The decor is so fun and the food is very good with a diverse menu full of unique choices. The only downside is that it's pretty expensive for Dresden - I paid over 20 euros for myself alone. The lunch menu is less expensive, but doesn't have the stuff you REALLY want to try.

We (parents and one boy age 8) enjoyed the mix plate, where you get to taste zebra, crocodille, and kangoru. It was all very tasty, and there was enough for the 3 of us in the deal for 2.

Incredibile atmosphere, even wall is decorated with African paintings or souvenirs or fake animals. Good food (menu includes zebra and crocodile). Playing typical South African music at some point

Mama Africa brings the real African feeling to Dresden. Their food is perfectly seasoned and the meat amazingly tender. I have been to various African restaurants, but Mama Africa was really different and you would not expect that type of restaurant in Dresden. Would go there again!

We are staying in the new town and couldn't find anywhere interesting to eat when walking around, then we found this place on tripadvisor. It is a bit hidden from the main road but worth the small detour. Staff were very friendly and the food was delicious reminding us of our honeymoon in South Africa. Would definitely recommend and would... More

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Dresden and a fantastic place to beat the wanderlust blues on a rainy day - I make an effort to get a table here whenever I'm in town. The decor of the restaurants is spectacular and well thought through across all 3 floors, the outdoors area and even the loos. The food... More

The menu has exotic dishes from reptiles like alligator to ostrich and all of it's good. The atmosphere is pleasantly jungle like, in a good way. The bathrooms are clean and carry on the safari theme.

This was an unusual discovery, a South African restaurant hidden away in Neustadt. It serves game, fish, couscous and other items with African influence and has African beers and wines. The quality of the food was high and the prices reasonable. If you want to stray a bit from a German diet, try this place.

My wife and I were very excited to dine at Mama Africa. The menu is very interesting; you can order ostrich, zebra, and crocodile, among some other more conventional options. I had ostrich steaks, and my wife had a fish. The meats were good, but the sides were not very appetizing.

Thank rw0503
