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

This is somewhere you'd come simply to get a taste of traditional ethiopian cusine, but with the addition of dancing (you'll probably get up and have a go yourself!) and music. If you're on the kitfo, make sure you have it "lab lab" (slightly cooked) - most people can't handle raw meat!

This is a great place to go for dinner early in your trip. We were thoroughly charmed by the musicians and dancers - be prepared to get out of your seat and dance with them as they come out to the crowd! The food was delicious, but we made the mistake of ordering Ethiopian sweet red wine. Don't be afraid... More

Our guide took us to this restaurant on our first night in Addis for a truly cultural experience of the food and entertainment. The authentic injera that is the main dish of Ethiopia is offered here for everyone to try a taste of. The entertainment is wonderful. Enjoy!

Our hotel recommended that we eat one dinner at this restaurant to experience local food and culture at its finest. Unabashedly a "tourist joint", this place really does offer guests a good time with local bands and dancers, and serves up an excellent buffet of local foods. It was expensive, but I felt it was worth it. I don't see... More
