Something special

This was surely an experience, I had never tasted ethiopian food before so I was not sure what I was getting into but it was really worth it. The food was exotic and tasty but the best part of the evening was the "coffee ritual", you'll see :)

Great, interesting food and a very friendly place. The service was amateur but very willing and extremely nice. We had the Minilik special which is safe to recommend.

Excellent Ethiopian food, they´ve toned down the sourness of the injera to suit local tastes and the food was delicious! Very cozy atmosphere and of course, they performed the Ethiopian coffee ceremony and some guests from the restaurant gathered around, shared some coffee and stories, very unusual for Iceland! Had a wonderful time. If you are not accustomed to Ethiopian... More

We had lunch here and really enjoyed it. The other clients were all American, we didn't see any locals here. The staff were wonderful and attentive, the food was genuine Ethiopian and very tasty. A nice change from the usual and we'd recommend it.

I liked the idea of getting Ethiopian and I was excited about the place. Food was interesting and delicious specially injera or that fermented bread they eat everything with. I liked the fact that you can get a ritual coffee ceremony for a little bit more money. The one thing I disliked about the place was the athmosphere. The waiters... More

A nice and friendly place in kind of the "middle of nowhere" in business district of Kopavogur, a part of the Reykjavik area. We had platters of different food to taste and as it goes we liked some more than other. I was expecting more spicy food but they were all very mild. They are very keen on introduce Ethiopian...

Want to try something different? I went with work colleagues for lunch. It's a very nice place. The food was perhaps not exactly for me but I'm very glad I tried. Great atmosphere and service and you'll have to try the traditional coffee ceremony!

Verry good food, a verry nice and friendly place. We did go there under the week and we where the only visitors. The owner did take time for us and answers all our questions. The price was fine, speacally fore icelandic levels.

As a big fan of exotic cuisines and Ethiopia in general, I had been looking forward to visiting Minilik. As I entered the restaurant for a co-worker's birthday party, I was welcomed with a big and generous Ethiopian smile. I probably read the menu a dozen times before I was ready to make an order, and I ordered a chicken... More
