We've had Ethiopian food before, and we thought this place was pretty good. We had chicken with tomato and three vege dishes - lentils, spinach, mixed, and they were all complex and tasty although perhaps the chicken was a bit oily. The house white was...More

So yeah, it's an ethiopian restaurant. You know the drill - "combo plate" + injera + beers. That said, the place is *comfortable* - it's the kind of place where can chill/hang-out for a while pre-and-post meal, and they're quite ok with it. The service...More

中午行經Harambe Ethiopian,正因爲十分肚餓,未具清楚是什麼菜式,二話不說入餐廳坐下,了解後知道是從未嚐過的非洲菜式,幸好waitress介紹,點了Harambie salad & Chef 's choice combination,salad 有醋汁混辣汁,主要是菜,沒有其他配料,味道一般,Chef's choice combination 包含4件injera bread(用grain蒸製),碟上有9款不同小堆的食物,有些是咖哩雞、咖哩牛肉、煑豆、菜等等,食物底有一大片injera bread,已經吸收咖哩汁及香料味,可一同吃,好好味,尤為喜歡injera bread不油不飽滯。

We had a vegetarian platter. Portions food seemed a bit chintzy and most of the platter items were not memorable. The honey wine had a weird after taste, so I drank only a couple of sips. Service was mediocre. I had to ask staff to...More

Of the many Ethiopian restaurants in this area, our neighbourhood, this is our favorite. Ask for their honey wine and chef's recommendations for sharing plate. On a recent visit they recommended that we try the fish stew along with our shared variety and it was...More

Commercial Drive
Commercial Drive, also called "The Drive," comprises
of twelve sauntering blocks of modest and unfussy
counter-culture. Straddling the line between
sophisticated and unadorned, it is favoured by
students, artists, writers, designers, and start-ups,
and suffused throughout with a healthy off-beat
counter-culture. The kind of neighbourhood which
well-springs thought-revolutions and has the odd bit
