“Average experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

Being a major Ethiopian restaurant in Nairobi, it was a bit disappointing in service but quite satisfying in the food. I had the general platter (cant remember the name) that has several meats, boiled egg and njeera. The food was very lovely and in big enough portions. One serving was enough for two of us. Their coffee which is brewed fresh from beans roasted on site is also very nice. Unfortunately the waiters looked very bored and so I did not like their service at all. There is enough parking and the location is easy to find...just after Yaya centre on the way to Methodist.

“Everything in Habesha is.......Perfect!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014

I have eaten here so many times though i go there Mainly for the Ethiopian dish-Njera.It's so delicious and so many people come here for the same.They also brew their own Ethiopian traditional coffee served in tiny small cups.Delicious is the word!! The place is big and one can decide to seat anywhere be it in the small shed cubicles outside,at the bar,inside the restaurant or outside.The service is great,they're fast,friendly and helpful incase you need assistance.No matter how full sometimes it always is you can Never lack somewhere to sit.Lovely place!!

“Fantastic atmosphere and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

We were 3 people that desided to go there because of the good reviews on tripadvisor and i have to say it was all that i hoped for. The food was fantastic and you dont stop eating although your are full. The surounding is really nice and it is like an oasis in otherwise a busy area.
the only minus was that the didnt exept creditcard seeing there machine was broken but thankfully we had enough cash to pay the bill. I highly recommend this place although the prices are not as low as some have written before. Go there and you wont regret it.

“Default dinner choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2014

When folks are coming to town or a group of friends have gotten together and are thinking of dinner - this is our default choice. Great food, excellent value, and a great atmosphere (if you get a table out in the garden). It's not fine dinning, but at the price it can't really be beat for a good evening out.
