Never changes... For over 10 years our family has sat around the table sharing great food with friends and family. Worth every shilling! Shiro is our favorite!

I love Ethiopian food. It's probably my favorite cuisine. Though tasty, this is definitely the worst Ethiopian food I've ever had. Their dishes are just blander than what I've had in Dar, NYC, Washington DC, Oakland, Jerusalem, and from Ethiopian friends' kitchens (I've never been to Ethiopia.) However, I love the place itself. It is laid out in a network of rooms and courtyards that make it great for both large groups and intimate dinners. And as other reviewers have commented, the price is right.

This is the most wonderful place to eat Ethiopian food in Nairobi!!! Service can be a bit slow, but the food is worth the wait.

A very satisfying evening out in the garden.Informal setting for dinner followed by great coffee "ceremony" by the fire.The staff are friendly and helpful in choosing what to order.One has to visit it to savour the experience and to get a feel of Ethiopian food and culture.The food portions are generous and quite varied.Very reasonably priced too.(review by Kirti n Kim)

It was one of the most special dinner I had today from Habesha Ethiopian restaurant at Nairobi. Guys … I have only one message for you … you should visit habesha restaurant & try the tastes of Ethiopian cuisine, if you are in Nairobi … you will not be disappointed …

The coffee they served was very traditional, enriched with fragrance of frankincense & some popcorn.

Also the price was reasonable.
