“Great Place for Trying Something New!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Myself and two collegues ate here last night and the food was amazing - it was a great experience to be able to eat with your hands with the bread supplied. The Ethopian beer was also delicious.

For three of use, eating four main dishes and having two beers each it only came to £36! Bargain.

My collegue had also recently been to Ethopia and said the food was exactly as it is over there.

Will definately be visiting here again!

“Nice inexpensive food”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Enjoyable mid week dinner of Ethiopian dishes about £7-8 for most mains. The area itself near the bus station can seem a bit dodgy at night as in most citys but the restaurent itself was freindly and the food good value . Its got more of a cafe than a formal restaurant vibe about it but the food is tasty and good value.

“Try it! You won't be disappointed.”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have been going to Habesha for 2 years now, every couple of months. It is worth the 40 mile drive to Manchester, and although it is a little hard to find being up a spiral staircase above a fast-food joint, you can find the sign if you look for it.

I have enjoyed Ethiopian food ever since I was a kid living in Africa - Habesha is authentic, delicious, and very reasonable, not to mention how friendly and fast the service is.

A testament to its quality and reasonable price is the number of Ethiopians you will find in there every day of the week, enjoying a meal.

If you are looking for a new experience, share a communal meal with your friends, eat with your hands (right only please!), try a variety of new flavours and spices, and have a St. George's Beer from Ethiopia. Go for it.

We will keep going back!

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This place is hard to find, but it's worth looking for: the food is excellent, the service is first-rate, and the prices are more than reasonable.
