I'd hoped for more - portions OK but to us everything tasted rather blandly similar (had a combination plate with meat and vegetarian components). The sour injera (in my opinion) really does beg some spice to set it off - sadly this was not forthcoming. Service, however, was friendly and efficient. _

I was living in Berlin for a few months last winter. It is a multicultural city with a lot of different choices of culinary delights. However, I did not have any opportunity to try any African cuisines - until I found Bejte Ethiopian Restaurant. It is in a nice side street in Schoenberg, just off the main road with U-Bahn... More

So while in Berlin, I got to take a culinary journey to Ethiopia. Seriously such flavorful food! Loved the banana beer as well. Wish I could find this back in the states. They did a nice coffee ceremony during dinner and we got a cup of the coffee at the end of the meal. It was nice to see. Would... More

It was my first Ethiopian gastronomic experience, so I can't really tell how authentic it was. The food was extremely delicious though. The staff was very friendly, however they were a bit slow and had to be asked for the bill 3 times until we got up and went to the counter after 30 minutes of waiting and managed to... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the wonderful service. You can see that this family restaurant is run with passion and love. The food is very tasty and the presentation is wonderful. The portions are very healthy and the ambiance is very cozy. A must visit if you like Ethiopian food.

It was the first time ever I tried some Ethiopian food, and it was a very positive one. The grilled lamb was really tastefull. Had to get used to eating with my hands, but this worked very well for the food. Definitely recommend going here for a nice evening.

We barely booked a table in late afternoon for 9pm. When we came in it was already packed and getting crowded by the door with optimistic people who hoped for the table. It took some time but finally we got our table initially with 3 chairs and we were 6. Then we ordered veg and non veg combination. It took... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
