“Great show, not so great food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

The show is great, lots of top quality dancing and music and entertainment, though the crowd interactions feel a bit like being on a cruise ship or something like that. The buffet, which was the only option presented to us, was very overpriced and not very good. You'll get better food almost anywhere else and pay 80% less. I'd take a pass if offered a second chance to go.

“Very very cultural...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

I am back dating this review ans I have just seen it on Trip Advisor. When we visitd Addis last year we went her for a evening out. We had a great night, a great insight into Etheopian culture. It's not expensive, very friendly and thoroughly enjoyable...

“Eh, one of many cultural restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Not bad...Yod Abyssinia is probably better. It has the usual set up of Ethiopian seating and traditional dancing in the evening.

“Only touristic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

This restaurant a feast for tourists! Ever if locals are there, and there are, the whole set up is tourist oriented, and thus the Ethiopian customers are part of the tourist show. I would not really mind, since I am a tourist, and I want to see some local dances and hear the local music, taste the traditional food, etc., but my problem was that at the end it was ridiculously expensive even for the European level. We were a big company and we order many of the local dishes, local beers, etc., and at the end we pay something like 30-35 euro per person. I do not recommend this place!
