No special reason to have a good dinner...or because it is Tuesday

Good selection of food. Traditional setting, vegetarian options- plenty. If you are a risk taker - raw beef - traditional styling of Kitfo available. Attentive wait staff - polite too. Plan to have a good dinner. Price is steep ,though. Traditional dance starts at 8:00pm. You can dance along... read more

The place for excellent, mostly spicy Ethiopian cuisine while watching cultural music and dance performance from the various ends of Ethiopia. A good and equally competent option to the mostly frequented Yob Abyssinia Restaurant.

Delicious traditional ethiopian food. Extremely tasty and great selection. We didn't get the buffet - we got the selection platter on the menu and shared it between 2 of us (more than enough, and they brought us some extra injera and sauces free of charge). It's in quite a nice setting though it does feel like a typical tourist trap... More

I didn't really rate this place. I was encouraged to have the buffet which was frustrating as other groups were able to order off non-existent menus. The food was passable and the entertainment was something to pass the time. This place seemed very much designed for business visitors who wouldn't either want to leave Addis or more charitably wouldn't get... More

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. The place is a fairly large hall and is within the Bole area. Tables are more for coffee / snack rather than for dinner and... More

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. There was a cultural show with singing and dancing that was very interesting. Great place to bring guests when in Addis... More
