Glasgow Times:

Afrikana is led by entrepreneur Omair Ali who felt there was a gap in the market for a restaurant serving traditional African recipes with a contemporary twist. 

He said: "Our aim is to create a space where people can experience something like no other and enjoy an unforgettable dining experience.

"We want to tantalise the taste buds and showcase the beautiful culture, art, music and food through our restaurants."

Syeda Kayanath, brand director of Afrikana, said: "Our vision is centred around delivering the essence of home-cooked African-inspired cuisine.

"Our menu caters to various dietary requirements, ensuring that our guests can relish our offerings irrespective of their preferences, including halal, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options."

To celebrate the grand opening next week, the first 50 customers will enjoy 50% off their bill, while everyone else will enjoy a generous 20% off for the rest of the opening weekend. 

Afrikana will open at 5pm on Friday, November 24 at 426 Sauchiehall Street.
