Very good restaurant in the centre of Geneva. Decoration is simple and the place is quite small, but the food is delicious and at a good price!

We enjoyed three vegetarian Ethiopian dishes here that were quite well prepared (even though we’ve had nicer lentil stew elsewhere). My husband really liked the spinach dish and enjoyed very much the cabbage with potatoes one. The service was a bit weaker (possibly due to language barrier) – they brought me white wine instead of red and forgot the mineral water (one of the two ordered). Also the ambiance is kind of missing, even though we did like the many Africans that were hanging out in the restaurant, mainly drinking tea and talking peacefully. Despite the pretty good food, I would probably not be back.

We found ourselves in a multicultural area of Geneva on a Sunday night, too tired to go far from our hotel near the central train station. We saw some good reviews of this place, and although we would rather have found local regional food, this Ethiopian restaurant had some very tasty fare for hungry travelers. It is traditional, not fancy food, and very hearty and filling.

Coming here feels like you have crashed a card game. Patron to busy with smoking to bother about your order or receiving your payment. Food fair enough, although too much spices; Ethiopian food can be full of taste also when it is not drowned in mitmita and berbere. Another bothering thing is the smell from the toilet, which you can notice when seated. Not fantastic.......
