIG mistake. I’ve been to Africa & like this food, Kilimandjaro is a very poor representation. We ordered a juice drink which was way too sweet & I could only drink 1 sip. We specifically made sure there was sauce w/ the plantains appetizer, but our server forgot to bring it & I had to walk up & ask her for the sauce--- which when it came was so spicy you couldn’t enjoy it with plantains. I ordered some kind of lamb wrap & my boyfriend ordered a grilled chicken platter. My boyfriend & I sitting across from each other & leaning in couldn't hear each other because the customers laughing & talking to the owners were quite literally yelling. On top of that, the TV was blaring some American dance show, very loudly, ruining any kind of African atmosphere they attempted to create. We became so uncomfortable with the noise that we asked to take it to go, for which I had to wait at the counter for 3-4 minutes before the owner got up from her seat where she saw me standing there & moseyed over to ask what I needed. My boyfriend’s side of french fries were fine. My side of ‘steamed vegetables’ were quite literally a warmed up bowl of the cheap frozen vegetable mix you by from the supermarket. I hoped at least I could eat my lamb wrap for lunch the next day. I took 2 bites--to make sure I wasn’t tasting it wrong. It tasted just like the-way-a-sheep smells, I had to wash my mouth out with water & chew gum just to keep the aftertaste from making me nauseous at work. My boyfriend’s chicken was similarly very unappetizing. Worse still, it was supposed to be a surprise dinner for my boyfriend, well turns out we were both surprised and went to bed mad at each other.
