Do not miss this Ethiopian Restaurant-night club

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... read more

I wasin Addis on business and decided to try out some Ethiopian food. Habesha has a lovely ambience with its exotic Ethiopan interior decor and furnishing. As one enters the restaurant yo are greeted by the wonderful aroma of Ethiopian coffe breiwing on charcoal stoves. I ordered traditional Ethiopian Injera for lunch. It was just fantastic! 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

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.

I have been twice to the place and I really preferred the day when people in the restaurant were mainly Ethiopians. The ambiance was different. Good music from different Ethiopian ethnic groups..

We really enjoyed the cultural show here. The head and shoulder shaking done in traditional Ethiopian dances are really incredible. And these dancers hardly took a break. It was a nice atmosphere and looked to be very popular with the local residents. Food was very good, too.

If you are visiting Addis Ababa and are looking for a fun night, this place is a great option. We expected a typical tourist song/dance show, but to our surprise over half the guests were locals. Yeah, there were some tourists there but almost every nice restaurant in town will likely have them. We had a good time here and... More
