A first encounter with Ethiopian cuisine

This was my first encounter with Ethiopian cuisine, and a very positive one. The restaurant was reasonably busy for a Monday evening and the atmosphere friendly and relaxed. I only went for a main course that combines several dishes on a couple of flat breads, more like pancakes. All the dishes... read more

I just returned from East Africa and was craving some delicious food. And it most definitely satisfied my craving. Pretty close to the Ethiopian food I ate in Addis Ababa. Recommend giving it a shot. Yummy!

We were looking for an African restaurant to try while visiting Amsterdam. We heard there was a great Ethiopian restaurant around the corner from our rented apartment so we went there for a late lunch, early dinner. It was around 4:30 and we ordered 4 different vegetarian and 4 different beef stews with injera. Our waitress said the stews were... More

We went here for dinner yesterday and we're so glad we did! It's a tiny place and filled up quickly, the server was casual and smiling. The beginning of the service was a little slow but we live in New York so we are used to being served quickly and finishing dinner in an hour max. I don't know if... More

We went to this restaurant after our friends told us about it. We must really thank them because it was a good experience indeed. The restaurant is small an cozy - ok, some more space would be welcome - and the staff is very friendly! The menu is quite varied and there are many different combinations of food, including vegetarian... More

After visiting Ethiopia I can now say that in one of my favourite restaurants in Amsterdam, one gets fabulous, genuine Ethiopian cuisine at a very sharp price. The atmosphere is good, the Eritrean owner very friendly, and the banana beer, served in a wooden cup, is chilled down to the right temperature. Highly recommended!!

Simply amazing food! When we go we never order from the menu, we just tell the chef\owner to bring whatever he wants and it has never been a disappointment. The price is super reasonable. We have never paid more than 15E per person including drinks. The ambiance is very exotic, super casual. If you are in town and if you... More
