My name is Mona Maljun and I am truly passionate about my Somali Culture. I have always been driven to bring a taste of Somalia to New Yorkers. As such I accomplished this when the doors of Safari Restaurant opened on May 15, 2015. New York City is the melting pot of diversity and it I thought it was ideal to introduce new East African cuisine to the already existing rich blend of global, exquisite dishes that exists here in New York the City. Safari restaurant offers a comfortable, amicable ambiance. The melodious sounds of East Africa tickle your ears as you enjoy the fusion of rich exotic flavors of Somalia. The pleasant staff makes you feel quite right at home and we cater to a wide plethora of patrons.
My passion and dreams have coalesced become a reality with the opening of Safari Restaurant and my husband and I take great pride in serving our community.
