Very cultural

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

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!
