“Very well done”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Great food, great atmosphere, but only OK service. Definitely a place to go. Note that if you order vegetables, you get a few vareity of lentils and bits of other veggies (cabbage, green beans, beets, carrots, etc.)

“A Palette for the Palate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We went here with friends who had been here before and had a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. We ordered several different dishes in order to try a variety of tastes and were VERY satisfied. The service was excellent and the ambiance pleasant and relaxing. Would recommend this place to anyone!

Habesha is a very good Ethiopian restaurant with outside sitting, service usually fast. I enjoy going there for quick lunches during the week.

“Authentic Ethiopian food, Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

I love Injera and the Ethiopian feast. After the usual expat haunts, I was starved for real African food and atmosphere. The restaurant looks like a residential bungalow after you pass the usual security guards. There are no tables but high woven baskets which hoold the large metal platters. Basic like a decent local guesthouse. Each of the curries was distinct and delicious. As a woman eating alone, they made me feel comfortable and brought my full meal within minutes. When the bill came, I couldn't believe my eyes. A feast with drinks and coffee for well under 20 dollars/francs. A wonderful conclusion to my Nairobi visit.
