“Waited 90 minutes for food”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

We were in a group of 15 people and had to wait 90 minutes between ordering and getting our 4 large shared Ethiopian dishes. It was a busy time, but there was hardly a flurry of people rushing to and fro to the kitchen. During the time we had to wait there was no explanation, no apology, no extra dishes etc. Would be 3-4 stars with better service.

“Fun meal with friends”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

This is the most social dinner I have ever had with my friends. Each course, a variety of different dishes, was served on a large silver platter and it was a wonderful free for all!

A delicious combination of vegetables, lentils, herbs, spices, cheeses and meats, this was the most eclectic assortment of tastes I have ever experienced in one meal.

Cutlery is not an option, instead the meal was eaten by tearing off small strips of spongy pancake, enjera, and using that to pick up the food.

Our drinks were flavoured African beers that were served in some fun coconut shells.

Service was friendly and the food was served quickly. As a group of 7 we had to book a table on the terrace as it was sunny.

I couldn't recommend this place enough; a highly sociable, extremely tasty dining experience at a thoroughly reasonable price.

“Down to earth African restaurant where you eat with your hands”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This African restaurant is a perfect place if you want to taste authentic African food. It is a small restaurant so you have to make a reservation. There are 1 or 2 people to serve and they are really friendly. The food taste very good and they also have some special African beers.

“Good food and a fun experience”
Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Thought we'd try something different when we were looking for a place to have dinner, and we're glad we did. The food was very tasty, and it was fun to try the different flavours and styles. Eating with our hands was also a fun experience. The service was attentive and the price was really reasonable.
