They have awesome food at a really reasonable price, especially if you pick one of the platters for 2-3 people. This is one of my favorite restaurants in Dar. I even celebrated my birthday here :) it's great for large groups.

without doubt the best food quality i've had anywhere in Dar of any cuisine. simple, clean, charming, casual venue, traditional seating and table setting which is very characteristic in the Ethiopian style. The owner took care of our table with clear minded and efficient waitresses in support. All was of very high standard. The different dishes were distinctively seasoned, the... More

A lovely place to have Ethiopian food. Visited the place twice in the month. Had the meat lovers combination. It felt like a little discovery, the injera was very well made and didn't have to wait for a long time. Loved the merlot choices they had.

Ethiopian food is my favorite cuisine, and Rohobot is my favourite Ethiopian restaurant in Dar. Great food, good service, nice outdoor environment. I do this one regularly. They also offer take away and food delivery through hellofood. I highly recommend it if you like Ethiopian food or if you are looking for an interesting new cuisine to try in Dar.... More

Would definitely recommend to friends and would join for sure The only down side though is that when you arrive there is a dining room downstairs that nobody... More
