I'd been meaning to try Ethiopian for years, but just hadn't gotten around to it. So, being in Nairobi for a visit, I figured I'd give Abyssinia a shot since it seemed well reviewed here on TA. While the service is a bit slow, the food we ordered was delicious. Tip: if you've never had Ethiopian before, research it, which is what I did. I read a few things about the cuisine and which dishes might appeal to me and then ordered appropriately. Absolutely loved everything that was served, including the kitfo (like an Ethiopian beef tartare). If you're a coffee lover, a post-dinner pot of Ethiopian coffee is a must.
For me, a restaurant is 90% about the food, and Abyssinia delivers. Even if the service is not perfect and the place seems a wee bit run-down, I definitely recommend it.
