Outstanding Service! The staff not only accommodated our catering needs for a 14-Day training event, they provided everything we needed with healthy options, fresh food, and were extremely professional and a delight to be around. Their positive attitudes was motivating to see before beginning our training days and we all looked forward to seeing them every day. We absolutely loved being around them and their food was of the highest quality. Will absolutely recommend them to anyone who is seeking a professional food service. 10 Stars!!

Totally enjoyed my food here. The vibe is chill and the decor is clean and simple. All the food is made from scratch so it might be slow for some, and also could be an issue if there's not enough staff. While we there a potential patron left as the host/server never came to check on them: mostly due to them being in the back getting our order ready. Will definitely visit again whenever I need to showcase Cameroonian cuisine

Food was amazing and Julia was really nice. I had the Ndole on her recommendation and loved it. My only minor complaint is that the side dishes weren't explained very well. I only ordered the main dish and it came with rice and plantains. When I got the bill there was an extra charge for $6. So be warned, sides are not included.

Today my family and I came to this gem and the moment we arrived we was welcomed with warm smiles and generous hospitality, Julia and her staff is just as lovely as her food. You can tell the food was made with love and care, all of the food is great; the salmon and jolloff rice was the highlights for me with just the right spices to make your palate do somersaults. Lastly but surely not the least; the chocolate cake with the lemon lime cheese cake was to live for . All in all they're name speaks for its self “The Power House”. We enjoyed ourselves and will return again peace and love from your Moorish American Family!!!

[Update: I have changed my review to 5 stars after Julia kindly reached out to me and made adjustments. She does indeed have a new menu already printed, and is actively working to resolve these kinds of issues. I wish them the best of luck, and will be sure to return soon.]I wish I could give this restaurant five stars. The owners are lovely people, they are very accommodating to vegetarians, and this is probably the only restaurant in Chicago serving authentic food from Cameroon. Most dishes are made to order and they are delicious (expect to wait a while).The problem is that the menu is unclear about the prices. Some items clearly read as though they are included but we were charged extra for them. $16 for Egusi and $5 extra for each Fufu? Also, some prices were not as advertised. D'jino was advertised on the menu at $2, but we were charged $5.99 for each one. We ordered one side of Puff Puff, but were charged for two ($8). This adds up way too fast, especially when you're blindsided by half of the charges!So, my advice at the PowerHouse is to pay in advance and check your bill closely. If you do that, you'll have a wonderful meal without disappointing surprises. The Vegetarian Groundnut Stew was phenomenal with Oat Fufu and rice. The Ndolé is also worth a visit. I hope the owners see this review and make the basic, necessary adjustments to their approach to conducting business.
