A really nice place for something different and a really nice surprise. Look past the entrance and get upstairs for really good Ethiopian food. Ok it's not a glamorous location but if you want to experience African food at very cheap prices I would recommend.

Having read the reviews and fancying something different decided to check it out. Popped in earlier in the day to check whether we needed to book but the chap behind the bar said no need as it was unlikely to be busy, when we got there a few hours later it was really busy and the same guy had kindly...

Based on the reviews on here we decided to give this a go on Saturday night . You get a lovely warm welcome and the restaurant prices are exceptionally reasonable . However we found the chicken dish to be very spicy and there was not a lot of meat in the dish - to be fair the menu does point... More

If you're looking for a change from the usual, head for this place. Amid the numerous Indian, Chinese and Thai restaurants in Manchester, there is a cosy, friendly and family-run cafe above a kebab shop in the middle of the Village. You'll get a warm welcome, very reasonable prices, and a very different cuisine. I think it's the only Ethiopian... More

My friends and I visited Habesha last Friday evening. The restaurant is located at the top end of Sackville Street nearest to Portland St which made it handy to park at the nearby car park (£4.00 after 6pm). There are two doors to the pace.. one sie is the take away the other is the entrance to the restaurant.. go... More

This place looks like a dive outside but once you ascend the spiral staircase you enter a wonderful restaurant that is full of charm, warm atmosphere and most importantly great food! This instantly became one of my favourite places to eat in Manchester. The food came out quickly, tasted wonderful and unique. Lovers of curry should come here as some... More

Having spent time in Ethiopia this took me back. Genuine Ethiopian food, good service and a great atmosphere. Not quite 5 stars but close.

This little Restuarant hidden above a kebab shop in Manchester's busiest areas is amazing. This is the second time I have been and I will be back. It is a unique experience eating with your hands (as a South African I llove this ) and the flavours have not been westernised giving your taste buds a new and amazing experience.... More
