“Yummy and so accommodating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

The staff are so accommodating and friendly. We went there with 6 kids aged 1-10 (I.e. chaos) and they were so great about it all. The food was delicious and well priced. Love coming to this restaurant - feels like coming home!

“Tasty food, friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

Had a great time at Ethiopia down under tonight.
Highly recommend the platters. Every dish was delicious, particularly the spicy beef. All the dishes were explained to us and the owner sought feedback at the end of our visit and made us feel really welcome
The service was quick and friendly and all the staff paid great attention to our two children, while giving us space to enjoy ourselves.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Yes the food is quite tasty and quite good value. Service was efficient and friendly. The place itself is nothing special, but it doesn't try to be either, and on our night there was quite an "interesting" family there - we thought the children were loud until we heard their parents! Back to the restaurant itself, it does seem to have an authentic menu so maybe try here for something different to all the other places in the suburbs that seem to have the same old style of food.

“My favourite in Canberra.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

What can I say, I'm a local who pretty much lives at this place. The food is great with loads of flavour and the staff are wonderful.

Try it out for yourself...

“Good value, child friendly, go the coconut beef curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We selected the $22 (per person) mosab sharing platter. We were hungry and it was a little light on. The food was very good. We brought our baby and the place had heaps of kids that night. The coconut beef curry was the better of the selected dishes.
