Very recommended for a very enjoyable meal with friends. And has one of the most fun approach of eating food without tools, so more people is better

We were wandering on our first night in Amsterdam when we came upon this a lovely little Ethiopian restaurant. We ordered the vegetarian and wedding feast on the giant plate with pancakes. Completely filled us both up! Coconut and Mango beers also recommended!

Great no-nonsense place. Simple tables and chairs, you eat with your hands, but the food is oh so good! Most of the dishes are served in pancakes that are used to scoop up the food that is spread out over the pancakes. The lamb is...More
