“Great clean food and generally awesome place to relax”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I've been here a few times while living in Addis, and it's a great place for a change from local restaurants. Menu is varied and everything is good, and there's internet to boot. It's expensive compared to Ethiopia prices but not international prices.

We like the Lime Tree! Good food, especially the brunch buffet on Sunday, good coffee and a nice chilled atmosphere.

“Ethnic variety in one restaurant”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Not the best Indian food, pasta, or Chinese stir fry but where else in Ethiopia can a family of four enjoy 3 different national cuisines? We endured the hot sun and a family feud over a taxi (we ended up walking) to get to this restaurant. It was worth it.

“Very good food but no alcohol”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Fantastic place for lunch as it is airy and bright with good selection of fresh food. Service is friendly and relatively quick. Onion rings are a must!

“Decent little place”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Nothing overly special about this place, but nice enough for a casual meal and the food is good. Service was good and friendly, and the proces weren't outrageous. I'd visit again without question.
