Habesha is one of those restaurants that you just keep on going back to... what can I say,it's a mixture of the food, the lovely outdoor seating and the service but nothing really tops it in Nairobi.
Although it is possible to find better Ethiopian/Eritrean food in town, Habesha has a consistently high standard.
A good way to test how good an Ethiopian restaurant is, is by trying the Raw Kitfo... if your stomach is ok the next morning you know they have high standards of cleanliness! At Habesha the Kitfo (which you can also order rare or cooked but in my opinion raw is the best) is always delicious... there, test done, now go see for yourselves!

Well Habesha was my first experience to Ethiopian andmust say it was brilliant. The decor is very rustic and dis organised so just visit the place for its food. The servcie is excellent, the Ethiopian wine is great and the food class. For first timer go for the big plate which can be shared between 02 or 03 people easily and get a mix a vegetables, beef and mutton. If you like Indian curry you will definiely love it.

We did not go to the one Kilimani, that one is supposed to be very cosy. We just went for a quick bite in the one downtown. It is located in a big building and it's a bit rustic, but ok.I liked the food, the personel was nice and fast and it was really cheap. We ordered one dish with two people and could not eaven finish it. It not the kind of spot of a romantic dinner, but just for a quick bite. Go to the one in Kilimani if you also want to enjoy the surroundings.
