“Delicious food in atmospheric setting”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

The food is very delicious with vegetarian (not sure about the bread, but the main dishes seem to be vegan), fish and meat choices.
The setting is Eritrean inspired, with low seating.
The service is not exactly up to Swiss standards, but in a more leisurely african way of life. You might have to ask twice for something but you will get it with a smile. A real no-rush restaurant with amazing food.

“Friendly staff and very good food!”

Staff is very kind, lovely food and very good value! I was still hungry after it and I got a free supplement :-) Definitely a good place if you want to try authentic Ethiopian food!
