    Delicious food, inexpensive plus it opens till late. Some dishes can be too spicy for the ordinary palate. It's 15-20 feet from our 4th floor apartment, so we plan to dine there often.

    Okay so I didn't know that lamb in a dark coconut sauce was a thing and that was a big gap in my life this place has fixed. So delicious. They default to coconut rice, entirely worth a visit.

    Mozambique cuisine is so good! I ate starter dinner and cake and of course beer from this country. I have been there around 7.30 PM and I was almost alone. After half hour restaurant was full :)

    Delicious African food😊 Ask for spicy souce, it gives a good kick to the dish. Very friendly stuff, need to wait a bit for food but worth it😊

    Unique mix of tastes from Mozambique and Portugal, with some flavours from India. Portions are huge and prices favorable. We had a little talk with the owner, who very good knows English.

    Love the familiar atmosphere and delicious food. Highly recommended. Sit down and you'll see a cast of characters from the neighborhood pass by and say hi to the owners and chat for a few minutes.

    Just great: everything. Try the frango! But the vegan food is also delicious.

    The lamb dish is amazing! A bit spicy but probably the best dish I’ve had in a long while. 5 stars!

    We had crab, coconut sauce, swordfish, mussels. A busy, busy little place hidden away and worth seeking out.

    Some nice traditional dishes, African with Portuguese ingredients. Try the shrimp rise ones!

    Sebastian is the best server and such a lovely person! However the food just needed a bit more of a kick. The chamussas need a tomato sauce and the lamb curry was too salty

    Outdoor seating. Exciting Mozambican dishes (spicy Basra lamb ribs). Also samosas

    The lamb falls apart as you touch it, that’s how tender it is. Falls apart, I say.

    Lamb chakuti is delicious !!! The makoufe is alright but too creamy. It pales in comparison to the chakuti

    Unfortunately disappointed by a place that has no interest and is not cheap for what it is. Don't understand the enthusiasm. You can get much better in Lisboa!

    Lunchtime you can find the place just by the smell of chicken roasting on the grill.

    Food was a bit bland. Poor service, ordered a second drink that never came even after reminding them about it but it showed up three times on the bill.

    ótima surpresa em Lisboa! Fica aberto até tarde, a comida é incrível e muito bem temperada (várias entradas e apenas uma opção de prato vegetariano, que vale a pena) e o atendimento é surpreendente.

    Franchement un service digne d'un bistrot parisien... (Désagréable) pour le reste (l'essentiel) c'est plutôt bon sans être génial... Les bananes en entrée sont une tuerie et les desserts à éviter

    Aos fins de semana os preços aumentam para uma média de 10€. Têm esplanada e wi fi. Paparis muito oleosos, chamuça vegetariana era muito boa, no geral bom mas com o preço um pouco puxado.
