After visiting Ethiopia I can now say that in one of my favourite restaurants in Amsterdam, one gets fabulous, genuine Ethiopian cuisine at a very sharp price. The atmosphere is good, the Eritrean owner very friendly, and the banana beer, served in a wooden cup, is chilled down to the right temperature. Highly recommended!!

Simply amazing food! When we go we never order from the menu, we just tell the chef\owner to bring whatever he wants and it has never been a disappointment. The price is super reasonable. We have never paid more than 15E per person including drinks. The ambiance is very exotic, super casual. If you are in town and if you like Ethiopian food, this place is a must.

Me and my family had a special meal in this little but special cousine restaurant !
A real test of 'ngera with all kind of spicy meat and vegetable food.
With the smile of the waiters and the special test from the kitchen we had a wonderful test of our favorite dishes!

If you a person that likes to try different food in life, this is a nice place to be. One thing: you need to be able to eat with hands!
They have really nice things, the service is fantastic, the price is quite good and the best is that you can eat quite late also (that in Amsterdam is BIG difference!). You can arrive at 22.00 and they are going to serve food without any problem.
I went there many times and always the owner (who is from Eritrea) is with a big smile offering and explaining the things that they have.
Recomendation: try the honey wine, the banana o mango beer combined with the Menu with different options with meat or vegetables. The one with pumpkin is great!
If you don´t like spicy food, try lo let them know because also the "soft" is quite spicy.
Is nice to go with friends also.

Very tasty biological food, incredibly good value for money, great atmosphere, complemented with a most hospitable host called Jimmy (well this is his Western name; he has an Ethiopian name as well which I have forgotten...) The only Ethiopian in Amsterdam - and probably the rest of the Netherlands if not Europe - with guaranteed no gluten in any of its foods, as Jimmy uses 100% real tef for his 'endjera' (sour pancakes with which one eats Ethiopian food), a crop with no gluten in it that is only grown in Ethiopia. Other restaurants use flour that is more readibly available and much cheaper on the European market. But Jimmy is a perfectionist, and that makes all the difference!
