Great food and great customer service. The owners and their staff are great. Definitely will go back in my next trip to Paris. It definitely exceeds expectations of enjoying Ethiopian food outside of Ethiopia. Keep up the good work.

I've never eaten Ethiopian food before but was assured this was one of the best in Paris. We had some sort of sample plate with 8 or so different dishes. I couldn't say any of them impressed. I was told to watch out for the spicy ones but at the end I couldn't say any stood out. They reminded me... More

Instead of leaving the girls at the hotel and finding a nice romantic restaurant during our few days in Paris, we decided to go out as a family to this Ethiopian restaurant. We are huge fans of Ethiopian food and Menelik did not disappoint. All of us found something to love on the plate, from our picky 7 year old... More

We were very disappointed with our experience at Menelik last day.Customer service was the worst we had ever encountered. The restaurant well decorated inside but the food is so bad if you know about ethiopian food then don't even try it, because it's not ethiopian food test at all.if there's a rate more than terrible I will say.

I arrive there for dinner with an empty stomach, after ordering need about 50mns to wait. My boyfriend almost to die for starving of waiting for the food. The food was amazing, it comes with the big big big plate , actually order just one is enough, others on the menu is just an extra food to add on that... More

I ate there with my girlfriend, we had a very nice evening and enjoyed the food very much: I had a meat tartare while she got the vegetarian sauces, which we ate together with the nice egg bread. The wine was good, the price fair and the atmosphere nice.

We came because of its reputation as the best Ethiopian food in Paris, and we weren't disappointed. The vegetarian plate was outstanding, and good value considering the generous portion size. Very friendly and helpful staff too.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Menelik last night. The injera was cold, not fresh and very dry, and given the speed at which our dinner arrived, it was obviously prepared by "chef Mike" (as in microwave). The staff had clearly taken on Parisian airs - aloof and indifferent even though we were the only people in the... More

First, I should probably disclose that this was only my second time ever eating Ethiopian food, so I'm not an expert. I really enjoyed it the first time, and I like restaurant menelik even more than the first place! There is so much food and everything tastes wonderful. I'm sure even picky eaters would really enjoy the many sauces and... More

Good food and very good service as well. I recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for good food in Paris in the Brochant area.
