Makes a lot of sense to visit Habesha as a bandwagon. You know you will never clear that tray by yourself. Been here couple of times always with colleagues and it has never got better.

The food was good here and there is a nice coffee experience. If you feel like a haircut or buying clothes, they are also in the compound. Overall it was a pleasant place to stop by and have a meal.

Went for dinner and drinks with a friend who lives in Nairobi. Sat in the back where the roaring fire is. Good service and excellent food, really cheap as well.

Habesha probably has the best tasting Ethiopian food in Nairobi. It's a large open sprawling restaurant, not in the high end category at all but clean and hygenic. The waiters recommendation should be followed as they help out first timers in discovering this type of cuisine. We had a large platter of mixed vegetable dishes and meat helpings server over...

We came in very hungry but couldn't manage to finish what we ordered. The food was delicious, and the ambience of the restaurant was very enjoyable. The service was great and the price was reasonable.

Nice ambience for friends, family and business get to gathers. Serves authentic Ethiopian food. Injera, Honey Tej etc. The staff are friendly and respond fast. Minced Goat meat was awesome. Clean Washrooms. They need to improvise for cosy winters as sitting outside is chilled. Reasonably priced.

Very nice Ethiopian food located not too far from Yaya center. Excellent place to go with a large group of friends. Seating is mostly outdoor within semi-private enclaves. Beware of the tej (local tea) which can have quite a smoky taste for the inexperienced.

Having a taste of Ethiopian cuisine has to be at the Habesha that is strategically located too. The food is amazing and very filling. their service is slow and they could do better. For the warmer days they have an excellent ambiance outside.
