“Lovely setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This place has good Ethiopian food, and if you, like me, don't fancy the sponge-like pancake that comes with the food, you can always order rice instead. The setting is absolutely lovely with a huge balcony in quiet garden. very friendly staff. I will come here many times.

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Addis in Dar is one of the best restaurants I've ever had the pleasure of visiting.

Here's the low down: You're gonna be eating with your hands. No forks, no knives, clean em, wash em and get ready to roll that Njira.

Very unique (and fantastic) environment under tropical lush trees and the open African sky and then comes the good part: the food. Granted, you need to know what to order (Tibs, the lamb and the chicken) and you'll be amazed at the deliciousness of it all.

Stop reading and get over there now!

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

This place is a Dar failsafe. It is always strong and delivers good food time after time. Be ready to share as all food is communal. Ethiopian food is really a treat for people who have never tried it I suggest you start here. Avoid the prawns BTW everything else is awesome. Some people think it is pricey but I think it is good value on authentic food and atmosphere too!

Enjoy.
