My husband and I have eaten here twice. We live in Richmond. The first time we ate here we traveled from Richmond for a date night in DC December 2014. I Googled African food and this place showed up in my results and I read the reviews. A man named Sumah assisted us as we were confused on what to get. He offered us to sample the menu and said that all of them were good. We laughed and I thought to myself he is very confident. We agreed to the sampling he brought out a plate with a ton of samples of all the different sauces. We ate the tomatoe, potato leaf, cassava leaf, peanut and the spinach sauces. He was right All of them were delicious. We ordered the jollof rice, tomato sauce, peanut sauce, and cassava leaves with fish. We loved every bite. I had been craving it since then and I just went back this Sunday January 4th 2015. I ordered a medium peanut sauce and another large peanut, tomato and cassava with fish to go. So I could enjoy it at home in Richmond. Go in and try it you won't be disappointed and Sumah is very friendly.

Food is awesome! After my boy moved away, I had to find a place that cooked as good as my boy's wife and Sumah's was the answer to my prayers.

I love the home cooked african dishes at Sumah's. The food is outstanding & it reminds you of grandma's home cooking. When I don't cook this is the only place that satisfy me & my taste buds from eating out in the Washington DC NW area. Make sure to check it out. Ask to sample!!! You will love it 1 of the best African Restaurants Love!!!

We drove up to D.C. today for a lunch date and was looking for an Ethiopian restaurant but then came across this West African Restaurant. The ginger beer was amazing! It definitely soothed the pallette after trying all the amazing samples on the sample platter (not on the menu). We decided on Cassava with beef (that you easily cut with a plastic knife) and the peanut butter with fish! Wow!! Don't let the atmosphere fool you...we will be back again and again!!!

I lived in Cameroon for 2 years and enjoyed the traditional food there. Sumah's was like eating in Cameroon again. I enjoyed the Cassava and chicken and Peanut sauce. Delicious.
