Outstanding, authentic ethiopian food

We barely booked a table in late afternoon for 9pm. When we came in it was already packed and getting crowded by the door with optimistic people who hoped for the table. It took some time but finally we got our table initially with 3 chairs and we were 6. Then we ordered veg and non veg... read more

A classic African place with large plates of food eaten by hand with the delicious pancake-like bread. The food quality and spice is quite solid. I definitely recommend a visit here.

I have eaten Ethiopian food many times before but this was my first time at this particular restaurant, which definitely ranks highly for serving authentic and well cooked food. Service can be a little slow so this not a place to go to for a quick meal. Going in a group of at least three allows you to sample a... More

First time in Ethiopian restaurant and the place is full of customers, but evrything goes smoothly including the dinner. The honey wine is a great companion for the tasty food picked by the fingers. Really friendly atmosphere, Maximum Respect!

The restaurant had misplaced our reservation, but luckily a table was still available on a Saturday night. Since very little English is spoken (next to none, to be more precise), we opted for a mixed platter for two - and were not disappointed. The food was plentiful, inexpensive, varied and tasty. We had four beers - I know they have... More

This was the first time we had ever had Ethiopian food and it was interesting and filling. The deal is that most of the dishes are served on a great big raised pancake -- a little spongey in texture -- and you eat by taking bits of the bread that is also brought to the table or the pancake itself...

I went here for the experience and because people seem to love it online. I love trying out new places and food from all over the world, so I was really excited about this restaurant. We ordered the mixed plate for 2 with vegetarian and meat "dishes". It's all just piles of stuff, really, some look like stew, some are... More

This was the first time for us to eat Ethiopian food, and we were not disappointed. Food tasted great, very filling and plenty of diversity in terms of taste. We are recommended a platter for 5 people and we were not disappointed. The food was fast to arrive at our table, no complaints here despite the place being busy. What... More

If you like to try a different eating culture this restaurant is recommendable. The food is good and priced very well, but you have to eat with the fingers. I visited the restaurant with a group of friends and it was a nice experience

As has already been said, Ethiopian food is slow food, and this was what we experienced so fair enough. Welcome was warm, coffee ceremony was lovely, popcorn and coffee were good. Ordered the mixed sharing platter for six, new to this cuisine so a new experience for us all. Fruit beer drunk out of a bowl was such a surprise... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
