My experience with African food prior to Tropical Point was so bad I had decided I flat out did not like African food. But I was hungry and had remembered seeing many people (optimistically locals) dining at this restaurant near the Altona station, so I decided to give it a shot. It wasn't until I had seated myself and browsed the menu that I realized this was an 'African' restaurant.
I ordered the beef soup and fried bananas which were both very food. While relatively simple to cook, they were tasty and cheap. I had a very enjoyable experience here and would recommend it for a quick, tasty, cheap meal.
Just a FYI, the bread may not be complementary as I remember being charged a bit more than I should have (could've been an accident though). The menu was in German so I didn't really know and didn't really bother asking since it was so cheap anyway.
For normal African(ghanaian) atmosphere, this place is an ideal place to go.
the food is good but I will give this place 3 stars because the place will attract more customers if typical ghanaian food such as fufuo/rice balls(emotuo)/banku, tuo zaafi are served. or i will put it in the menu and allow people to give 2 or 3 days notice if they want such food. overall it is a good place to visit and have a first hand experience with African restaurant
Yummy and exotic African food, love it! Atmosphere is a bit over-lighted, but has some nice African paintings on the walls. Never had problems getting a seat there, and is reasonably priced. Great tasting stuff to try out (incl. palm beer) love the beef with okra and a corn flour ball on the side! And not spicy, only if you request it (for those who've had scorching-hot African food before)!
If you like african food you are at the right place here.
Hamburg citizens now these people and their delicious food since long time from many streetfairs or african markets. Everytime I wanted to eat there, I had to line up, because it was favoured by so many people.
One cannot expect best cuisine, but simple, well made african meals, in a quite large serving. The only thing, that disturbs a bit are the pre-heated pans, I dont like it too much like this, smells a bit like students mensa and not a restaurant for me, but some like, some dont. The decoration is understated african, very nice.
you should try rice with peanut sauce and meat and some yam, I like it a lot. Its not too hot, but very well spiced.
Even more better are the deep-fried bananas. What is really nice, is that they offer a large number of foreign beer, I cant tell nothing about the quality because I dont drink alcohol, but I think its a nice idea. As I now, they also invite to see (african) football there, this is also a very interesting offer for football friends.
There are just only about 8 or 9 dishes at the menu, I hope they will expand in the future to show that african food is more than peanut butter sauce...
