We came because of its reputation as the best Ethiopian food in Paris, and we weren't disappointed. The vegetarian plate was outstanding, and good value considering the generous portion size. Very friendly and helpful staff too.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Menelik last night. The injera was cold, not fresh and very dry, and given the speed at which our dinner arrived, it was obviously prepared by "chef Mike" (as in microwave). The staff had clearly taken on Parisian airs - aloof and indifferent even though we were the only people in the... More

First, I should probably disclose that this was only my second time ever eating Ethiopian food, so I'm not an expert. I really enjoyed it the first time, and I like restaurant menelik even more than the first place! There is so much food and everything tastes wonderful. I'm sure even picky eaters would really enjoy the many sauces and... More

It was our wedding anniversary and I had researched the restaurant we wanted to visit whilst on our trip to Paris. We decided on Menelik buit we left without eating. We were a little early and the first customers there. In the bar area there were three men as well as the owner/manager. At first he ignored us, then gave... More

First time in front of Ethiopian food and a pleasing experience it was too; friendly staff, complimentary drink on arrival, and coffee at the end; food was delicious, and very different. Cost very reasonable

Am at the restaurant right now... We have had Ethiopian at other restaurants in SF bay area in the US. Had a vegetarian combo.. And the varieties are not much. Portion size is too little for the price too. All the meat eaters got huge platters ! Taste is pretty average :-/ We miss Zeni ethiopian restaurant in San Jose... More

The ambiance is very authentic, I love to eat with the hands, it give a family like dimension and a cosy atmosphere. It is not “high gastronomy” and the food can get a bit boring and heavy but it is unexpansive and I enjoyed the meal. Worth trying.

This is one of the best rated restaurant in this neighborhood so we choose to go to this place for dinner with a group of friend. Food was good, Injera was tasty and mouthful. The food is somehow adjusted to French taste otherwise it could have been little more spicy as you might taste in Addis Ababa. We truly enjoyed... More
