The traditional food is delicious here and the entertainment is some of the best we've seen! We came here a couple of times and were not disappointed. Highly recommend

The classical traditional Ethiopian restaurant (the so called cultural restaurants). Nice environment, waitresses very kind and used to deal with non Amharic speakers. You can also find a well-fermented tej (pronounce like "touch") to finalize properly your meal. The only issue is the bellboy (the one dressed as a clown), who insisted to seek for a friend-taxi driver, when there were already a couple of free taxis waiting just outside the place. Of course the fellow came suddenly, and we were asked 200 birr just to reach the city centre (normally it's like 80-90 birr). Sad.

Came here for an office dinner. Good music, dans and the food was excellent. Recommended for a good traditional experience.

I like the entertainers...they never get tired but the food is average. The price is also on the expensive side.

This restaurant really has the absolute best food in town, even ask the locals! The dancing is amazing- authentic dances from all the country's regions that is just stunning to watch. This is a must, even if you're only in Addis for one night!
