We enjoyed the five course tasting meal. Each course was bursting with complex flavors, yet frsh and healthy. This restaurant is right across fro. A major metro T stop and well worth a visit.
We met friends here for dinner & had an excellent experience!! This was the best meal I'd had in a while--incredible flavors & variety, and very reasonably priced. Every dish we ordered was PHENOMENAL, and there are lots of vegetarian options (as well as non-vegetarian options). The service was great & the atmosphere is wonderful. Only slightly off-putting thing is that this is a "foodie" restaurant plopped into the middle of the Bayview & I wish that the restaurant owners would make some effort to bring the Bayview community in--either through employment or special neighborhood deals or something. Still...I highly recommend this restaurant & will definitely be back.
I had a great dinner at Radio Africa. The food was a unique combination of flavors and everything I had was delicious. The ambiance was ok and could use some improvements. I did enjoy the live guitar playing, but I felt the dining area was a bit too open and exposed to Third street activity. I would come back to try a different menu.
I took my daughter to this hidden gem - we ordered the tasting menu (not listed, but they had offered one on a previous visit). Every bite of every dish was delicious, unique and beautifully plated. This restaurant is a treasure! The service was warm and friendly without being intrusive (I can't stand wait staff who seem determined to become your new best friend). Each course came right as we were ready (it's a small place, seats maybe 50, but it's quite spacious, and they keep an eagle eye out for the needs of each customer). I have lived and dined in both Europe and Asia, and in New York City. I eat out a lot and have very eclectic tastes, and I have to say that Radio Africa Kitchen is one of my favorite restaurants on the planet.
This off the beaten path restaurant seems very out of place in the Bayview. The food was not quite as impressive on this second visit as I remembered it being from my first visit. The flavors in the meat dishes were unique and well balanced, though the meat was not as tender as it could have been. The fish, barramundi, was nice and light but could have benefited from a little more character. The trout and crab appetizer didn't taste particularly fresh and was overwhelmed by the flavor of smoked trout. Also the bread it was served with was passable. Very limited beer and wine list. Service was friendly, helpful and accommodating.
Great find! Very tasty dishes with flavorful greens. I would definitely come back.
The appetizers are incredible. Well thought out, generous, attractive and tasty. There is an otion that includes all the nights appetizers, I may shoot for that next time.
I have had the pleasure to dine at Radio Africa 5 times this year and it is always an amazing culinary experience!
The chef has done a great job using different spices and fresh foods. The combinations were interesting and they worked well. The only negative side to the restaurant was the area in which it was located. Not the best part of town but we had no problems. It is worth it for the food.
We've been here many times and we keep going back because the food and entire dining experience is so great. Several reviews mentioned service issues, which is puzzling because this has never been a problem for us. The addition of live music on Thursday nights was a nice treat: not too loud. As for food: as many times as we've had it, the edamame hummus appetizer is always wonderful. The short rib tagine on the summer menu is great.
