I was alone, and had made no booking. They did however worked uot a way to accomodate me. I just had to be quick. At first I thought I could wait in the waiting area, but it was actually restaurant tables. So in the end, you are seating very low, legs stretched in sand. You get large plates with very... More

My title sums it all! Great deco inside the pave. Staff super friendly, ordered the mixed platter and asked the servers to choose their best 3 options. Super filling, didn't get a chance to sample the dessert. Altho they could increase the menu a bit for the regulars i would think.

I don't often write restaurant reviews but felt I had to comment on this one. Definitely worth a visit if you are in frankfurt. The atmosphere is so unique. I've never been to Africa but I felt like I was there for the night. You open the curtains to the restaurant and you are instantly in another world. The smell... More

My best friend and I wanted to try something new. We reserved a table at about 8 pm. I must say it was really impressive. They built and decorated the restaurant to look like a tree house. You could sit either on the floor or at the table. The food and the music all melted together to make a really... More

Unique restaurant. Busy but we were lucky they could accommodate us on a Friday night-we were there early. Loved the interior design of the restaurant. Very warm and interesting furnishings and tables/seating. The food is unique and very tasty. Reasonable price. Service was excellent. Would go back again.

The food was really good. You share the food from a large tray placed in the centre of the dining table. Numerous Injera (spongy flat braed like a crepe ) are layered on a tray and topped with various spicy stews. You tear off pieces of Injera and dipping them into to the stews. Home-brewed Beer was served (Pembe).

The food is really good and the fact that everyone eats in the same dish with his hands brings some unusual ambiance to your meal. The decoration is also for something in that as you will be eating on a low table and have your feets in the sand. Prices of the food and drinks aren't really expensive. In addition,... More

Pairing with a couple of African beers to boot. Tasty Eritrean cuisine, good ambiance, music just at the right level to still have a lively discussion!

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...
