Awesome menu, interiour and staff

I've been there with a friend mid december 2014. I liked the interior, the menu and staff who were very friendly a lot. Usually it's pretty packed so make sure u give them a call ahead.

Service was ok but very overpriced and disappointing food quality. . Feels like one of those chain restaurants who have the same single supplier for an entire country and everything has got the same taste.

Cozy, if a little darkly lit, place - with good service and interesting dishes (which are quite good). The dishes are conversation starters, and were well paired with wine by the staff. A place one might consider for either a business dinner, or a night out with a significant other.

“Massai” is a restaurant where I felt comfortable from the first moment. The African decoration along with the dim illumination and the African music created a brilliant atmosphere. The waitresses in their colorful costumes were not only charming, but they did everything with a big smile, which was a feel-good factor. I ordered a veggie dish, Gpoma, which was served... More

Starter : soup=>Really good Then the main dish of lamb and chicken was reallyy not that good especially for the chiken which had no taste at all. Finally the... More

We ate the Kalahari, the Springbockfilet and the Ostrich steak. We (from Vietnam, Germany and Canada) all loved the food. Highly recommended if you want to try African food but stay 'safe'. Maybe should be called African food for beginners. For me this is a plus, my wife doesn't like to eat with her hands so many African restaurants are... More

We had the mixed entree each of which tasted great and then the antelope and springbok which were both grilled very well to rosé accompanied by a bottle of Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon for E27 which was delicious. The service was fine. The main courses came with a soup which was highly interesting. The decor was well thought through and the... More

Since I moved to Berlin 4 years ago, I've been seing some advertisements for this place at the metro station Eberswalder Straße and always thought I should check it out. A friend who had been there organised a get together there with other friends, I of course said yes. The decoration is very nice, reall into theme, the staff is... More

We had a good meal at Massai. The service was very good. The menu has a number of options. We were generally pleased with our selections and would likely return in the future.

We go here everytime we come to Berlin. The food is just so great. I have never had anything like it. Anything off the menu tastes delicious. Try it!
