One of only two restaurants in the Washington Metropolitan area specializing in Authentic East African cuisine, Swahili Village is to Prince George's and neighboring counties of Maryland, what Safari DC is to the Petworth District of northwest Washington, DC. Located 5 minutes north of University of Maryland College Park Campus on US1 North, Swahili Village serves only the freshest ingredients and choice meats and poultry in its dishes that are indicative of the Tanzanian, Kenyan, Ugandan, Congo, and Malawi regions of East Africa. With a wide variety of beverages, and a spacious outside patio and roomy interior dining room, Swahili Village is great for hosting a private party, family outing, or intimate dinner for two. We are also available for catering your special occasion at any location of your choice. We look forward to seeing and servicing you at your next visit to Swahili Village.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I always enjoy coming here, the food is good, we went on a friday night so there was a dj spinning some african tunes. I loved the vibe, I wish they had salmon and other seafood options other than tilapia though. Also I would be patient because they do get busy and the waiter can be a little slow. Other than that I love coming here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been coming to Swahili Village for many years now and it's a treasure in our local community. In it's new location, there is ample parking, which was a problem before. The food is scrumptious! I love the red beans, spinach, and anything goat! If you're brave and can stand the heat, try the house hot sauce! Also save room and treat yourself to a slice of the mango mousse cake. The service is also stellar. The manager (owner?) even comes around to ask how everything is going. I love coming here and bringing new people. I know we're going to have a lovely experience.
