“Great spot for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

The best thing about this place is the ambience - the restaurant is in an old bungalow and their outdoor seating is in the shade of the trees. Nice break from the pollution and traffic in Nairobi.

You can hang out as long as you'd like and have a great lunch - the food is good too!

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

My first ethiopian experience. I have been there 4 times since then and I always love it. Spicy but very tasty, a must if you like to try new things.
