Popped in here because we were looking for Ethiopian restaurants along Caledonian Road. Addis was really convenient and the first one we saw while walking from King's Cross station. Well, there was nothing bad about this place but it was certainly not what I was expecting. I was expecting maybe something more 'African' in terms of like sitting down at low tables. The wait for the food was pretty long considering it was empty when my friends and I visited for an early dinner. When the food came, the waiter poured the dishes out one by one on that giant pancake and left. We stared at it wondering how to eat it. Kinda funny actually.
We ordered lamb and chicken. The meat were cooked well, tender and quite tasty. Enjoyed the meat a lot. However, it was kinda pathetic to see only one drumstick for the chicken. The lamb was diced meat though, so it was definitely better. I can't remember what I ordered exactly but it was the chicken that's mildly spicy. It tasted like bolognese sauce to me... so kinda disappointing because I'd really wanted to like it. The lamb reminded me of indian curry.
My friends and I thought the whole meal was pretty unusual but it was a good experience overall trying Ethiopian food for the first time. We thought eating the meat with the pancake-like thing was kinda weird because it was tasted a little bit sour and sweet, and it wasn't warm.
That said, the food was pretty cheap (less than 10£) so no harm trying it out. We were definitely proud that we tried Ethiopian food once in our lives! Reminded us of Indian food a little and we still prefer Indian...
