The food and the tej (honey wine) are excellent. The setting is traditional and therefore nice to experience by visitors to Ethiopia. It does not have the feeling of a tourist trap like Yod Abyssinia. Interior looks a bit dated and even shabby but that's part of the Ethiopian experience. Parking can be difficult.

A must see restaurant in Addis. A historical cultural building (one of the first restaurants). But cold, bland Ethiopian fare served without a smile. The meals in little Ethiopia in Los Angeles are 50x better. and this is supposed to be one of the better Ethiopian restaurants. But worth a visit. Just don't go very hungry.

While the historical setting is impressive the standard of service is poor. The tibs on offer is not very tender, but hte tej is very good.

Food was really good and you definitely have the true Ethiopian restaurant experience being here. Only issue is it is pretty loud because there's quite a bit of locals there getting drunk with their friends. If you want a true Ethiopian experience, should definitely come here and try it out.

Among the restaurants in Addis, this is one of the more authentic. The tukul (traditional house) is really nice and original. They serve very good and tasteful traditional food at an affordable price. Very recommendable.
