“Something different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

The food is good. And if you're not familiar with the Ethiopian kitchen and a concept where you share the meal and literally eats the plate (steamed bread) then it's worth a visit!

We got a table for 2 hours by trying our luck when they opened at 18:00 (kitchen opens at 18:30). It's very popular and reservations are definitely recommended!

“Cool Ethiopian restaurant in Brussels”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

We found this cool restaurant by pure chance walking around Brussels. I saw the TA 'certificate of excellence' on the door and someone inside saw me through the window and gave me a thumbs up so we decided to try it out. It was a holiday and the place was packed. We were lucky to get a table without a reservation as most tables were taken. The food was very good and I've had Ethiopian food several times. The staff was friendly and helpful; the atmosphere fun and relaxed. I would definitely go again if I'm ever in Brussels.

“Amazing Ethiopian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

We had a superb Ethiopian meal, and our hostess, Madeleine, was so passionate about explaining the food, the way it was served, and to be eaten, she made a great meal even more memorable.

Great atmosphere, really helpful ethiopian worker who explained the food and how it is eaten. The food smelt great and the place was busy - a good sign!
