Good food, good portions, bit pricey.

Arrived with no power in the building, but ate by candlelight. Food was good, good size portions, and was a bit more expensive than most places. However, with the good quality and portions, worth it. Will probably go back.

A short walk from the Ghion Hotel, this looks a little shabby from the outside but don't be fooled. It has a good menu and the food is tasty. I especially like the vegetable spring rolls. Chopsticks were provided in request for those who wanted them.

Good Chinese food, which was great as a change from local food. Very pleasant surroundings, clean and efficient. Bit pricier than average, but worth it.

Food is very good and service is definitely some of the best in Addis! We have eaten there many times as a family and always enjoy the meals as well as the friendly staff. Food is fairly priced.

I loved the sizzling tofu! Definitely a place I recommend to friends over and over again. Ideal for family and large group of friends dining. Needs a little more light though.

I enjoy Chinese food and I was in Addis on business so i went on Trip Advisor to look for a good restaurant. I went on a Monday night early evening around 7.45pm and was the only guest in the restaurant. The staff were obviously very attentive with only myself in the restaurant and the food was ok with standard... More

I have been traveling the past 6 weeks in Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya as a tourist. I arrived in Addis Ababa 4 days ago. Being from Singapore, I long from good Asian food. Thus, I searched for recommendations on tripadvisor. I visited China Bar and Restaurant for lunch yesterday. I ordered spring rolls as starter and 2 main courses... More

Very tasty Chinese food and lovely service. We first went here 12 years ago when we were living in Ethiopia and were very happy to be back. Decorated with red Chinese lanterns and soft lighting which gives it a cosy intimate atmosphere. Went back 2 nights in a row it was so good. Maybe some of the dishes are not... More

China Bar has been around for a long time (more than the 15 years we've lived in Addis Ababa) and is a reliable Chinese restaurant with friendly parking guards and wait staff. It is centrally located just off Meskel Square and near the Ghion Hotel and gardens. If it's daytime, take a walk in the lovely Ghion gardens before or... More
