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!

We went to Massai on a Wednesday night at 8:00pm and the 3 of us were seated right away. They had lots of great drinks, including delicious mango beer and cool cocktails. Unique soup, which was tasty even though I'm not much of a soup person. We got to sample complimentary falafels from the kitchen which were delish! Shared the... More

So, we didn't really know what to expect when we stumbled upon this restaurant after a long day of sight-seeing. The menu outside looked intriguing so we went in. The décor was stylish and more upmarket than the outside would appear. Service was friendly and we were given a table straight away without a reservation (Sunday night). The waitress was... More

I was invited to Massai and had a very nice dinner there (more than average (which is overall rating I gave), but not "very good" either). If you like meat and would like to try ostrich, crocodile, springbok, zebra and other game, you will be happy here. I dont eat meat, and the vegetarian food platter I ordered was very... More

Went here on the recommendation of friends who live in Berlin. Had to wait so make sure you book if you go on a weekend so must be a popular place for Berliners to go. Atmosphere was great and service fantastic. Food unsure about, not very happy eating some of the meats my fellow guests had. I had the chicken... More

Everything is massive in a way - from the furniture to the meals, so you feel a bit intimidated by the whole atmosphere, but it passes after you get used to it. The waitress didn't look to keen on doing her job, and I was disappointed to find they didn't have two of the red wines from the list so... More

It is one of my favorite African restaurants in Berlin. My recommendation: the zebra meat is tasty and well cooked and do not forget to order banana beer (you cannot drink just one bottle).
