Craving Ethiopian we thought we would give this a go. I would suggest if you know your Ethiopian go on any other night than Friday when they have the buffet which is pretty poor quality and just about quantity for 10,000 RW FR pp. The...More

We often have gone for "Ladies' Night" on Wednesdays. Women enjoy the buffet at a reduced price. The buffet has many options and is regularly replenished. The food is delicious. The wait staff are usually quite friendly, helpful and relatively efficient. Prices are reasonable.

Great food, fast service that is tucked away up on a hill. We ordered the vegetarian platter and extra chiro. One of the best meals we had in Kigali and a good price.

I had never tried Ethiopian food before and Lalibella made me love it. I was expecting more regarding the restaurant itself, but it had a certain home touch. It's more of a comfy home place than a restaurant ( for me) but that makes it...More

This is really a place to recommend in Kigali, especially when you are such a big fan of Ethiopian food. Good service, nice atmosphere, good food and reasonable prices. Also child-friendly.

This place has excellent food, great value, really friendly staff, and a laid back atmosphere. Ethiopian is one of my favorite cuisines and this is among the best I've had. Take note that Wednesday night is 'Ladies Night," which means two things: 1.Women drink soda...More

I have lunched and dined here several times, and so far it is one of the best places I have encountered in Kigali, although I haven't tried everywhere yet! The food is really great, spicy, and excellent for vegetarians, service too, and environment. I had...More

In brief, Lalibela offers mostly-athentic Ethiopian food in a decidedly downscale atmosphere. I lived in Ethiopia for two years and when eating at Lalibela it's like I'm back in Addis at one of my favorite restaurants, with one significant exception: the injera. As in every...More
