Giving this place a 5/5 stars wouldn?t be enough to describe my experience at Karibu. As you can see from the photo. From the warm atmosphere to the stellar customer service. When I walked in, I was greeted and asked what I wanted to eat, I was indecisive and hesitant given that it was my first time at Karibu. While speaking to the employee, they told me their best sellers as well as what goes well together. I got the Philly cheesesteak and WOW! What can I say, it was amazing. The way the cheese melts into the bun and the meat, the green peppers and onions cooked to perfection. Not to mention meat is halal! If you are in the mood for a feel good meal, for any occasion please stop by Karibu. You will not regret it :)
Great food! But it was very expensive $18 for this and a soda
Wow! We stopped in for some dinner that exceeded all expectations. The outdoor seating was super nice to have on a great summer night, and we loved everything we tried on the menu (which was almost everything)! Our favorites were the Safari Rolls, specifically the chicken one, which was amazingly fresh, flavorful, and unique. I would gladly return for some great Afro/Somalian food the next time I was in the area, and will encourage everyone to do the same!
Karibu has plenty to choose from in the areas of East African and Mediterranean cuisine. There are a couple of grocery aisles in addition to a restaurant/deli with seating. I ordered the Chooza chicken platter and the lamb gyro. I picked up some pounded yam in the grocery section while my food was being prepared. The chicken platter and gyro were both delicious! The gyro especially had soft pita and a healthy portion of lamb inside.
I had a good experience here. I stopped by cause I was in the area and this place was highly rated. The place was very clean and bright making for a nice lunch atmosphere. They have patio seating available as well and big windows to people watch or watch traffic while you eat. They do have a small grocery section but it was pretty bare. The lady who took my order was very friendly and had some nice recommendations for food. She was correct on what she told me to order I was not disappointed. If you are near the area and enjoy East African food definitely stop in and give them a try.
Great food, lovely decor.
I've been here when they first opened and it was amazing. Till this day it's still AMAZING. the main dish I get here is the nomads ari. This dish is a goat dish. The flavor is seasoned and cooked just right. The rice is aromatic and goes well with the goat meat. Their two sauces aren't that spicy so to the non spicy lovers this will be perfect for you. They also have one that's spicy, but you just gotta ask. This place haven't changed in quality of food since they opened. I'm glad their here located in East St Paul.
Not the best picture but the food was the best I've had in a while! Loved the spices and sauces. Friendly staff as well, will be back ?
