Great food but take cash

Had a delicious meal here. Very authentic Ethiopian. Just be aware they don't take credit cards. We werent aware of this until the bill arrived and only just had enough cash.

If you are in Amsterdam you must try to eat here! Absolutely delicious. We arrived around 6:45 and no reservation but the lovely guy serving made up a spot for us in the window. After reading the reviews we were happy with this. We tried the T'edj which was lovely and refreshing, although seemed to have a bit of kick.... More

Walking distance from where I stayed, Kilimanjaro offers authentic food from all over Africa. I arrived just before 6 pm midweek to learn there were only a couple of reserved tables and was able to be seated immediately. (Within the hour, 3/4 of the tables were full.) A South African cabernet paired with their African salad started my meal off... More

We arrived at about 8pm on a Friday evening and managed to get the last unreserved table (there are only 6 or 7 tables in the place). Food was delicious and the portions generous, the service was a little slow, but this may have been as there were only 2 members of staff (the other cook was in Ethiopia buying... More

This is my favorite restaurant in all of Amsterdam for 5 years. Very inconspicuous and welcoming with amazing food and friendly service. The menu is refreshed frequently but everything is prepared with care and attention and one cannot choose wrong. Highly recommended.

This restaurant has a very homely feel and was very busy with locals but they managed to fit us in. Would recommend a booking as many people were turned away. Servings were huge and food was well cooked and delicious! A great introduction to Ethiopian food- highly recommended!

There are some exotic meats on the menu, like antelope and crocodile, and the classic pancake and goo combination is great. Looks run-down on the inside, but this somehow helps the atmosphere. Very friendly staff, possibly family-run.

We really like Ethiopian food so this was a real find. Lovely tasty piles of food traditionally served on injera. Service was friendly and efficient and all very reasonably priced. What else needs to be said.
