“Good food, nice basement in Sechron”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2012

The food is among the best Ethiopian restaurants in GVA. The ratio price:quality is not bad but used to be better. However, the fact that even mid-week is full in the hidden location makes no wonder about overall quality.

“Good food to share, nice atmosphere, ethiopian beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

I like east-african food and the way it is served, so this restaurant was definitely one to try. And indeed, it was exactly how I imagined it to be. Good atmosphere and the food was how I expected it. A big plate from which we all could grab food with our hands. The ethiopian beer is also very good. I definitely will come back here.

“Good food, Friday night: Ethiopian Dance + little nightclub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

The food is decent and the Ethiopian beer is delicious (although a bit expensive - but what's not expensive in Geneva?). They do have performances on Friday night (ethic dance), which is quite entertaining when going with a group of friends. The funny thing is, the restaurant transform itself into a little nightclub around midnight every Friday. It always starts with the Ethiopian dance and people just join in. Then later on, they would start playing other music as well. If you want a quiet and romantic dinner, definitely avoid Friday. Overall, a fun place with decent food. Reservation highly recommended as the place gets very crowded sometimes.

“The best samosas I've ever tasted”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

This place has wonderful food, and an informal, comfortable atmosphere, including a special space with benches and cushions and warm colors. House red wine is very good. Apart from the special space the decor is plain, but the food more than compensates for this.
