I was there with my husband on my birthday. The deco on the table was prepared for the occasion. We ordered a three course menu with the variety of game meat, appetizers and dessert. The meals complemented each other. We will definitely visit again.

Massai has a very authentic atmosphere with interior decoration, ambient music, service staff and dishes. You can try different variations of African food including from crocodile meat to ostrich. Starters prepared with legumes are also nice to try.
