Description: Four Seasons restaurant is one 4/years old, a good option for locals and expatriates wanting a different dining scene in Addis Ababa. The menu offers authentic Japanese cuisine, as one of the owner/partner is also the Chef, he is Pakistani, but trained in the refinements of Japanese cooking making his menu authentic Japanese taste. The is no parking, we parked along the road infront of the restaurant, The restaurant is clean, service staff polite and speaks English, and ample space for families, group of friends and children. A good place to hang out.

While the food is pretty good here, the slow service and lack of authentic food representation wouldn't let me. While the soup that they call Tom Yam Goong is tasty, it certainly isn't what it states with using chicken and coconut milk - more like Tom Khai Kai. The wine/alcohol choices are limited and not great. The positive is that... More

We enjoyed the diner at Four Seasons for sure. Springrolls not special, shrimps good. I had the teriyaki variety. The place is nice with small rooms for private diner. Staff professional. The price however is quite high....especially in comparison to local prices...

After 4 month of traveling in Africa, eating a good sushi is very refreshing! The food and service is very good, BUT not much variety for vegetarians..! And they have very wired opening hours..!

Meeting up with a bunch of colleagues we decided to visit this lovely restaurant as a refreshing change from Ethiopian fare. The spring rolls and teriyaki chicken starters were delicious and the Thai green and red curries were deliciously flavoured though perhaps a little on the mild side for my preference. Next time I will ask for a little more... More

As expats living and working in the north of Ethiopia, being in Addis Ababa means eating food from home. This restaurant fulfilled this requirement completely. We like to eat Thai in our home country and eating here was like eating at our home. We had the spring rolls and Pad Thai and Curry with Coconut and Prawns. The prices are... More

We went to the Four Seasons with ambitions to please everyone in our party, with a selection of Thai, Japanese and Pakistani food. Perhaps since one of the previous reviews the Pakistani food has been removed from the menu. That was disappointing. Service was a bit slow, but then, as everything is freshly made, we didn't mind the wait. The... More

The restaurant tries to cover much of Asia, with separate pages in the menu for Japanese, Thai, and Pakistani cuisine. Everything was tasty and freshly prepared, but we had to wait over an hour for our food. Portions are small, so order accordingly. Also, be clear about how spicy you want the food to be.
