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

Our tour group had dinner here one evening while in Addis Ababa. The restaurant is quite large, has an extensive buffet of traditional Ethiopian foods, and a floor show of singing and dancing acts showcasing local songs and dances. The food was varied and quite tasty. This seemed an "authentic" cultural restaurant insofar as half the attendees were Ethiopians. Unfortunately,... More

It came with various... More

We loved the traditional Ethiopian food buffet style. Great to go back and get your favorite dishes! The music and dancing were amazing and the security was a plus!

My wife and I were lucky being the guest of an important and influential Ethiopian man, but the food and entertainment were stunning. My first impression was that this would be a place for tourists (like something out of Hawaii) but all the guests save us were locals! The diversity of dishes was what one would have expected but the... More

We went to dinner, relatively early, at 2000 Habesha, not knowing what to expect. however, we ordered food, and then the local Ethiopians started to enter in groups, pretty much. However, there were two weddings that came to celebrate the evening here. The food was okay, but the atmosphere and the surroundings and the music was grand. People were happy,... More

The food was good and the entertainment was a slice of Ethiopian culture, unfortunately it doesn't offer much variety and goes on and on and on. A good way to experience a taste of Ethiopia.

An amazing cultural show with incredible shoulder dancing - we've seen a few of them around Ethiopia, but the guys at Habesha are the most professional energetic and impressive dancers of this unique style. The club is very spacious and the food is great. Enjoy yourself at Habesha 2000 - you'll never forget it !

Definitely touristy but still enjoyed it. Large tour groups come here and our hotel recommended it. Though definitely geared for tourists, we still enjoyed it. Good Ethiopian food and the cultural dances were good fun. Nice ambience as well.
