The food is delicious, great atmosphere and very good prices and portions. The only problem is you really have to make you reservation before otherwise is almost impossible to get a table.

This is a great place to go in frankfurt. The food is delicious, the place is clean and the staff is friendly. The decor is quite interesting with a choice of seating in a hut, a tree house or around a table with others. Nice experience!

Ok, this is not high cuisine or anything. But it is something different, unusual, tasty and fun. I don't remember what African country the food is from, but it tastes really good and I love the fact that you have to eat with your hands. The people in the restaurant are really nice and everything is set up so it... More

One of the more interesting dining experiences in years. The restaurant is very small so I'd recommend booking in advance.

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and went there with great expectations. We weren't disappointed for one bit. The atmosphere, the food and the staff all were very good. I would definitely recommend dining at Im Herzen Afrikas. Since it is a popular place, making a reservation might be a good idea.

Straight forward menu with delicious dishes. As we had difficulty choosing we took the menu with something of everything. All superb taste from mild to spicy. The interior is different and with sand on the floor and low seating arrangements, it has a very cozy atmosphere. Waiting staff were fast friendly and very attentive. For bigger groups I would recommend... More
