“The New look of Marathon Restaurant”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

I love this restaurant, they serve fresh and unique Ethiopian meal. I have tried other places but with spacious new look and good atmosphere I prefer this restaurant, the waitresses are very nice but needs more staff in busy days. However, I recommend friends to dine out here.

“Really interesting place - worth a visit”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

Having recently moved to the area, I wanted to try some of the local restaurants and this place on the corner always intrigued me. The smells coming out of there are fab! Inside it looks a bit like a golf club bar or something - reddish carpets and quite an olde worlde wooden bar. There are lots of Ethiopian guys sitting around the bar, drinking, and everyone is smiley and very welcoming. We tried a bit of everything, as recommended by the lady who was behind the bar and took our orders. They were so friendly and helpful and as it was our first time trying Ethiopian food I feel like they really helped us out. The food itself was a bit hit and miss to my taste (I'm not a big fan of injeera bread) and not have cutlery was definitely an experience! But overall I really enjoyed our night here. Definitely something a bit different - and who wants to eat at Nando's all the time. Try it if you're in the area!
