Delicious Food - Excellent Value!

A friend took me to this restaurant to try something different - and it definitely was different! The restaurant itself is not the most trendy but the food certainly makes up for it. We arrived at 6pm and were the only people in the restaurant, 10 minutes later it started filling up and it was... read more

Best, authentic Ethiopian food outside the land of the Habesha. I first went upon returning from a business trip to Addis Ababa, and have been back four times with different people. All have been pleasantly surprised by Ethiopian cuisine if they've had no experience of it before. If you like curry, you'll love it - it's quite different, but a... More

We were pleased to see that there was an Ethiopian restaurant near our hotel, since that is a cuisine that we can't get at home (Santa Fe NM). Addis did not disappoint. The food was tasty, well spiced, and served in the traditional manner, on a tray covered with injira bread. We washed it down with Ethiopian beer. The waitress... More

Came here with an Eritrean friend after months of him praising their food, and we were not disappointed. The food was absolutely delicious (I had one of the Vegetarian main dished £15, but it was the dearest on the menu) and left us totally stuffed. Service was very friendly and attentive. Would highly recommend it.

Worth a visit, cheap and filling but the food will not blow you away. Eat with your hands and enjoy some different sorts of curries. Service is left to be desired, but food comes out quickly.
