Great new place
I may have been the first to dine here. Excellent lunch. Fish over a sauce and corn. Excellent seasoning. Ceasar salad to start. Will be back. You can't see it from the road, but worth finding.

Excellent chef, excellent sauce
Well worth your time to check this place out. I was surprised that the chef came out inquiring about our dinner but he was very pleasant to talk to. Lovely waitress. Try the plantains with matilde(sp?) sauce.

Nice surprise in East Cobb
Great food! Great surprise so close to home in East Cobb. Plantains were the best I've had. Seafood dishes were all delicious. Loved having the chef come out and personally deliver food and check on us. You can tell he takes great care with his food and wants customers to appreciate the flavors and background of the dish. Menu will continue to grow. I wish the best for this new addition to Cobb. We need more restaurants like this with these unique flavors.... I know we will be back!

Hidden local gem
We ordered the buffalo shrimp appetizer and some wine. The wine selection is very limited. While waiting for appetizer and looking over menu we were each treated to a complimentary plate of fried plantains drizzled with balsamic. Delicious!
We had the angus burger with mashed potatoes and the shrimp and grits. The burger was delicious, and the garlic potatoes were wonderful. The shrimp and grits was quite good.
The buffalo shrimp were large and had a nice texture, not too spicy.
Our child was treated to a plate of mashed potatoes in addition to the plantains.
We hope this place makes it! There were only 3 tables dining including ours on a Saturday night, and based on our meals, the place should be packed!

This place is absolutely incredible. The food is fresh, perfectly cooked, and spiced to perfection. The service was great, with the chef himself visiting our table and making sure everything was prepared to our liking. They start you out with complimentary fried plantains that are by far the best fried plantains I have ever eaten. My wife, who has never liked fried plantains, ate every bite of her serving. Our entrees were spectacular. The use of spices could not be any more perfect. Perfect strangers from other tables were raving to each other about how good it was. You know food is amazing when people who don't know each other come together over it. Try this place! You will not be sorry! Try the Far West Africa dish! Amazing!

Great idea to try someplace new
My wife and I were looking for someplace new rather than the same old restaurants around the Sandy Plains / Shallowford Rd area and what a pleasant gem Sun Dried is. We went in knowing nothing about this place but have not stopped raving about it to our friends. The chef started us off with some sweet fried plantains and then we had the spicy / bacon plantains for an appetizer. I don't think I have ever eaten plantains before but both dishes were amazing. My wife's steak was cooked perfectly and had great seasonings on it while the fish in the Far West Africa was amazing. The wait staff was friendly and attentive and the chef even came out to make sure everything was to our liking. Could not have asked for a better experience!

Taste Bud alert- Flavor explosion!
We went out to dinner once and returned for a birthday celebration. At my BD we had 4 grand kids (9 mo -11 yr), 3 parents. Everyone raved about the food and ate every bit of it. The hands on chef and staff created a relaxed atmosphere so everyone was completely comfortable. The fried plantain over collard greens drew some questioning looks, but even the 9 mo baby gobbled it up. The buffalo shrimp and calamari were fantastic. Two of the granddaughters enjoyed the ribs, the other the steak and truffle fries. Maybe the best dish on the menu was the Far West African fish that uses an African blackening spice. The chef finished off the meal with a key lime a la mode that was delish!
We plan on making Sun Dried a regular dinning experience.

Super food hidden away!
Great restaurant! We stopped in based off the other reviews on OT and we weren't disappointed. The chefs came out and introduced themselves and told us about the menu and gave us a free appetizer tasting. Great start! The food is a unique offering with African influences. I had the African gown with a nicely seasoned whitefish, crawfish and corn. Absolutely delicious! Although we didn't have the key lime pie, the table next to us raved about it. Wonderful meal. We will return!

The restaurant just received
The restaurant just received its liquor license and did not have a full bar but the food was outstanding if you're willing to try foods from around the world hopefully they can make this a go because the restaurant is in a bad location can't be seen from the road.

Quality Food and Wonderful Service
The food was outstanding and the ambience very good. A great location for a date night especially if you want to impress your date with food prepared by a chef. The serving team brought a sample appetizer that was a touch of class.
