What a delight! This is a popular restuarant, so make reservations. They have a "tree house" for a group of 3 or less (or more if you're small people!). They also have a mud hut which can fit a larger group. Can be confusing because there are two parts, both take reservations. We went in the first one we came... More

The staff here are friendly and fast. We had no reservation but they happily squeezed us in without any hassle or wait. We had a share platter which was filled with completely delicious food - the ocra lamb was particularly excellent. You eat everything with your hands and some pancake-like flatbread to scoop it up with. The honey wine was... More

We were fed up of having sausages. And German beer. So we wanted a change. We tried this place. Wow they had two parts of the Resturant. Bar side was very elegant. With tree houses and special African style decorations. We felt we are in Africa. Staff is friendly. For mail meals and beer we spent only 25€. The food... More

We came here the day before we left Frankfurt, having seen it fairly at the top of the restaurant rankings on TripAdvisor. Not knowing what to expect at all we found it to be one of the, if not the most interesting restaurants we've ever been to. The Service was excellent; Got there, seated within seconds, menu within 2 minutes... More

We went there once but could not eat: they were full and reservation is therefore highly recommended. They are closed at lunch time and have two reservation laps of time: from 6 to 9 pm and from 9 pm onwards. Being on a weekend break, we had the chance to be able to eat the next day on the terasse.... More

Great Ethiopian food and a cozy atmosphere. The mixed platter is enough to share but be careful as the lamb is quite spicy. The home-made beer is a great addition to the meal as well. Advice for women: do not wear high heel shoes as the floor is fully covered by sand, so if anything wear sandals or flip flops... More

So I've been to Im Herzen Afrikas every time I have been in Frankfurt and it keeps getting better. The mixed platter is huge for €10 and really delicious, the last time however I had the spicy lamb with onions and this was still enough food for a medium sized meal. The staff are friendly competent and I only wish... More

I should caveat this review with: I've never had Ethiopian food in Ethiopia. This is however, by far the best Ethiopian/pan-African restaurant I've eaten at in Europe. And so much food for the price too!

The food was absolutely amazing and really cheap. My two friends and I shared a selection of 6 different main courses for 10€ each! We also shared hummus for starters which was also very good. The service was very friendly and it was a relaxed atmosphere. I would not recommend sitting outside because it's right next to the street and... More

Glad we found this place on Tripadvisor. Authentic Ethiopian food, nice atmosphere and friendly/helpful staff. Try the shared platter if you're with a group. Can truly recommend booking a table.
