Restaurant review - Osarika African Caribbean Restaurant & Cafe

If you are in the mood to try something different I can highly recommend a visit to the Osarika African Caribbean Restaurant & Cafe here in Reading.

The staff there are very friendly and you can tell that they care about you as well as the food they serve. They are as far removed you can be from the normal surly and dis-interested staff that you find in any of the chain restaurants around the Oracle for example. I have (so far) very little knowledge about what is what when it comes to African and/or Caribbean cuisine but I've been made to feel welcome here and the advice I've been given have been spot on.

The food you are being served is freshly made and tastes awesome. You can tell that lots of love and care goes into each dish that they make. All ingredients are fresh. For example, each part of salads that are served on your plate is nice and crisp, no three day old cucumber slices here. The portions are very generous without being too big. You leave the restaurant pleasantly full, already planning what you will eat next time you go.

One tip: Try the goat curry!

They are open for lunch as well as dinner. During lunch you can choose between eating in or taking away your meal. You can rent the entire restaurant for a bigger meal or after what I can understand there's also the offering of off-site catering if you would like that.

The restaurant is located on 91 - 93 Kings Road (click for Google map) here in Reading. They do have a website, but last time I tried to reach it there was a problem.

For more info and/or reservations call them on: 0118-956 9970.

Mikey's advice: Go there now, and bring your friends!

(I'll bring my camera next time and update this post with some photos of the restaurant)
