Popular with tourists, NGO workers, and diplomatic types, yet locals also go there. The buffet offers a wide variety of traditional foods of good quality, and the musicians and dancers offer a taste of the many different traditional regional dances, and occasionally pull a guest into the fun too.

If you are visiting Addis, the cultural restaurant with music/dancing shows are either Yod Abyssina or 2000 Habesha. You will always find some tourists there but there are also many locals coming to enjoy a dinner with dances. Actually the day I was there we could find more locals around.... Room is quite big with nice view on orchestra and... More

I visited Habesha with a large group in Addis for a conference. The restaurant did a nice job of arranging our seating in advance as a group. The food was buffet style. It's hard to judge since I'm not too familiar with Ethiopian cuisine, but it seemed average. The reason to go here was clearly for the entertainment. There were... More

This restaurant located inside a dedicated building for its purpose isnt inside a traditional Ethiopian building, even if u get the impression once inside. This is where the tour companies and the expats bring the tourist to get a glimpse of the main ethiopian cultures expressed by singing and dancing. The really cool part of this place is its a...

2000 Habesha Cultural Restaurant, we came for the food and ended up staying for the show. The buffet at 2000 Habesha is pretty extensive. We had our chose of both meat and vegetarian dishes. If you have never seen traditional Ethiopian dancing, you have to at least once. The shoulder-popping, head-spinning extravaganza is pretty unique, unlike anything else I’ve seen.... More

It's a can't miss place when you are in Addis. A buffet with a lot of different Ethiopian specialties (I believe not less than 20), smiling and courteous staff and a live show with Ethiopian songs and dances. I really enjoyed it! Affordable prices (buffet, 2 beers, one coffee at 450 ETB(, higher than average in Addis but it really... More

I was very surprised to find out this place is very popular among locals who go appreciate traditional music and dance. It is a cheerful location. I had already had dinner when I visited, so only had a beer, but the traditional injeras looked good.
