I visited Tutu's Ethiopian table at south hill food festival with my 7 year old. The choice was limited as very popular and beautiful so tasty we both ate it all. I will definitely be visiting the cafe in Reading next time I'm there!

Some people seem to positively rave about this place, but I think that's just because it's so unique: I don't know of anywhere else one can get Ethiopian food in Reading. Problem is, this doesn't really make it great. Though they can certainly cook meat...More

A very friendly informal venue, the food is excellent, but not as spicy as other ethiopian meals I have had but highly recommended

Unpretentious setting with a limited menu but the food is really lovely and great both for vegetarians and meat lovers. Staff friendly and efficient.

I tried the chicken and lentils and my wife the chicken and cabbage. Both very nice and spicy from their mobile catering tent. Good value though the pancake served on is a bit bland hence 4 stars.

If you are into ethnic things and special, special food, this is the place for you. We went there for another pub, but it transformed into a nice mixture of food that we shared and drinks.

Went for the veggie platter, 3 dishes plus rice or Ethiopian pancake (I prefer rice) which is great value at £9.50 and a really tasty, wholesome meal. I went for the spicy red lentils, the spinach dish and potato/cabbage and this was the best meal...More

One of the few places that you can get Ethiopian food in England. Although not up to the standard of the brilliant injera in Ethiopia itself, the food was reasonably tasty. Staff were most friendly and a nice casual atmosphere in the cafe with live...More
