“Great atmosphere and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Our first time having ethiopian food and what fun! Great spot and enjoyed the food, sharing was fun. Easy to share even with one vegetarian and two non vegetarians. The atmosphere was great and we would recommend as was a great new experience!

“Best Ethiopian food in Kenya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

The food is fantastic and the prices are reasonable. The atmosphere also nice. If you are okay with spicy food, you will enjoy it.

“Good Value Tasty Food & Nice Restuarant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We have been here twice now and will definitely continue to go back during our time in Nairobi. The food is super tasty! The goat tibs and vegetable platter is especially yum. And there is plentiful injera. I love ethipian food generally though - so if you don't want to eat with your hands or share or not eat off the Ethiopian menu maybe this isn't the place for you. Each time we have gone it was under 1000 bob including beer. The staff are efficient and friendly and I love sitting outside in the garden. Overall, a total win!

“Lovely staff but cold average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This place has the ambiance and is in a great location. Shame about the cold food. The frontline staff are still offering a great service though.
