Habesha offers a wide variety of seating areas. We were a group of about 10, and ordered 2 large platters of food plus extra njera and it was all delicious. Good service.Large round table was good for us as a group.

I'm.a big fan of Ethiopian food and this place was up to the expectations. I ordered a mix dish and it was more than enoguh for me, I had to take the leftovers. The food is very good although service is not amazing.

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.
