We ate here just after opening on a weekday. Since there were only two of us, we managed to squeeze in without a reservation - I suggest not taking that risk, and booking in advance. There are actually two separate locations, two door apart, each with an upstairs and a downstairs. The atmosphere is casual, dark, and low. The menu... More

Love the ambience and the concept. You do not get cutlery but shall eat with your hands (actually with a special bread) but that's making the place even more authentic and cool. Good place for vegetarian and vegan food fans.

This is s very popular restaurant (particularly with people under 30 years old) serving authentic African food. It is a complete dining experience from the way the food is served to the sand on the floor. Super friendly and attentive staff. Best to make a reservation at least two weeks in advance especially if you want to visit on a... More

Outstanding hummus and flat-bread for appetizer, for dinner we had the selection platter with a small amount of various dishes. Total amount of food was enormous and we had no space for desert. Properly spicy food which you don't find in Germany very often. Prices are extremely reasonable, service extremely friendly. Recommended!

I was just in Frankfurt for a day and decided to try this one because it has a very good review on TripAdvisor and I did have some craving for Ethiopian food after traveling in Europe for awhile. Though the theme (including the decoration and music the play) is more pan-Africa, even more Southern Africa, the food they serve is... More

This is just the perfect restaurant to go to!! Enjoy tasty African cuisine in a really nice atmosphere. The staff is great - always with a happy spirit. Only be aware to book a table in advance, going there by chance is almost impossible. One of my favourite places in Frankfurt - love it!!

Short menu with a variety of meat and vegetables dishes from african tradition. They have an option to mix several plates into one which is nice in order to try more than one, especially if you go in a larger group. Food is awesome (you have to eat with your hands ) the people are nice and the place is... More

I usually do not risk with the food but this risk was worthy. I liked the place very much and the food, wow, the food was amazing. It was gluten free and tasted heavenly. Staff were polite and interior of the place interesting. I will revist this restaurant for sure

Thank Blue R
