We've been eating at Jebena a few times now and it's one of our favourite spots in Stockholm. Very tasty food at good prices. Big plates, always have troubles finishing up! Good atmosphere and service.

A warm & wonderful restaurant with friendly service and great food... Excellent njera, and the clientele is vibrant and friendly. Great music, great vibe, a real gem right in the underground.

Reasonable prices for great injira. Had the mixed vegetarian plate for two and it was more than enough. Lentils, spinach, mixed vegetables and a spicy sauce.The best eritrean food I've had in Sweden.

We passed Je Bena at around 1am and were intrigued to find what seemed to be an African music club situated within Radhuset underground station. The place was packed and literally jumping with an exclusively African crowd (mostly Eritrean). Having travelled widely in Africa and being fans of African music we decided to go in. Unfortunately we were stopped by... More

In a cozy environment, down by the entrance to the subway (underground level), you find this eritrean restaurant. How can that be cozy, you think? The red stone walls frame it beautifully and gives it a unique atmosphere :) If you're into hot food, this is just the place for you. Their berbersauce puts the H in hot! They put... More

Our curiosity got the best of us and we went in for dinner. When we arrived early on a Saturday we were asked if we had a reservation,... More

I love Stockholm's metro and when our friends told us to go for dinner to an ethiopian restaurant placed IN a metro station I just couldn't say no. We got there by 9pm on a buzy Friday night and the service was pretty fast for such a rush hour. The food sadly wasn't that good. In my opinion it lacked... More

As becomes readily apparent when one walks around, Stockholm has a decently-sized Ethiopian/Eritrean community. Sadly, the excellent Ethiopian restaurant in Miami closed a number of years ago, so it is a cuisine I get cravings for when I travel. Jebena did not disappoint. There was quite a buzz about the place, with the Eritrean jazz just loud enough to be... More

Neighborhood Profile
Kungsholmen
Kungsholmen is one of the largest islands in central Stockholm and one of the most popular places to live. Its most famous attraction is Stockholm’s City Hall, which stands out with its monumental architecture and is one of the most photographed buildings in Sweden. Kungsholmen has its own little city center and shopping mall, its own beach and a lovely pedestrian area next to the water, which charms both locals and visitors with beautiful little cafés, restaurants and of course an awesome view. This neighborhood is perfect for a relaxed stroll followed by some coffee on a Sunday afternoon.
