This was our first experience with Ethiopian food, so we ordered the large platter of different foods- kind of like a sample platter. It was great. I also had the pumpkin soup, which was incredible. It seems as though this is a small, family owned and operated business. The service was great, and I am happy to say that the... More

First time me and the family have eaten Ethiopian food, so didn't know what to expect. Staff were very friendly and happy to explain what was on the menu. A high chair was provided for our 10-month old. All the food comes on one large dish on top of a pancake, with extra pancakes provided, and was all very tasty.... More

I went to this place after visiting another African restaurant right down the street from them. Being in town on business, I was alone - and the other African restaurant didn't want to sit me. I was shocked - and didn't understand. Since there were no other black folks seated there, I assumed that had something to do with it... More

Two People, Both (effectively) vegetarian, One Table. One simple order: "Feed Us!" This was translated into the Vegetarian Sampler (or something along those lines) which is a huge plate covered with Injura (buckwheat pancakes, gallettes, something along those lines) and very beautifully presented heaps of seven different vegetable dishes. and because there were two of us, there were two samples...

If you are in to social eating - I mean eating and tasting different styles of food with friends, family, co-workers, than this is the place for you. Be warned it will normally be spicy but you will have an experience on your tongue like dancing fairies with fire and pitch forks. The service is brilliant, owned and operating by... More

Was wandering down Overtoom on a cold, wet, wintry Saturday night, rather regretting ignoring the warning on here that restaurants close early in the Netherlands, when I saw the warm, inviting lights inside this restaurant. I was tempted in by the range of vegetarian options and, even though it was 10 pm, I was welcomed warmly and told it was... More

When I entered the restaurant I was unsure since it was empty on a Thursday night (which is usually not a good sign!). However I had a good surprise. It was the first time I tried Ethiopian food and it was very good! Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the dishes, but we ordered two diffrent ones and ended... More

Had visited this family owned restaurant with my friends on our 4 day stay in Amsterdam and found the hospitality way beyond comprehension unlike most ethiopian restaurants I have been to . The food is none to second in terms of its quality for the price u pay. besides when it comes to Ethiopian food, for me what counts most... More

How do you eat Ethiopian fare? The meat was spicy, lentils were the specialties, and at the end you get home-roasted Ethiopian coffee on the house. Down-to-earth atmosphere, good value.

This small ground floor restaurant is situated on a main road near to Vondel Park. My husband and I enjoyed a delicious, totally different (to us) , inexpensive meal, shared on a platter of casseroled lamb and a vegetarian meal, eaten with engeer (a type of pancake). Cutlery was also provided. A range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks were available... More
