“Probably the best Turkish food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Really nice restaurant with very tasty Turkish food. Fingerfood, whole dishes and tajines. Everything is good and fresh. A must visit when you're in Kreuzberg.

“Good Food, nice Place, nice Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

We discovered Knofi just by walking by, exploring Berlin Kreuzberg.
Kreuzberg was once the neighborhood with a not that good image, but now it is kind of a multi-cultural, eat-drink-party-relax-and-enjoy place.

So, Knofi is really nice. We sat outside, where they have some chairs an tables, so we could watch the streets and so on.

The service was really nice and the food was delicious.

Try the "Knofi Teller" (Knofi plate) and the "Sultan Teller" (Sultan plate).
We were a party of 4, ordered both plates and really had lots of food.
Maybe not as much as you would eat when you're alone, but really enough.

All the food seems to me hand-made and really tastes good.

Try the turkish Mocca. Kind of an Espresso for real men... ;-)

Prices are ok, we had
2 Plates
1 Couscous Salat
2 Beer
2 Applejuice
1 Mocca
and payed around 30€... what is really ok.

“Good quality but extremely rude waiter”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

Knofi @ bergmanstrasse has got two outlets. One, with a focus on delicatessen sauces with some wines and products from south east Mediterranean region and the other (right opposite) with a a focus mainly on sweets. The quality on both outlets is generally good and there is big selection of sweet or salty products. However, the service is seriously jeopardizing the reputation of this place. A rude and unhelpful waiter managed not only to make us forget the admittedly good quality of the food but also to decide not to go back again. It's really a pity for the place to have such a poor service.

“What a great bustling place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2011

There are two Knofi restaurants across each other. After going into both, we have decided to have our dinner at Bermannstr. 11. The menu is more or less the same, but in this one they do on top Goessie, which is like paratha filled either with minced meat or vegetarian. It costs only 4.30EUR and tastes great and is sufficient meal for one. We have also shared Knofi Teller, which is selection of mediterrenean antipasti for 7 EUR. The total bill was 18 EUR which included half a litter of their house wine. We sat on the bar table watching the happenings on the street. Both restaurants are more like providori stores, small and bustling. There are few tables outside. We have really enjoyed our dinner.

“Tasty food, friendly service and a great place to sit & talk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2010

Very simple turkish food that is very tasty. They had a choice of about 4-5 homemade soups, great flat bread dishes. I would recommend the mixed vegatarian plate which had a small portion a variety of their foods.

If you stumbled accross this quality of food in Turkey you would know you had left the tourist area as it's authenticity was very evident.

Staff were helpful, they provided an english menu when they could see us struggling with german.

Knofi 2 has opened up just opposite and this seemed to have a deli as well.

Typically ate for 5-6 euro's each.
