“super pizzas, excellent value, friendly staff”
Review of Karibu Kitchen

Karibu Kitchen
Ranked #1 of 8 Restaurants in Mek'ele
Cuisines: Pizza
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 5, 2014

this restaurant is in a walled garden, with an open-plan kitchen; the pizzas are excellent, both vegetarian and meat; don't forget to ask for more or less chili, as you prefer; we didn't try the non-pizza dishes, but they looked good, and the kitchen is clean and tidy; the owner is an energetic and charming lady, who sets the tone for the staff; the only downside is that the toilets are Ethiopian style, not ideal for Europeans of a delicate sensibility

there is usually a party atmosphere, and we found other customers friendly and pleasant

Home made pizza had a small fire brought to the table to keep us warm as the evenings are quite cold. Need a thick jumper or coat.

The food is quite good in Karibu: pizzas, burgers and salads. But what is even worth it, is the atmosphere, being one of the few restaurants having an outdoor space with trees and vegetation. The place is always crowded as being one of the best restaurants in Mekele where locals and exptariates meet. The owner, John, is very friendly and always looking at improving his restaurant and service. You will enjoy coming for a drink or for food (open every single day for lunch and diner). Karibu is the place to be in Mekele! I have been leaving in Mekele for 18 months and go there for lunch or diner at least wice a week.

Still the best pizza in town (though some of the others are catching up). Not the place for a quiet dinner, but definitely worth a visit.
