A unique and delicious experience: West African food prepared by West Africans. Ghanian and Senegalese cuisine with exotic ingredients like fufu and yam. Not always consistent, but on a good night they can't be beat. Warning: the hot sauce is nuclear, but the Ghanian beers on offer will keep you cool.

This Thai restaurant is owned by Norbert Frankenstein, who also runs several other Thai restaurants in Berlin. Norbert lived in Japan, teaching at a university, when he visited Thailand for the first time and fell in love with the country and its cuisine, especially in the poor northeastern region. Since those days he has had the desire to "export" the truly Siamese cuisine to Berlin. His chefs are from Thailand and the quality of the food is beyond question. But Norbert has given his business an underlying philosophy which is unique. Seeing the poverty in the North East of Thailand, he decided to initiate his own personal contribution for Third World. He regularly brings over staff from Thailand, giving them the chance to earn more money to invest in their future than they could ever expect in rural Thailand while supporting their families at home. A part of the profits from Mao Thai are being used in Thailand to support poor farmers or talented youths, who otherwise could not afford a good education. Norbert will be happy to chat with you and explain his concept. A wonderful interior and a truly authentic Siamese dinner will make your visit memorable.

Kollwitzstraße 18, 10405 Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg | Tel: 40 42 371, Fax: no fax | U2 Senefelderplatz |
The main attraction here used to be the artwork. "Der Kuhuunst-Giebel" - six life size plastic cows which grazed the grass green facade of Sprelacart - made this restaurant a real landmark in Prenzlauer Berg. A mixed crowd of locals and photo snapping visitors would watch the world go by from the terrace. Sadly, the cows became victims of their own popularity and were sold. Conveniently located by the U-Bahn, this is still a nice place for a bite to eat at the start or the end of an evening.

Suriya Kanthi
Knaackstr. 4, 10405 Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg | Tel: 44 25 301, Fax: no fax | U2 Senefelder Platz | Times: daily noon-1am | Cards: none | Prices: DM7-13. | Also at Gneisenaustr. 4 Berlin - Kreuzberg |
Sri Lankan food to rave about: very inexpensive, with organic meats, and impeccably authentic if you can convince them you want it spiced correctly. Cooler-downer, in season: avocado milkshake. Both restaurants are under the same ownership, and have the same menu and high quality.

Sushi Bar Ky
Oderburgstr. 40, Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg | U2 Eberswalderstr. | Times: 17-24
Officially an Imbiß, which means in this case, no toilet. Best sushi in the area (that´s practically all you can get here), friendly service, moderate prices makes it a satisfying snack spot. Same owner as Mäcky Messer.

Trattoria Paparazzi
Husemannstr. 35, 10435 Berlin - Prenzlauer Berg | Tel: 440 7333, Fax: no fax | U2 Eberswalder Str. | Times: 6pm-midnight daily, closed Mon in Jan | Cards: none
We knew this place was good well before the august Feinschmecker magazine declared it one of the best Italian restaurants in Germany. Signature dishes are the strangopreti, little pasta dumplings of spinach and Parmesan cheese, and the malfatti, served with sage butter. Disarmingly reasonably priced, excellent house wine.
