“Not desperate to go back.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

There were only 7 other people in the restaurant when we arrived. Took about 10 mins before someone came from the back to give us a menu. Portions were generous, and wine no more or less expensive than other restaurants. Coffee was said to be an "experience", but was just a short black. They had also run out of most of the desserts. Personnel were pleasant, but spent more attention on the smartphone at the bar, than on the customers. Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere, and don't need anyone hovering, but we almost decided to clear away our own dishes. It took that long.

“Authentic food experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I have been coming here on and off for the past 10 years and I must say it's a gem in Amsterdam and maybe a bit hidden for visitors, but it's worth the small journey to taste what the Ethiopian cuisine has to offer. Additionally, the service is great and portions can be shared among a couple or a group.

“Exotic food and drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

It's not an obvious place to find as a tourist since it is located a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit. Very friendly, family-run restaurant with great Ethiopian food.
Great experience, try it!
