Great fun!

A great way to spend an evening, the traditional food is nice (but expensive ), although it's more about the entertainment. The traditional singers and dancers are amazing! You will be entertained by local people dancing in styles from all over the country. Amazing.

Went there for dinner and enjoyed the entertainment that is all part of the experience. The food was very good and learning to eat with my fingers took some time.

Great music. Great dancers. No, really great dancers. Fun times. I like this place better than Yod. But similar. Better music at Yod, dancers at habesha. Can be super busy. Good food. Definitely start here with dinner then cab (150 birr) to Fendika on a Friday night. You want culture? Bam.

Have been to this place thrice, and found this comparable to the more popular yode. This place is less touristic and you find more locals and less faranjis. Food is good service average. Music is good though a big loud. Great place to party.

Went there last night after reading the reviews on this site. It was everything I expected. Ethiopian food was delicious. They played music and it was fun and relaxing. They had local dancers, men and women, so the place is not dull at any time. The prices were reasonable.

Firstly it's important to distinguish this restaurant from the Habesha Cultural Restaurant - the names are confusing. On the plane from Dubai I got talking with 2 passengers who both recommended the Habesha 2000 Cultural Restaurant. I turned up with 2 friends for an early habesha dinner to witness the band, and dancers going through rehearsals for that evenings performance.Our... More

We found out about this restaurant on TA and had intended to go there for a meal but were eventually taken there by our tour agent in Addis (without us telling him of our intention). Once we were there, we realised that this must be THE place where every tourist to Addis was to visit because it was full of... More

We've been to almost every cultural restaurant in Addis and we like 2000 the best - mainly for the size. It's smaller than most so it's not as overwhelming as some of the others. Great Bar as well! Music and dancers are fun and friendly. Food is good and fast. A fun place to spend an evening -- even with... More
