nothing fancy, but very good ethiopian food, good-sized portions, friendly service and a great roof-top setting that looks out over a lush garden.

I believe you cannot have the same Ethiopian experience another place. When you come to the door you start questioning yourself "what I am doing here?" but this changes around when you are the main floor. You have absolutely great Ethiopian music, and the traditional tables (photo). The way they serve coffee and food is absolutely unique for those who... More

I dined here recently with friends. We had a very nice evening but I wouldn't rate the restaurant the 4th best in DSM, mainly because the food isn't that good. The atmosphere is very nice - all candle lit on a balcony in the night air - and the experience of all tucking into a communal feast on a central... More

I have lived in Addis for 4 years and I can say the food there is really awesome, love injera with doro wat. the only problem I had with this place was the wait, we really waited a long time for our food, but it was nice when it did finally arrive.

We have been going to this restaurant for 12 years and have never been disappointed. When ever our family is arguing about where to have dinner this restaurant is the one that everyone can agree on. Great food, good service and wonderful ambience.

This restaurant has a big, nice terrace dining area with candle lights everywhere. Waiter was very friendly and polite. And most important: The food was great! One of the best meals I had during my visit in Tanzania. Definitely worth a visit!

I can't tell that I like the food. Food is supposed to be eaten by hands, but the pancake with which you're supposed to eat is sour and has an awful taste. Go there for tea and nice chat with friends, but eat elsewhere.

Even if Addis in Dar is not exactly authentic Ethiopian cuisine, it is constant for past 20 times over 10 years I must have been there. A good selection and fine taste. nice atmosphere also. I always liked it.

The restaurant is an open roof terrace with lovely atmospheric lighting. The food all comes in traditional Ethiopian fashion to a small round table where you eat off the flat bread with your hands. The food was all delicious, and the Ethiopian coffee was also lovely. One of my favourite restaurants in the world, let alone in Dar!

I really enjoy the occasional Ethiopian meal in Stockholm and heard good things about Addis so decided it was a good place to introduce my mum to the delights of berbere. The ambience was pretty special, the open roof-top was candle-lit with umbrellas hanging from the ceiling and cosy little stools, as well as a great selection of ethio-jazz playing... More
