Sister's African CuisineSister’s African Cuisine opened at 1240 Hertel Ave (between Colvin and Delaware) last week. The restaurant is owned by Mahawa Chelley. Sisters are more like mother and daughter, serving authentic Liberian food from family recipes.

Rice is the staple in Liberian cuisine. Liberia was founded by freed American slaves in the early nineteenth century and the food is often heavily influenced by American southern cooking. Standard ingredients include fish, bananas, fruit, plantains, coconut, okra and sweet potatoes. Stews are popular and are often served with fufu, a boiled starch like plantains or yams that are pounded to make them soft.

Website says – Sister’s African Cuisine brings the authentic taste of Africa to Buffalo. We are locally owned and operated and use family recipes that blend the right amount of spice and seasoning into each and every dish. We take great pride in bringing you unique, delicious dishes that will keep you coming back time and time again.

When you dine-in, you will have an experience unlike any other, with traditional African decor and a laid back atmosphere. Whether you’re in the mood for lunch, dinner or take-out, come by and see us in Buffalo today.

They are open for lunch and dinner, Tuesday – Saturday  11:00 am – 8:00 p.m.
