This place is great. Drinks are amazing and the food is really good. I am so happy we have Messob in Uppsala - I would want more restaurants like this one. The only thing I am unhappy about with this place is that the building is nothing special, even if it's quite cosy.

The food was excellent, served on an injera (large spongy crepe), you can eat it with your hand if you want to. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Great restaurant, great experience.

The restaurant is a bit away from the city center and hard to spot. The food is very tasty and adjusted according to Swedish taste. Use your hands, if you want to get the best flavor of those dishes.....

This is a place where you eat with your hands. It was a curious experience, cheap and with good food.

Nice place with african food, which is quite unusual. Tasty and fun to eat with your hands. Sometimes the portions look a bit small and mediocre but you end up full anyway. Good service, nice atmosphere, interesting beers and a good evening with friends

Really good food but not really a surprise. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere. Didn't take long for the food to be served even though the restaurant was full of bookings.

We tasted alot of African beer and had a mix of different stews and sauces with their special sponge-bread. Traditionally, you eat with your hands by using the bread to spoon up the food. Very tasty food, service was no more than OK.
