Toller Service und Location. Eins der besten afrikanischen Restaurants nach erfolgloser Suche. Die Kaffeezeremonie war eines der super highlights.

The Restaurant Ambassel in Frankfurt am Main’s bustling centre offers diners the opportunity for some remarkable East African cuisine. Lovers of authentic Ethiopian dining will relish the taste of Ambassel’s superbly made dishes.

With each dish accompanied by an explanatory text, the sprawling menu of Restaurant Ambassel offers two levels of spiciness; one being the original hot version, and the other slightly milder. The specialties of this Frankfurt restaurant range from a spicy lamb casserole with Ethiopian curry spices called ‘YebegWot’, to ‘Bozena Shira’, spicy chickpeas with stewed beef.

Containing a myriad of Ethiopian decorations, the taste of Africa is palpable with every sense. By dividing the dining room into sizeable areas, the atmosphere at Ambassel retains a relaxed and pleasant feeling despite its business.

Thanks to its central location, the Ambassel is easy to reach by public transport (tram stop: Frankensteiner Platz) or in a 7-minute drive from Frankfurt central station.

    Sehr schönes Ambiente, mit Blick auf den Main. Essen sehr lecker und voller Geschmack. Wer Lust auf Neues hat und nicht zu spiessig gemeinsam von einer Platte zu essen, der ist hier richtig. Wer sich darauf ein lässt erlebt tolles Essen, nette und hübsche Servicemitarbeiter. Ein Highlight ist der selbst vor Ort, im Restaurant geröstete Kaffee, sehr gut. Rundum authentisch.
