My boyfriend took me to Minilik for my birthday in April and it was a pleasant surprise. We had never tasted Ethiopian food and we were not disappointed. The food was really good and the service was also excellent. We really recommend Minilik restaurant.

This small restaurant in SW Iceland in the small town of Fludir offers a colourful place to savour Ethiopian cuisine. It is a ma & pa operation so service can be slow since two people are doing it all. We arrived late and had to...More
