When in Addis, definitely go to Yod Abyssinia or Habesha 2000, for the dancing experience. The performance and dancing style is definitely unique. However, don't be expected to be wow-ed by the food. They have a buffet laid out to cater to tourists, and the quality of the meat is not very good. We heard from friends that went to... More

This is the final stop for any tourist on a tour in Ethiopia and is decked in every nook and cranny with various cultural decorations, and figures. It did comfort me however to see Ethiopian families coming for dinner, so it's not totally (although a bit) of a tourist factory! Huge food buffet with a wide range of traditional dishes.The...

A popular venue with locals and tourists, Habesha Cultural Restaurant provides a wide variety of traditional Ethiopian foods (both spicy and calm), accompanied by a show of traditional dancing and singing that was great fun to watch. Plan on spending about 3 hours there as you dine at a leisurely pace and pause to enjoy the dancing. Take a cab... More

This should be the first stop for the country's culinary journey! Great local food buffer, nice coffee, Ethiopian restaurant ambiance, center of Addis. A bit pricey though compared to other local restaurants but it's good for at least once.

The room is shamelessly celebrating all things Ethiopian, with displays and features evoking the many iconic aspects of this colourful country. Having come here after a two-week trip all over Ethiopia, it was brilliant to remind ourselves of all the sights we'd seen as well as the cultural styles played out in dance and song on the stage. The performers... More

If you want in one place to have a quick overview of different ethiopian closing, music and dancing; that is the place to go, of course in addition to enjoying ethiopian food served in the traditional way, one injera with the food on top or individually on a plate if you are not enjoying the one plate every hands on...
