I loved that the #2 on the meat dish was spicy enough for me!! They speak very good English, as I went with a colleague who didn't speak German. This place is very big, with lots of nooks and crannies. You also sit near the floor. It also looks like they have a roof patio, as well. Get there early as it's packed on a Friday night!

If you want something different and you are up-to eating with your hands, this restaurant should be on your list. Great Ambience, food is super tasty (and spicy) and service is pretty good too. Try the mixed platter for a unique African experience

We went there last Saturday evening. The restaurant was well visited, we barely got a table next to the door. But nevertheless it was really nice. The food could have been spicier, but it was well done. You eat with your fingers using just a layer of white bread to catch the food to eat it - nice experience (I do not know if it is possible to get some cutlery). The food is typical African (Bread, Beans, Vegetables, regional spices).

The service was great. We got our food quick enough. The staff was well trained and nice.

I really can recommend that place to pay a visit.

Good to know: You have to pay cash beneath 30€

Nice interior - you are sitting on low chairs and tables. Small selection of dishes with or without meet that get served on a platter. You pick up the stews with sourdough bread and eat it straight away. The taste of the meet dishes could be more differentiated, but over all it was a good experience.
