“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

I wonder why the other restaurants in Stavanger don't learn from this great little place. There's no reason to charge an arm and a leg for simple, good food. Gadja certainly doesn't. You can eat here for under 300 Kroner for two persons and have a singing belly as you walk out of the door. We have been here several times because they specialise in gluten free bread and vegan/vegetarian palettes. So if this is you, then I recommend Gadja. But I also recommend it for any kind of palette, meat-eater and more. The food is fresh, it's not drowned in sauce or oil, it has great spice, taste and flavour, it's very fresh and fast, and the way of eating is very special. You have full sensory involvement using your hands to eat your food, and while sharing the platter with your fellow foodie. I love the fact that I don't have to use knife and fork. You also tend to eat a little slower and so can enjoy everything.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

Every time I´m in Stavanger visiting friends I try to make it to Gadja. I really like the food. Also have great options for Vegetarians/Vegans and also great place if you are gluten intolerant.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try something new.

“So happy to have in Stavanger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Ethiopian is one of our favorite foods so when Gådjå opened in Stavanger we were very excited. And they don't dissapoint! Excellent food, friendly service and great prices. It's too bad they don't have a liquor license for at least wine and Ethiopian beer but maybe that will come soon. We recommend that you order as a shared platter so the sauces and spices soak nicely into the injera bread.

We went there around 3 on a rainy afternoon and decided to try something different. It was very tasty and made for a new experience. Great price also! Would recommend it.

“A new experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

This is a pretty basic but lovely little Ethiopian restaurant.
The prices are very cheap compared to the area, but portions are pretty small too. You eat with your hands and taste Ethiopian food; great for a dinner with friends. Order several dishes and try something new!
