We drove up from Milwaukee on a Wednesday night to try the place out. Although the food was tasty and different, the place was so cold I needed my coat. We were the only ones in the restaurant the entire time we ate and yet it was like we were annoying the owner/manager by just being there. He encouraged us several times to come back but he didn't give us a good reason to. When we asked questions about the food we were unfamiliar with, he wouldn't help explain the flavors. He wouldn't make recommendations for rice/meat/sauce combinations, I would not make the drive back even though I liked the food.

You call and all you get in their voice mail or it says mailbox full. The first time I went there it was supposed to be open and they were closed and it was an hour round trip from my house. The fish and shrimp were both fishy tasting. The rice and sauce were good. The decor needs help, a few African pieces throw haphazardly around doesn't cut it, it could look really cool in there. The server was really nice, an older black gentleman.

Charging an automatic 18% gratuity for a carry-out order, particularly when that is not stated on the Groupon, is outrageous. Additionally, I was told when I called it would be better to place my order on-line due to how busy they were. That was evidenced by how long it took me to get an answer on the phone. I was told by two other customers waiting there that I was actually lucky someone answered the phone, as that is rare. Ordering on-line was painful, as the website is not great. The order was also not ready when I arrived, but I had to wait another 10 min. Typically, I actually tip more than 18% when dining in, but would never pay more than a couple bucks for carry-out. I would not dine there due to the dingy atmosphere. Food is good, but the customer service was so poor, my family and I will not be giving them any more business.

We did take out. Food was ready on time, but two items were missing (which we didn't discover till we got home). Portions were small, so price for what we got was high. Restaurant is in the basement of another establishment--not a place you'd go for a nice evening out. Food was quite oily, but we did like the Calalu and the Pili-pili stews.

From Our Editors

Attentive diners will notice a few things missing from Taste of Africa’s meals—wheat, barley, and rye. The naturally gluten-free entrees also eschew dairy products, relying instead on tomato sauce or egg to thicken their sauces and stews. One such specialty stew, red red, blends fried plantains and baked beans; another mild option, pili-pili, combines cabbage, meat, and red beans to create an African-style chili. Traditional African spices ignite other meals, from plates of grilled goat to tilapia fillets. Not to be outdone, vegetarian dishes such as saffron or coconut rice soak up swells of the eatery’s signature sauces, which are flavored with unsweetened peanut butter or egusi spice. Diners can also take home glass jars of these sauces to share with whatever friends they have left after the glue stick incident.

In addition to the authentically prepared cuisine on the menu, Taste of Africa sells gifts handmade by African artisans. Every $15 spent on the collection of clothing, jewelry, and raw shea butter provides a meal for a child in a Congolese or Senegalese orphanage.
