Rohobot was our first foray into Ethiopian food and we were not disappointed. We shared the "Meat Lover's Special" and really enjoyed it. I would recommend that dish in particular again. The ambiance was nice. We sat outside, with a nice breeze. We went on a weekday night and we were the only couple there for awhile, making it a... More

It's not really a restaurant you would expect to find in ex. Europe. It's located next to the owners house and consists of some green small chairs and tables, located outside under a small roof. I think we expected to find a 'real' western-like restaurant. But the food and the service was great here. It's not fancy, but it's a... More

I didn't even really think Ethiopian food was that great until I ate here. Now I'm in the love. The staff is friendly and the place in clean and it's on a cute little porch. I went on an Ethiopian food binge after eating here, trying other restaurants in Dar, but none compare to this place. Sure there are prettier,... More

I just love this restaurant! It's one of the best ethiopian restaurants I've been to. The food is absolutely delicious, the atmosphere relaxed. It's a nice place to go to with kids too. We've been there several times and will definitely go back! See also my review on: http://azebrasdream.com/2014/03/21/rohobot/

Nice informal (has a good local feel to it) restaurant with an amazing menu, good welcoming service and cozy atmosphere. Very nice to go with a group of friends since they have combined menus as well. One of the best Ethiopian restaurants I have encountered which is very well priced for what you get! Important note: the restaurant has recently... More

Good menu with lots of options of dishes to share. Nice selection at reasonable prices. The restaurant has moved location in the last couple of weeks so make certain you know the correct address.

In a modest setting they lay out a wonderful meal. Great njera, the tibs are fabulous, and of course the veg offerings are plentiful. Our 'go-to' place for Ethiopian food in Dar! Bring your own containers as we have done, and you have great take-away.

Nothing fancy here - diners sit in a small garden, hunched around tables. But the food is great and you eat Ethiopian style - wots are poured onto the communal dish with extra rolls of injera.
