Horn of Africa has to my knowledge, a staff of two! And yet the food tastes as there must have been more people involved. Having a taste of african/ethiopian food-culture, as well as a non-western interior, is a great way of "travelling" abroad. Thank you...More

We ordered a sharing plate, with the most juice chicken and meat, and super soft and yummy bread. I love it when you don't need a fork or knife. You get so much food for a fair price, and the staff is very friendly and...More

Great food and great people who run the place. Always choose the shared vegetarian platter and it’s plenty of food for 2. If it’s your first time there, they’ll take their time explaining how the food is eaten and what the different dishes are.

I've been here a few times and have always enjoyed it. The service is great and the food is so good. Ethiopian may not be for everyone (normally you'd order a shared plate and eat with your hands) - but I would recommend everyone to...More
