What to expect
We had the best time at Chef Afia’s for my husband’s birthday. The food was delicious, those that were not vegan thoroughly enjoyed the food and did not miss the meat. We enjoyed learning about different places in Africa and can’t wait to do this again!
Outstanding food, company and experience! My husband and I loved every minute of it!
This was amazing!!! The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was great! Our hostess was charming and interesting and gave us a great view of African food and culture. She was warm and friendly, and the company was excellent. I highly recommend this experience.
Eveything with Chef Afia was a delight. The three dishes, from Morrocco, Ethiopia, and Egypt were flavorful and authentic, Afia did a great job of explaining the ingredients and special spices, the timing of the dishes was perfect, and it was fun getting to know our fellow diners. 10/10 recommend.
