Fantastic idea of offering large sharing plates so you can try lots of different flavours and there is an abdunce of injera (Ethiopian break/pancake for eating... More

I came to this restaurant with a friend when all other Ethiopian restaurants in the area were fully booked. This had me a bit worried - wondering why this restaurant was the only one that had space left over. There was no need to worry. The food was outstanding and the service efficient. The injera was well made (though probably... More

Went here last weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the great food they serve here. We were two persons and took a mixed plate for two which is more than enough. The plate had some lamb,beef,cheese,pickled veggies,green veggies,... The plate is beautiful served in an "ethiopian" pancake. The nice thing is that you can just eat it with your hands.... More

This is an excellent restaurant with a good varied menu. We always share various vegetarian dishes here and there are a lot of options for us, and each dish we've tried has been wonderful. You will never leave Fasika feeling hungry - the portions are extremely generous and there's plenty of great injera bread to go alongside the meal. The... More

First let me start off by saying that I can be a very picky eater so I was a little afraid of trying Ethiopian food but I'm so glad my husband took me to Fasika. What a fantastic supper we had! We ordered the mixed plate for 2 which has a really nice assortment on it: beef, chicken and pork... More

We returned here in March 2013 and both the outstanding food and the friendly service are as great as they were years ago. It has become our favourite restaurant in Cologne.
