Best Ethiopian food I've ever had. Enjoyed the fish tips, lentils, and potato curry, as well as the honey wine. The ambience is lovely with colored umbrellas and so many candles.

Without doubt, this was one of the best meals we have ever had as a family. From start to finish, it was a fabulous experience. As we were transiting through dar es salaam, we’d wanted a good restaurant and were delighted to pre book -...we were late due to Friday night traffic jams, emailed ahead and the restaurant couldn’t have been more gracious. Onto the restaurant - the upstairs terrace is incredible, beautiful lighting and traditional seating. The kindness & attentiveness of the staff was incredible - nothing was too much. And the food - oh the food was incredible and served in such a convivial way. We had a mix of spicy and non spicy dishes - all thoroughly flavoursome & thoroughly enjoyed the lashings of Ethiopian flatbread - injera, which was a first for us. Our teenagers loved trying new the tastes. Thank you so much - we can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough.More

After five years away from Dar, lovely to find one of our favourite restaurant just as good as we remembered. Delicious food, great ambience - even the slightly uncomfortable chairs can’t ruin the experience. Don’t miss the coffee.

Amazing food. Well cooked, delicious, great portions. The staff is absolutely lovely. The terrace is stunning and the candlelight really makes it special. Strongly recommend.

I wanted to eat Tanzanian food for dinner, but the place that I wanted to go for authentic Tanzanian & East African food - doesn’t have a menu with prices and I read a lot of reviews of tourists being charged ridiculous prices after food...was consumed. I’ve fallen for that scam once in Italy, Never Again! So we ended up eating the cuisine of another East African country instead. Ethiopian food at Addis in Dar. One of the few restaurants open on Tuesday night (which seems to be the weekly holiday for restaurants in Dar) Set on the open terrace of a 2 floored house, surrounded by trees, there was a lovely breeze blowing which made for a good experience. We ordered one of the combos that came with misir wot (masoor dhal), chicken doro wot and lamb alicha wot. Added a gomen (sautéed spinach) to this combo. When the food arrived, the injeera was made from rice, not teff and there was a bit of a a cabbage carrot dish too. Excellent food, light on the stomach and tasty too. They had tej and other alcoholic drinks too, but I had a fresh lime soda to combat the heat.More

This place has a great atmosphere on the rooftop top but the food is is is not original Ethiopian food. The bread is made with rice instead of task and is very white and different in taste. The price is very expensive we purchase 2...dishes and paid 90000 Tanzanian shillings. Would not recommendMore

The food seems very authentic Ethiopian. The food was good. It has a nice cozy feel. The stairs to the rooftop area and the seats are not so suitable for an elderly person.
