    This was my first time at Amina and it didn’t disappoint! The peri peri wings were delish. I also enjoyed the Brussels. I loved the esthetics and decor.

    Visited the area for a graduation and had brunch here the next day. Awesome! Nice ambiance, great food (we loved everything minus the Red Velvet cake balls) and price was worth every penny. Can’t wait to come back and visit!

Staff were exceptional and provided recommendations, atmosphere was really cool and I couldn’t stop looking at all of the decor, cocktails were well-balanced, and food was divine!

    The smell, when you walked through the door, was terrible. Smelled like an old mildew mop. We had a wonderful waitress, very sweet and knowledgeable of the drinks(which were VERY GOOD). She made food suggestions and was very patient when we coolant decide. We had the oxtails, chicken basket, greens, mac and cheese, sticky wings, and deviled eggs. Our bill with drinks was $228.00, gratuity was 22%. It wasn't worth it to me, but we have no problem supporting black-owned businesses. My Sister and I could've just had a few drinks, the food was regular.

    Food was ok a little weird, food came out wrong, other food Got cold while we waited. They forgot about our dessert then threw it together at last min, you could tell based off the other dessert plates I watched come out earlier. Bartender didn’t know how to make my drink, I had to teach her. Nothing take off bill, no apology from manager or owner.

    We went for restaurant week. The drinks were really good! We ordered all of the courses at the same time and the appetizers (cheesesteak beignets) came out quickly and were really good. The entrees took unusually long to come out and the portion sizes were a let down. I was expecting more flavor wise but overall it was good.

    As soon as I walked into Amina the vibe was beautifully set. The service from the hostess was friendly and inviting. The food was superb and the signature drinks were amazing. I love Amina's Crown signature cocktail it was so refreshing with attention to detail. I'm all for a restaurant that when I walk in a feel like I'm in the exact right place. I will be going there again and I'm bringing friends and family. Great job Amina Philly!
