A friend who lives in Nairobi recommended this restaurant and we were so glad. We loved it. We go to Ethiopian restaurants fairly often in Chicago. The food at Habesha was excellent but it was the atmosphere of eating in a garden with a fire burning that made this restaurant over the top for us.

Exelent dinner and great staff! food is amazing. I would definitely go back if I only happen to live in Kenya! Impressive service and didn’t wait long even when there was a full house! The pricing is unbelievable, too inexpensive for the quality and flavor of their food. You will not regret it.
A pleased Californian girl!

Habesha is not smart. It is a garden cafe where you won't marvel at the decor or the comfortable seats. It is, however, one of the friendliest places I have ever been, with waiting staff who welcome you as friends. The food is fab - but you have to be a fan - which I am. The bill is a huge surprise - of a good kind - a veritable feast for very little. A gem.

Habesha is the best place to eat Ethopian food with family, especially the young ones. I like the fact that there are designated smoking zones. The best part however is their fresh juice, and large portions. The service is not very fast but they do get really busy. The prices are okay but they need to really improve on their service.
