Samaki

I was in Detroit for a Show at the Fisher Theater. We got there early to get some dinner before the show, but was unable to find a place. We went into The St. Regis Hotel and the person at the desk told us that if we were looking for an excellent place to eat to try Baobab Fare on the corner. I was skeptical as I had never had East African food before. This place was amazing!! Just a small place but cute and full of people! I heard someone raving about the Samaki and said well thats what I'll have. And the dessert! It was to die for! If you have never been to this place, you should go. I will be back again!

Samaki

I absolutely loved the Samaki with the coconut rice and stewed beans. My one year old really loves the stewed beans so much. That's an added bonus if the baby loves the food. A beautiful vibe and wonderful nourishing food.

Samaki

The dish that reminded me of home. I would order this again and again and again. For Coconut lovers, try the Samaki with Coconut rice; you will thank me later. May the hands that cook the meal be blessed.

Samaki

This dish is flavorful. Very well seasoned and the coconut rice was a delicious buttery compliment to the dish. The corn salad is excellent. My preference to complete this meal is the peanut stewed spinach. Which has a nice nutty flavor.

Absolutely delicious! Everything is so flavorful. The beef was so tender and moist. Would love to have this everyday :)

All the food here is incredible. I can choose one dish over the other. It's always fresh, and full of flavor. I've been here many times and the food is always delicious! This is a gem in the city of Detroit. The owners are always there. They poured their heart into this place!

Mboga

Honestly- I cannot get enough of the mboga! It is so comforting & hearty in the winter (especially great for a vegetarian like myself) & I am trying to bring everyone I know here. :)

Mboga

The mboga was so good! I grew up with my best friend's Ugandan mother making a variation of this for us all the time as a kid, and this is the only thing I've had that brings me back to those days!

Stopped in on Sunday 12/12/21 on our way home. The meal was so delicious. Will be back again. I hope you liked the article that I left about my grandpa when he was a missionary in the 1940s in Burundi when he hunted down the man eating lion.
