“Great Ethiopian experience - and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

I have eaten at Abyssinia several times before and can only recemmend it. The food is very authentic and it's really a ritual to eat here. THis starts with cleaning your hands in special pots, then eating everything with your hands, using the special Ethiopian bread, and finally the great taste of the coffee beans roasted in front of you before serving.

The value for money is definitely great for Zurich. For 28.- per person you get a huge plate with approx. 12 different meals (both vegetarian and with meat). It's maybe not a place for candle-light dinner, but a great place to go with a bunch of friends.
