“Wonderful food, even better atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

We've had some amazing Ethiopian food in New York City and Addis topped the list of our experiences so far. In just a few short trips to Dar we've managed to eat here 2 times and the food has been superb. The setting - an outside balcony, lit by shaded lights and natural candles - is perfectly done. I hesitate to write this review because it sounds too good to be true, and surely some folks' experiences with so-so service ring true with different waiters, but I'm duly impressed. Besides, they take visa.

“Great Ethiopan Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Addis in Dar is an excellent place to experience Ethiopean Cuisine. The ambience is great, and so is the service. The menu is extensive and has quite a few vegetarian options too.

“Wonderful for a laid back evening in Dar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

We have eaten here on three occasions, all very satisfying. While a "homey" atmosphere, the place is authentically Ethiopian, and it is lovely to sit out on the roof terrace on fine nights. The injera is excellent and the assortment of chicken, lamb and beef dishes each uniquely good. The combinations provide good value and variety for two people. Also a nice place to bring friends. At about half the price of some of Dar's most upscale restaurants, this is a good value. The coffee and tea ceremonies are special.

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I enjoyed the atmosphere here the most, on the roof top with the low tables and chairs and lanterns everywhere. It was just different and something fun. Our food was also really great, we had a great evening and would definitely return again.

“nice culinary experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

nice food and eating technic (as long you don't mind sticking your fingers in the food), not the most comfortable sitting for the spoiled around you, but definitely worth visiting.

PS - the white things looking like wet towels are for eating and not wiping hands :)
