we ordered a "refreshing traditional fruity drink" with an appetising name at $4 while waiting for our meal... turned out to be ribena. we were not too impressed with that. then we heard the ominous "ding" of the microwave from the kitchen and were served a lukewarm, on the turn curry, brought to us about 20 seconds after the microwave door was slammed shut. served with a friendly smile though... what can i say. maybe 45 more seconds in the microwave??

Ok food but pretty poor customer service and being charged $12 for two small bowls of rice is just silly. It's a shame as the place does offer a different taste than other places around but the guy taking orders pushes his selections on you to bump up the bill, adds 'portions' and generally doesnt quite get the idea of customer service...it's expensive for what it is. Oh and there's no working light in the pretty dirty toilet.

While awaiting a show at the Theatre, we tried this little eatery. The food was delightful, but the wine was brought and bought from next door. It is truly worth the visit, so get in early.

We usually eat here before a show at the enmore (it’s only a few doors up). Always tasty and the staff are very friendly!

My suggestion is to order a “mixture” and you’ll be brought out a few different dishes (bread, two different types of veg, 1 chicken and 1 beef dish plus couscous). This will cost you around $30 a head and is very filling!

If you don’t have a reservation, get there early - it’s small and fills up fast!

You get nothing but tasty wholesome authentic African food in this Newtown favourite. Lat_Dior has a casual friendly atmosphere so it is good for groups and also quiet enough for couples. The food is delicious and well priced. I find the portions right for me, but I am not a big eater. Some find the portions a little small. If it is your first time ask and you will get well considered advice on what to order. The service is friendly with a big smile.
