Hadiani is family-run, serving West African cuisine in observance of Islamic customs. Fish with attieke (traditional couscous made with cassava) is among the specialties. Another popular dish is shrimp plantain skewers. There also is a vegetarian menu.

“At Hadiani African Restaurant, you won’t only experience great African food but also the unique West African culture,” Diallo said.

Mayor Matsumoto Wright was joined in the celebration by Mayor Pro Tem Bryan Wahl and Councilmembers Erin Murray, Rory Paine-Donovan and Steve Woodard. Also in attendance were representatives from the new Mountlake Terrace and Brier Chamber of Commerce.
