I have visited many restaurants in Addis, but nothing comes close to China Bar and Restaurant! Authentic Chinese food and great customer service!

Been here before, but this time we took a beef on a hot plate that really was very very tasty!!! Besides fish and rice. Staff is friendly, but not really conscious of the importance of the concept of "delighting the customer". Furthermore,it is at Meskell square, every taxi driver knows where it is.

It's been there for ever with pretty garish but fun decor although the overall atmosphere is a somewhat slow. Have been with a small handful of people as well as with a group of 40. They handled the latter very well with a dozen pre ordered dishes. The smaller group requesting a wider variety of dishes did not work quite... More

We visited here once whilst staying at the Ghion. Easy walk and provided an alternative dining option. Food was good - good size portions and tasty. Although more expensive for Addis the price was very reasonable compared to UK prices (as was most of Addis). Friendly waiter - although very quiet - would go back again.

Old Chinese restaurant in Addis Ababa. The food is still consistent and good. The devils spicy soup is worth a try. Not as spicy as expected but really tasty.

Enjoyed two visits to the China Bar Restaurant. The food was very good in each visit. As with most Chinese restaurants, the variety of choices is excellent...something to please every palate. There was a decent selection of wines and the service was very good. We would return there again.

The place has been around for ages and service is very good. There's a door man and the waiters do not loose any time escorting you to the table and noting your order. Interior is very nice with the ceiling covered in traditional Chinese wooden panels. Food is good by Addis standards and average by international standards. It's also quite... More

A travel group of 13 of us were staying at the Ghion Hotel for 2 nights. Since the food there was poor we all ate at the China Bar both nights. The food was excellent as was the service and value. We ate there for a third time at the end of our trip.

I spent a couple of months in Addis in 2012 and was craving Chinese food. My driver recommended this first-Chinese-in-Addis place in a great location. The servers were dressed in long, red silk gowns and were attentive. The food and bar menus were extensive. I ordered several dishes, but the servers brought me others. Surprise, the dishes were excellent, best... More
