“Something different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Had a beautiful meal here on our last evening in Tanzania, the Ehtiopian cuisine was second to none. All served up a huge plate for everyone to dig into; not cutlery here just the beautiful pancakes to scoop it all up. Lovely evening was had by all, reservations are needed for the best tables!

“Delightful Night Out - Something Different”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Used to live in Ethiopia and haven't eaten Ethiopian for a while. Loved it. Food was authentic, flavoursome and delicious. My friend cleaned up and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was great. Obviously some people will be out of their comfort zone eating with hands and tasting the assortment of dishes. Give it a go for something different. A good night out.

“Good authentic Ethiopian food and wonderful evening atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Went with a large group to dinner while in Dar. We were seated right away on this lovely rooftop restaurant. As usual, you want to take a taxi there and preferably have your taxi come back to pick you up but there are taxi drivers outside the restaurant. Food was tasty. Service was only OK. Not much cheerfulness but mostly efficient other than one of the dishes being delivered to the wrong table (we had 2 tables) and dumped uncermoniously onto the pancake of the other table without confirmation of proper delivery. Otherwise, we enjoyed the food, atmosphere and setting. I recommend it.

“Good food, didn't feel well after”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

Delicious food and good service, but me and a few other people weren't feeling great after. No one was physically ill, but just feeling a little off!
