I've been going to Ngoma since I discovered it in 2004, it was great, I'd make my way there and share with my friends this absolute great dining place, the food was slow to come but worth the wait. Unfortunately, the service has gotten worse especially towards African patrons! However, recently, July 5th, 2008, I was given the worst treatment by the waiter and the owner; not a smile or greeting from either one of them but when the other people walked in...both of them rushed helter skelter to the new people's service! It was quite unfortunate that my sister and I were treated like scam yet we were paying as much as the other people! Unfortunately, only Caucasian patrons get excellent service. I am Kenyan and do like to enjoy the African cuisine. When I went there with my White friends, we got good servive because of my friends' presence; Unbelievable. I would not recommend this restuarant to anyone since they obviously have preferrence for other people besides their own. how sad! i drove from San Diego to LA to have dinner there but I don't think I will ever again. I'd rather go to the Stabucks across the street form Ngoma or to the Ethiopian Rests on Fairfax . What a Shame, I left them a note with my bill, hope they take heed.
Pros: African food always good
Cons: you get the worst service if you are african!
