Mama Ashanti was the first restaurant to bring the authentic African dishes to Kenya. And true to its flavors, Nairobians have come to love this joint as it serves the best of West African tastes. Nestled in Muthangari, Nairobi, Mama Ashanti has brought the much-hyped West African dining experience in style. Ashanti is a tribe from Ghana in West Africa which birthed the founder of Mama Ashanti Uganda, Akuamoah Boateng. The Ashanti tribe is associated with female strength.
