Superb food, large servings. Exceptionally friendly service. So glad we went there. Had lamb and chicken with basmati rice. Excellent samosa with homemade sauces. And BANANAS!

Have dined here twice. First experience was amazing. Both appetizer(beef sambusa) & goat stew was amazing. Goat meat was perfectly cooked & tender. On my 2nd visit got the lamb stew & it was pretty disappointing. The meat in the lamb shank was not cooked evenly so some portions were tough while others were perfectly tender. Mentioned about the issue while I went to the pay at the counter. The guy only apologized for the issue & charged me the full price for the meal. Not sure I will be back.

Great place!! We knew that there was a large Somali population in Minneapolis, and we were visiting for the weekend, so we googled to find out which Somali restaurant was highly rated. This did not disappoint! We had the tilapia plate, the goat plate, and beef and chicken sambusas. The tilapia was absolutely incredible and our favorite of the meal. Portions are large. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. We had no idea what to order, and our server gave us great insights and advice. When we are back in Minneapolis, we will definitely go back to Mama Safia's

I thought I ordered beef Sambusa; apparently I ordered onion. Ridiculous! The man at the register was nice though and the place is clean. That earned a star. I thought I would return for dinner. I'll never be back. After picking some onions out, I was left with bread.

Brightly lit, with simple decor and colourful walls. The sambusas were absolutely delicious-- packed with meat and spice and flavour. Next time I'm back I'll definitely be getting more. Pricewise most of the entrées are only a few dollars more than getting a combo meal at some place like McDonald's, but it's so much better and a really filling amount.

This place is so beautiful, clean and welcoming! It was my first time here and I was overwhelmed with warm greetings and smiling. The customer service is so fabulous and the lady I found was so nice friendly. She explained every dishes on menu ingredients and spices, she graced me with multiple choices to choose from. The juices and made taste different juice from, watermelon juice, Correa” vito juice and mango juice. I loved the Vito juice it’s commonly famous in East African. The food was delicious and I highly recommend you to try out this wonderful and Best restaurant in Minneapolis. I enjoyed myself and I will be coming often. Thanks for checking out

I don’t usually have an appetite for some African foods but this place changed me! Even just walking in I thought “oh this looks so, GOOD!” The staff were very friendly and polite. All menu options are Delicious no matter what you get. I can’t recommend this place enough!
