About the restaurant Massawa

"NORTHERN RED SEA - You will find the Eritrean specialty restaurant Massawa just behind Gare de l'Est. Open for lunch and dinner during weekdays, it will make you discover original and delicious cuisine in a simple setting decorated with African objects.

RITUALS OF TABLE - Here, the principle is simple: a tray for an entire table and no place settings... You have several options: cut the waffles placed at your disposal into small pieces in order to dig into the dishes or more basically eat with your fingers.

DISHES TO BE TESTED - Start with a lentil salad, continue with the Massawa and its vegetables in a salad. And to reset your emotions (spices are always measured according to your taste), you can enjoy fresh fruit salad for dessert!

On Saturday, May 24 and Tuesday, June 3, the restaurant offers that you participate in the vigils of Massawa during dinner. The principle is simple: two comedians will come to your table present a brief text belonging to Eritrean literature to you. The gourmet menu reinforced by a literary menu, Massawa invites you to a culinary and cultural trip.
Usual promotions apply and you can thank the actors by sliding your donation in the aghelghel, this conical, woven palm leaf basket that keeps your food hot, if you want to."

low budget location but rather sweet, very ethnic, and a little unusual. Limited menu. Friendly.

Excellent food, very nice staff, and good value for money. For me this is the Best East African restaurant in Paris

Great food & friendly service! We also got free extra sauce because we liked it so much and the total check for two persons with wine and beer was only 35€.

This was far from my first visit to the place, food is full of flavour and can be adapted on how you do bear the spiciness level of it! I especially recommend the lentils-based starter, main courses are all of equivalent quality and rely of ones' taste! Not a restaurant for guests looking for a soft and cosy atmosphere, but everything else is there! I definitely recommend.

It's been an overall pleasant stay at the Massawa restaurant.
The food was really good, nicely seasoned and when we left the restaurant we were more than well fed. The House wine also tasted alright.
It's can just recommend the place, you won't regret it.

Don't be fooled by the neighbourhood and the slightly boring storefront! This is a fantastic restaurant with very friendly staff. He even wrapped up our left-overs so we could take them home!

A true gem. Not only is the food amazing, but the service is also very very warm and relaxed. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a pleasant, easy evening out.
