Sand on the floor, tables are low to the ground and space is tight. But the food is great. you eat with your hands. must have a reservation for this spot. Popping in doesn't work!

For sure you ll hve enough to eat with the mixed plate. The food is really tasty (chicken is spicy...) And there is a real great variety! The service was really nice and the waiters really smily... Hard to not recommend!

This is a must try food! Wash your hands and say goodbye to fork and knife! It is so delicious that you may bite your fingers. My advice: If you're a food lover, or a food adventurer, you must try this restaurant!

Every time I'm in the area I have to go for dinner. We adore this restaurant. The relaxed atmosphere and simply delicious food that require only fingers. It's too good not to lick your fingers when you're done. I took a Michelin chef here for fun and he couldn't get enough. I would recommend the mixed platter and get a... More

At the time "Im Herzen Afrikas" was rated #6 out of two-tousend-something restaurants in Frankfurt, so we figured that it cannot be bad and we were not disappointed. Most of the restaurants nearby were already about to close at 10pm, so there was not... More
