Excellent food with an African flair, but not so "out of the box" that even picky eaters can find something. We have dined here twice and love the atmosphere and food. A FANTASTIC selection of African wines, as well. The sommelier is great in asking what your preferences are and choosing a wine that pairs well and tastes great.

For a while, I heard how great the fillet was here, but I didn't try it until last fall. The restaurant was beautiful, we ate in the wine room which was a bit more intimate than the main dining room, although I did feel that we missed something by not dining in the main room. The food is unique, and a bit spicy -- but fun to try!! The fillet comes with macaroni and cheese instead of potatoes, which is a nice change from most places. The pistachio creme brulee was amazing!! You should definitely try this for something different!!

Jiko brings the diverse flavors of Africa to Orlando. It is located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. The food, the service, the wines, the desserts, and the atmosphere are great!

This is a great restaurant if you're looking for something different. The African cuisine is outstanding, but not necessarily for everyone... some of it is a bit exotic. The "Taste of Africa" is an enjoyable appitizer. I didn't like

We went here for our anniversary. The food and atmosphere is just wonderful. The service was excellent .\r
Don't let the mac and cheese on the menu fool you.... it's different from what you have had before.

Comming from an extremely picky eater... The food is simply amazing! Also, try to get a seat at the chef's table if you can, the preparation is fun to watch and the preps are good conversationalists.

Beautiful restaurant in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge features servers from different African nations. The food was variable, our favorites included the delicious cold octopus appetizer and bread sampler. The main entrees were above

Try Jiko, located in Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. An unusual restaurant in an unusual resort. You will not see anything quite like this. A bit cramped with tables though. Try the taste of Africa sauces & flatbreads, very good starter.

stunning interior with superbly prepared food...just different enough to give you an African flavor but catering to American tastes.

The lighting orchestrated sunset added to the ambience. Incredible wines although the sparkling wine
