My first time having East African food (or rather ANY African food besides Moroccan). This halal Somalian restaurant is nicely situated right next to the light rail station (VTA Ohlone-Chynoweth) and serves incredibly flavourful and meaty meals with huge portions, at surprisingly low prices given...More

I loved it. I have never had African food or goat meat. The meat was tender and not gamey. The portions are big so it was great to have lunch for the next day. It was getting very crowded at 7pm on a Saturday night...More

The place is heard to find. It is next to the VTA stop. The food is very good. The quantity served is huge. Definitely try "sports platter" with rice. The pilau tastes so good that you want to eat more. One star is off as...More

Having only limited African food in my days I found this a great change of diet and culinary adventure. Much different from Ethiopian style cuisine I found Jubba (Somalian) to be tasty, complex, and very filling. The atmosphere is simple and ultra clean. The lady...More
