Great experience

This is a mix of a restaurant and cultural show. I am not sure if they do the show every night but the night we were there it was an Ethiopian buffet with dishes sure to please every palate.

We were taken here on our last night of a group tour. This seems to be the same for all groups. The food on the buffet was awful with no labels as to what it was supposed to be. The music was so loud it was impossible to have a conversation, so we all just sat there looking at each... More

Attended dinner and show event on a Friday night. Local food was OK but not much different from what you can find at other local restaurants. I was invited and therefore cannot comment on price.

Being right next to our office in addis Ababa, we never miss a chance to visit habesha 2000. Probably the best option for those who want to try local cuisine.

Space - critical factor! And this place gets a 10 because it does not feel crowded. Food is great - buffets are rich in both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. The dancers are also quite entertaining. The random wedding ceremonies (volunteers from the guests) are always a fun feat!

Food is average with a good choice of veggies and traditional food such as dorot or kitty. The decor is traditional.
