My favourite African spot in Frankfurt. Food is excellent and cheap, try the mixed plate and you'll get to taste several things with your friend(s). You eat with your hands and you share the food. Sand floor and African music make you feel like you are really in Africa.

This restaurant is so cool - nothing like I've seen in Frankfurt! With it's sand-covered floors and African hut walls, Im Herzen Afrikas definitely has a special & cozy atmosphere. 5 of us shared a platter of finger food with various meat and vegetarian components in different delicious sauces. These components are eaten with a kind-of naan bread and without... More

A superb Eritrean restaurant im Herzen Frankfurts!! The food is served in a very authentic environment and tastes just awesome. You got to use your hands but it is totally worth a trip!!

With sand inside on the floor, small huts and low seating chairs, feels cozy. Ordered a local light beer called PEMPE. Pretty good. I am not a fan of dark bitter beers. This had a nice flavor. For the food, I went with an African style mixed vegetarian platter (to be eaten by hand). Very delicious and good proportion. Definitely... More

Had never had African food before.. It was awesome!! The server helped us order and we enjoyed everything we tried.. Unique experience with the sand floor.. Although we did apparently pick one of the hottest days of the year to visit so It was quite warm inside.

We planned a party here for my sons' graduation and from the 1st contact to the last, we were impressed. Service here gets high points for being very attentive as well as friendly. Not something you get in many restaurants in Germany. The decor is wonderful, with great lighting, candles, and their use of wood, colors, music, tables and cushions.... More

The sand on the floor was different, but the lack of cutlery was a surprise I was not expecting. Tasty food and good value for money.

The initial surprise of entering a restaurant with sand all over the floor soon gave way to a fun dining experience with friendly, helpful staff and vey tasty food. We shared a mixed plate (2 beef dishes and 3 vegetarian) and were shown how to eat it with the rolled bread and fingers only (a bit messy but fun). For... More
