This restaurant is really good. Food is very good. Everybody speaks English making things easier. We got good advice on both food and beverage. We were with kids and waiters have been very helpful suggesting us what to order for them. If you love Ethiopian / Eritrean food this is the place for you. Strongly recommend

Really good dinner with great service and comfortable atmosphere. I'm a regular and can't get bored of this restaurant in frankfurt. I would recommend always reserving (especially Thursday-Saturday) as they are often very full.

Ok. There are two famous african restaurants in Frankfurt. Savanna is one of them. In both you do not have a really big menu. In both you get more or less the same. But Savanna is just different. You do not find a smile nicer than here. And to be honest, if you go to an african to eat almost... More

The food was from from Eritrea with a mixture of dishes to taste and no knives and forks! We had beautiful pancakes to use to scoop up the aromatic and spicy food. Comfortable. pleasant ambience and low, unobtrusive... More

Compared to other African restaurants in the Frankfurt area; the food at Savanna was good and really tasty authentic Eritrean food but much more expensive than other similar restaurants and with smaller portions. If you are in a group, all meals are served randomly in big dishes that go in the middle of the table. My meal was put in... More

I have read reviews from people complaining about the taste of the food. Its best to set expectations before visiting the restaurant. Ethiopian food is simple and has a lot of textural and aromatic overtures similar to Indian food. Well, this is what I have discovered. At Savanna the food is served at a brisk pace. The two ladies at... More

Food was well spiced, the 'pancakes' where not too sour tasting and the drinks were also good. Only minor thing would be the lighting..could be more romantic since the lights are a bit too bright in my opinion..other than that..super!
