One of the more interesting dining experiences in years. The restaurant is very small so I'd recommend booking in advance. I tried booking the same night as we were going but was told it was full - but she told me to come over and they'd do their best to fit us in. Only had to wait a few minutes.... More

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and went there with great expectations. We weren't disappointed for one bit. The atmosphere, the food and the staff all were very good. I would definitely recommend dining at Im Herzen Afrikas. Since it is a popular place, making a reservation might be a good idea.

Straight forward menu with delicious dishes. As we had difficulty choosing we took the menu with something of everything. All superb taste from mild to spicy. The interior is different and with sand on the floor and low seating arrangements, it has a very cozy atmosphere. Waiting staff were fast friendly and very attentive. For bigger groups I would recommend... More

It is really great place, with great atmosphere. Music is nice and doesn't disturb the conversations. Staff are friendly and can tell some stories about the food. And the food is really fantastic.

It's cheap (10 euro per person), the staff are really friendly and it's got a nice atmosphere. I wouldn't say the food was amazing but it was a memorable experience and I would really like to go back some time.

I went in this restaurant (which is close to the main station) an evening as business dinner with all colleagues. The restaurant is small, still they were able to accommodate all 25 persons in three big tables (and there were other guests). The atmosphere is nice, Africa-style furniture, and the food is a good typical hand-eating: we had the bread... More

A small restaurant always filled to the brim. Reservation needed, but certainly worth it. The food was fabulous and the setting fun. We had the 10 euro tasting platter that included 7 different meat and vegetable options together with injera bread. Will go again when I am in Frankfurt. Note: you might end up sitting on a low stool or... More

Went here with my spouse. Had to reserve beforehand. Filled to the brim. Long tables shared with strangers, but didn't really bother us. Very nice atmosphere. Friendly service to us who didn't know how to behave or eat. Food was exquisite and relatively cheap.

In the middle of the city this gem is hidden away, a stone's throw from the Euro sign. I recommend to take the 10 €/person big dish where you can share different kind of stews. I also had my Eritrean buddy quality proof it, and he was more than impressed. Make sure you reserve on beforehand.
