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

We were here for a late dinner after a busy working day and improvised Frankfurt sightseeing. 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

When friends come to Frankfurt, we usually take them to this restaurant. The optimal combination of great food, extremely friendly service and: everything at a price that is more than fair! The mixed plate is always a good choice. Give it a try and don't forget to reserve a table a couple of days in advance.

It is one of several Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurants in Frankkurt. The food is authentic and the ambience is African. Give it a try !

This place has the best Ethiopian food I've ever had. You can order individual plates or large sharing plates. If you don't realize it, typical fare is eaten by scooping the meats or veggies with the special bread so there are no utensils here. The atmosphere is fun and African themed too. Highly recommend it.

Thank RAYE M
