We went to that restaurant knowing nothing about Ethiopian food (and I have to admit, also thinking that it wouldn't be too different than Tanzanian food). It was the best restaurant I went to in Tanzania. The food, the staff, the atmosphere, everything was excellent. I couldn't recommend it enough. It is not just a restaurant where you eat, it... More

The restaurant was nicely decorated in an elegant Ethiopian style which really contributed to a nice atmosphere. I was there with some friends and we really had a good evening. I can recommend the mixed plats that enable you to share and try many dishes.

I'd heard about Addis in Dar, but just visited on an impulse and I'll certainly be back again. The restaurant is on an outside terrace on the first floor with wonderful atmospheric lighting from many candles and the lights shaded by colourful umbrellas! The tables are traditional Ethiopian woven tables with a tray in the middle in which the food... More

What an incredible way to spend an evening in Dar. Amazing traditional Ethiopian cuisine served on traditional tables, creating an incredible atmosphere whether you're there with friends or a significant other. Topped off with good service and excellent Ethiopian coffee.

I don't get to Dar as much as I'd like, but it is an absolute requirement that I go to Addis when I'm in town. Fantastic food!
