The philosophy behind this beautiful restaurant in Neukölln combines the qualities of a modern restaurant with those of a Berlin corner pub. The two young creative Berlin chefs Martin Müller & Kristof Mulack unite modern German cuisine with traditional classics. Everything is designed in such a way that this claim can be implemented in the best possible way. The concept consists of three parts and includes 3 to 5 course menu at the counter and Berlin classics with a familiar atmosphere at the tables. Well, AND it is the most delicious cuisine I was allowed to enjoy for a long time!

Grab a Bulgogi BBQ plate at Mmaah and take it away for a picnic at the Tempelhofer Field in Neukölln. If you go to the Mmaah at Kiehlufer, you can picnic on the bridge of the canal (see pic). It is a perfect spot for a lunch break.

The restaurant always has a relaxed atmosphere. Most of the guests live around the corner in Neukölln and stop by because they love the Italian food and, of course, the wine and beer on tap. My favorite red wine is Nero d’Avola. Besides the food the restaurant is really nice to sit down and get a sense of Neukölln, as the audience is a cultural mix of international guests and established Berliners.

Important side note:
Coda Berlin is my dream come true: a dessert bar in Neukölln Berlin. If you like desserts, this is the place to be! I normally eat dinner to get an dessert afterwards, at this "restaurant" I don’t have to wait ;).
It's not a restaurant, but a unique bar with delicious desserts, so I have to recommend a visit (additionally to my Top 5 restaurants in Neukölln), after dinner or instead!
