Anton, the Grillmaster, comes from the Netherlands. His grilling skills were firstly recognized by his friends and family back in the Netherlands. Everyone loved it whenever he was in charge of preparing meat for BBQ for birthdays and private parties. The meat was always so soft and tasty. They were encouraging him to start his own business.
As he previously worked in a food business, he started to think about this idea more seriously. The turning point was when he bought a smoker and started to attend food festivals in the Netherlands.
He became very famous for his food, so his friend, who once attended the festival and saw how popular his food was, suggested opening a restaurant in The Gambia.
He saw it as an excellent opportunity to do the job he loves all year round, six months in Europe during summertime and six months in The Gambia during wintertime.
So, he went to The Gambia, fell in love with the people, and opened Kasumai BBQ and Steakhouse. He decided to offer something unique on the market. Therefore, he did a totally different set-up with steaks from all over the world and always freshly prepared vegetables, salads, and sauces. They prepare Yankee style ´low and slow´ BBQ dishes on the wood burning smoker and hot & fast grill classics on the ´old fashioned´ stone grill. And this is the main reason why it became very popular also in The Gambia. People love it.

All dishes are served with either baked, hassleback or mashed potatoes or french fries. Their motto is: “You might come as a stranger, but we make sure you will leave as a friend.
