Reviews from the customers:

–    Malian and Senegalese cuisine is served here, along with South African wines. Good taste!
–    More than just a friendly little dinner, Calabash serves as the focus for Tokyo’s small francophone West African community. There’s often live music.
–    Calabash is much more than just a restaurant-bar; it’s an unofficial cultural center for Tokyo’s disparate diaspora of Francophone West Africans.
–   The kitchen produces a good selection of meat- or fish-based stews that are eaten with rice, couscous or fufu, the thick, dough-like staple made from yam starch.
–   The wine list mixes generic New World varietals from South Africa with the thin, sour traditional wines of North Africa.
–   One of the specialties at Calabash is tilapia, a medium-size freshwater fish, sometimes known as African perch, which they grill whole with a spicy sauce popular in Co^te d’Ivoire. But we chose instead the tieb djen (pronounced “cheb jen”), a Senegalese dish of grilled swordfish served on a pilaf of long-grain rice, fancifully called “paella,” with a good selection of cooked vegetables.
