I'd fallen in love with the Omo before the pandemic, and of course I keep getting the ToGo during the lockdown regularly, cause it Is just not the food that can be substituted by home cooking, as it might be an option for some other...types of dishes. For the pre-covid eating in, I absolutely love the atmosphere of the family run restaurant, very heart warming treatment of guests (don't want to label it as a service, because it is a very warmly atmosphere in there) and of course the delicious food that is very various for vegetarians and vegan in all three stages (appetisers, main dishes and desserts). The best thing, in my opinion, is the correlation between price and quality that makes Omo perfectly suitable for a casual dinner with friends on a regular day as well as for a special occasion, too, while it is very affordable for most of the people, the dishes can be shared and the food is nothing what one could make at home (unless they are native to this cousin, of course). For the ToGo during the lockdown I appreciate the environmental friendly packaging and the just-in-time-ready-to-be-picked approach at the confirmed time, so that the food is still warm and tasty.More

My friend and I decided to go eat and we spontaneously walked by the Omo. The food was really good and the staff was friendly. Would go again.

I have been three times to Cafe Omo, because apparently I have too short a memory, or too much optimism. All three times the injera is just... wrong. Cold, non-elastic, doesn't taste of teff flour or sourdough. Super disappointing. The worst visit the whole place...smelled of bleach (pre-covid no less) which while comforting that they seem to keep things clean, is not the best smell for stimulating appetite. The food is OK, different dishes with different levels of success. Also, although they claim to accept cards for payment, on all three occasions they said AFTER the meal that the machine was broken and we could only pay with cash... which required a 20 minute round-trip walk to the distant bank-o-mat. on the plus side, they are friendly, and it's a cozy social kind of place.More

The food was fine. We all liked trying a new type of food, but I don’t think we enjoyed it so much that we will be going back. The restaurant does not accept credit cards but they do take the Giro card. The menu was...written in English, German and another language (Ethiopian?) The restaurant was not busy, when we arrived there was one other couple there. Our group of three were sat at a very small table for two. We pulled another small table over to accommodate the third person but the server told us we could not use the second table. Turns out everyone shares from one large bowl. The service was good, the food didn’t take too long and we enjoyed trying a new type of food.More

Café Omo was a great place to go for a change in seasoning....although we cannot say how authentic it is( it is one of our first experiences in this type of food) we loved it. Besides, it is a family business where you can feel...they are doing a great job: to bring part of their culture to us. The restaurant has some tables outside which we enjoyed in a warm September night.More

We decided to visit new places once a month and this time we went to Omo. The atmosphere was more or less authentic, but still with a lot of European stuff. I expected more. The dishes were served on the metal plates with some kind...of "pan cakes" which was new and interesting. The waiter was great, kind and helping. There were only 3 tables occupied, two more were free, and the other were reserved (it didn't seem that many would come, but I can't judge. We were there till 20 pm). We got our main course ready in 20 minutes, the starters in 10, the tee was served right away. We didn't like the food. Not for the price. The portion of mixed starters for 2 cost 12 euros and is rather for one person. I wonder what one person could get. Main dishes cost between 12 and 18 euros for one, which would be ok, but you don't get enough. You get some sauce (one or several different), a little bit of meat and many sour pan cakes, which make the most of the dish. They were not tasty to us, but this is too subjective. We also ordered typical tee: one was black rooibos (which was good black tee) and the other with thymian (which was just some warm water with a lit bit of taste). It cost us 4 euros for each. Well, we would definitely not go there one more time.More

The place is not rather small but we were surprised to see it was very crowded. The food and the Ethiopian beer are very peculiar and tasty. It is not cheap but the food is good and very different. Despite the amount of bread, you...don't end up feeling bloated. We will come back for sure.More
