Great food, below-par service

Had a small lunch at this place and I have to say that the food was very good, I'll definitely be coming back to buy some of their dips and sauces. The waiters there however seem overwhelmed by the amount of people they have to serve, and that leads to below par service. On a weekend you can... read more

I went to Knofi a few times while living in Berlin and absolutely LOVED the food. Also a great choice for vegetarians (and even a great vegan breakfast). Unfortunately the service does not uphold that standard. Either they're too busy with serving the masses or are more chatting and chilling than serving when it's slow. On top it's more of... More

The food looked great but unfortunately we never got to try it as the service was so terrible we walked out before ordering (first time I've ever done this!). When we came in, I ordered a tea and when my friend asked for her drink, the waiter just shouted "no english" at her (despite the fact she just said the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a turkish lady who was born and raised in Kreuzberg. When we came in it looked like a shop and nobody showed us to a table so we picked out one self. The waiter was very friendly and helpfull by picking out from the menu what we would like. We started with a... More

Other than the cozy atmosphere and the unique decoration, I enjoyed ordering a knofi specialisation without knowing what's in it and discovering the mixture of different tastes. Definetly recomend and I am going there again next week for sure.

This is a nice, packed, shop-com-eatery. The setting is a little too bright, too much in front of the shop part of it to spend hours over dinner, but the food is excellent value, and there are obviously tons of options around.

We met my nephew who lives nearby here for lunch on his recommendation. It's in a nice, bohemian part of Kreuzberg. There are in fact two restaurants/cafes across the road from each other. It's a Turkish/Middle Eastern themed menu. Lots of choices and food was good and not expensive. The staff were, however, pretty brusque bordering on the rude -... More

Knofi has two premises, within close walking distance of each other. One has a cafe-feel, the other is closer to a restaurant Dined at both of them and was very impressed. First time round ate a Turkish platter with a variety of small dishes (falafel, vine leaves, etc) as well as a stunning walnut chili paste (no idea where to... More

Staying in Kreuzberg

Neighborhood Profile
Kreuzberg
Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central neighborhood is beginning a new chapter. In the 1950s and 60s, Turkish guest workers settled around Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and 90s, rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a carefree life here. An old hospital even became a hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today you can still find the best kebabs in town and many underground clubs, but a lot has changed as well. The hospital has been transformed into an art center, and increasingly you will find new urban cafés, restaurants and designer shops. Rising housing prices and gentrification threaten the spirit of this area along the Spree River, but the neighborhood’s legacy is upheld by a very engaged community fighting to preserve its rebellious identity.
