My friends and I went there on a Friday night and just as they tell you on their website we made reservations a few days ahead. It was my first time there and everybody said that the food is incredibly delicious and sooo different. So by the time we got there I expected something very extraordinary. To my disappointment it...

This was my second dinner at this restaurant. My first dinner was in April 2014 and I absolutely loved the food/drinks, ambiance, and service. I had the Momo & Red Sea to drink and we all shared the Meat Mixed Platter - delicious! I was in the area again in December and decided to choose this restaurant for my birthday... More

We came here looking for something a bit different and were lucky to get a table for two, without reservations) on a Friday evening. The decor set the tone for our experience: exotic (but not overdone), good food and good service. We ordered the sampler for two, which included two meat and three vegetable dishes plus a green salad, nicely... More

Nice, well prepared variety of foods with generous portions in a quite uniquely decorated restuarant. Not someplace for the unadventurous or parochial--yes part of the decor involves sand floors to give the idea of eating in a tent, yes the food is all served on real North African bread (which is REAL to a large potion of Africa), and yes...

If you would like to eat in sand and get some sand in your Food on the plate, this is a right place for you. My veggie humus was terrrible, the waiter not very friendly... The whole evening was a joke.

I have been to this restaurant about four times and I have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Some people say Savannah was even better for East African food, but I have not tried it yet.

Very cosy environment with a nice and friendly staff. The food is amazing if you like non-German and well-seasoned food.

The idea is brillant. The restauramt imitates an african tend, with chairs, table and bar made of wood. Very tasty food and reasonable portion and price for two persons. Different flavours, spices and textures. The beer is good and the staff is very kind, polite and helpful. The floor is sand and you are invited to take your shoes of... More

We were seated in the "tree house" which was quite cool. Each table was different, but cozy. Amazing cocktails (I was told to try "red sea" by a friend, and our waitress said "that's the good one! "), and they brew their own beer. Food was delicious, we got a platter (where you get to choose one meat dish and... More
