Massai turned out to be a good place: They offer dishes from all the four main culinary regions of Afrika - with some explanations in the menu. The food was tasty, the ambiente pleasant and relaxed, and staff are very friendly.

This restaurant is far from gimmicky. Yes, they have exotic meat on offer, but they also have a large range of well balanced dishes with depth of flavour. Our meat was great but the sides and veg really shone, rarely something we'd say. Good cocktails...More

What a memorable experience! The decor is so well thought out, the staff friendly, the cocktails beautiful and the food to die for! I must go back because Massai Restaurant inspired Maasai Bar in Zurich. 😊

Been there for dinner with family and friends for my birthday on a Sunday night. I must admit not being an expert in African food despite having eaten African already in several occasions. But IMHO the menu was rich and varied, the food great tasting...More

We ordered zebra and ostrich thinking it was a fun gimmick, but it ended up tasting absolutely amazing - the zebra tasted like steak but with a stronger flavour, and the ostrich curry was served with fried banana that worked amazingly. The restaurant is well...More

I was there with my husband on my birthday. The deco on the table was prepared for the occasion. We ordered a three course menu with the variety of game meat, appetizers and dessert. The meals complemented each other. We will definitely visit again.

I am no expert of African tastes nor have I visited the continent, but Massai offered a teaser to what I assumed Africa could offer. A selection of exotic meats for the daring, of which we recommend crocodile, but of course there's something for the...More

I was in Berlin for a visit and as I haven’t been to my home country in 2 years, my wife thought it a good idea to try an African restaurant. I was impressed in entirety, from the music, to the ambience, to the food,...More

Prenzlauer Berg
No Berlin neighborhood has undergone a greater change
than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
