From the outside, the restaurant seems inconspicuous, and I will admit to having driven past it numerous times. But once inside, you enter a cavernous space which seems to be really huge but well, not so huge.
There are two choices of areas to eat within this place: the dinning little house which seems a comfortable place to have some quick coffee, and the outdoors where you can sit and just have anything ‘foody’ you might want to have. I usually start off with some juice.
This restaurant has a delicious range of chargrilled meats and fish, salads and a few others.
The kitchen is visible from some seating areas, and even before your food arrives, the mouth-watering aroma gets your taste buds flowing. The service is friendly and helpful, don’t be afraid to ask for help when selecting from the menu. They have a selection of juices, just ask and you’ll have it at your table in less than 5minutes.
The outdoors is more intimate than the little house, so if you fancy some privacy, there’s plenty of space outside.
The little house section is not huge, you don’t feel over-exposed but it is not so tiny that you are sitting on your neighbour’s lap either.
The most striking thing about this place is probably their contemporary African buffet. Well, perhaps the only thing actually.
Finally, Amagara Restaurant is not a fancy place for fine dining but if you’re dead hungry, their waitresses will sort you out in the shortest time possible.
Once in a while, if you happen to be around Colville Street and you’re hungry, just find yourself inside. You’ll walk out belly-full at a pocket change price.
