They ruined our Christmas Eve dinner big time. We ordered a simple carbonated penny, and after 40 minutes they brought a spaghetti. The amount of time it took already frustrate us as we had many other restaurant options to go that wouldn’t hold us for...More

My dinner started with soup on the house while my order was being prepared. A nice gesture. In my opinion, too much bread is served with the soup. Average food. Attentive service. Good location near Golden Tulip Hotel.

I stopped by this restaurant on my way from hotel. Food nothing extraordinary but quite decent. Recommended if you want to try local Ethiopian food but in a slightly upscale atmosphere. They have foreign dishes as well but I did not try them.

I was taken to Mama's Kitchen by some friends when we wanted a place to chill and get a drink. The restaurant is a full bar at night, with a warm, lush feel. The wood panelled walls create shadows in the evening, lit primarily by...More

Love this bar. Perhaps the best stocked bar in Addis...and very reasonable prices. Great atmosphere. Good service. But the food has gone downhill since it opened up a few years ago. Menu needs some pizzazz.
