There was no option to give this establishment no rating marks so I had to give it one but it doesn't deserve it. It is located underground in a metro station which is a bit strange but does make it easy to get to. The restaurant is filthy and the toilets are disgusting; the decor is sort of African working...

Underground in a subway station is not where you'd expect to find such a gem! It's pretty dark inside with dim lighting. The atmosphere is quite intimate and cosy. There is a lot of seating over two floors. The food is just fantastic and very cheap by Stockholm standards. Vegetarians are catered for too. They also have a decent cocktail... More

It's quite weird to have a restaurant in the metro underpass. I've passed this restaurant several times for two years but only tried it now. The interior is quite nice. The food is authentic African food. They have quite a lot of vegetarian dishes too. Probably the best choice is a mixed plate. Be prepared to eat with your hands!... More

This place is Eritrean rather than Ethiopian and is tricky to locate above ground - don't be fooled by the Kingsklippan street address on their website - it's actually down in the metro station. If you are not coming by the tunnelbana but are at street level on Kingsklippan, there is a lift (hiss) down to the metro station and... More

Ate ethiopian/eritrean zigni and zebhi and it was delicious! Nice staff and atmosphere. A bottle of really good south african dry wine and more food than we (2) could eat for only 390 SEK. Everybody should try this reataurant!

Seriously, if you don't around you'll miss this hidden jewel. Where is it? If you're exiting the train in Rådhuset subway station walk towards the "Kungsholmsgatan / Kungslippan / Parmmatargatan" sign. Follow that and you'll see the restaurant at the corner. OK. Now that you've found it, relax and enjoy the music and food. I had the "sampler" plate, which... More

It is not easy to find this restaurant if looking in the "usual" restaurant locations around the block, but when you walk into the subway station Rådhuset, suddenly you are in front of the place. While not very appealing from the outside, inside the restaurant you will find a pretty cozy place to dine and enjoy an evening with some... More

I found this Eritrean/Ethiopian restaurant randomly on a subway station in Stockholm... although restaurants and subway stations are eventually not the best combination, it looked appealing and I soon realized I had to come back and give it a go! The food is really good and there are many options for vegetarians. Prices are also very accessible! I confirmed with... More

At Jebena you will get a feel for a typical east African environment, if you haven't been to east Africa this is as close as it gets here in this north part of the world.
