I really enjoyed my dining experience here and it stands out as one of my favourite Zanzibar memories.
First of all, the restaurant decor and setting are just lovely. There is a wonderful outdoor terrace with flowers and plants. The indoor section is decorated in typical Ethiopian style. Very warm and inviting! The place is also very clean.
The food was really good. I had never tried Ethiopian cuisine before, so I took advantage of this opportunity. Everything tasted fresh and flavourful. I enjoyed it all and wish I could have eaten more :) At first, I thought the portions were somewhat small, but it was surprisingly filling. The price is reasonable. I would not call it cheap, but certainly not what I would call expensive.
The service was excellent! The young men working there could not have been more attentive or kind. And the lady who owns the place is very warm and engaging; you can tell that the restaurant is a labour of love to her native land.
Overall, I really liked it here and highly recommend trying it. It made me want to discover more about Ethiopia - and to try more of their cuisine! A very worthy choice while in Zanzibar.
