As a family we love this restaurant! My 2 young daughters rate it as their favourite restaurant in Dar Es Salaam because you can eat with your fingers! The staff are really helpful, I remember the first time we went there we needed help with the menu and it was all delicious and one of our cheapest meals out too!... More

This place is beautiful, if you want to impress your guest with a magical atmosphere this is the place. I'm not in love with Ethiopian food but I'll always come back for a beautiful dinner in this restaurant.

The compound, dinning tables and clothes are quite Ethiopian. The dishes are fine except the Injera (most probably baked from rice while the authentic one is made from teff). The traditional structures and Amharic alphabet on the walls gave a good face of 'Ethiopian' of the place. The hospitality needs to be more Ethiopian.

I always take visitors to this restuarant on the last day of their holidays. The food staff and ambience are a perfect Kwaheri (goodbye) to Tanzania

It is great place for habesha food lovers. I felt as if I am home, the taste is good. I enjoyed the food to the last gursha. My Tanzanian friends also enjoyed the enjera and the different wot. The place filled with a lot of Ethiopian Orthodox church staff unlike restaurants in Addis Ababa, but I enjoyed. The service was... More

Friendly staff and authentic Ethiopian food served on tet. An acquired taste for sure, some very spicy things, order a selection of different things. Outside eating environment very nice. Bit of a trek to get to from down town.
