“very authentic and delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

for those of you who don't mind sitting on low wooden chair (i mean very low) and sharing your food with your friends eting with the fingers (from the same plate)...hahaha, that's great place to eat.

one of the only restaurants that if you will not make reservations, you will most likely to go back home hungry as you won't find a place.

90% of the time they are full.

highly recommended for Dar visitors.

“Tasty food in lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

The rooftop restaurant is beautifully decorated which makes for a great atmosphere. There was a great selection of meat and also vegetarian dishes all served in traditional Ethiopian style. The service was friendly and fast. Probably the best meal I had in Dar.

“Authentically Ethiopian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

My third visit to Addis in Dar Restaurant in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, in that many years, and it continues to be a wonderful experience. Go with friends so you can share a wider variety of Ethiopian dishes eaten communally. Food is interesting, tasty and well presented. It is a great dining experience. Try and get a seating in the open air, under the stars. Food is served on a large circular plate with all the "curries" placed on injera bread, with extra bread on the side. Order their superb tomato salad, which provides a nice counterpoint to the spicy curries. Wash it down with a beer and end with coffee served the uniquely Ethiopian way. Forget the dessert, unless you want some ice cream to soothe your taste buds, though the food is spicy but not hot unlike Sri Lankan food.

“Good Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Nice place with good atmosphere with outdoor terrace seating. Was probably the best meal we had in Dar. Good mix of flavour and spice. Each dish was very good.
