I have been here 3 times. Yesterday (which is my last time here), I was served very cold food and very tough meat (Shikla tibs). I explained to the waiter, but no apology was forthcoming. To add insult to injury, when I ordered for Amarula cream, the waiter laughed at me (for reasons best known to himself) before my whole family. If you want Ethiopian food, and it must be at HABESHA, please try the Argwings Kodhek one. It never disappoints.

Had a lovely dinner here recently with a business colleague of mine. Excellent Ethiopian food and great ambiance. Super service in an outdoor al fresco environment. Lovely!

Real Ethiopian food with generous portions. Great ambiance. The Tej is amazing. It'll get you drunk slowly but surly so be careful. For carnivores i recommend the Tibs or Mahiberawi. For vegetarians, go with the Beyaynetu (veggie platter).

It is always a treat to go to enjoy good quality food that one has to acquire the taste to enjoy. I highly recommend the Restaurant for anyone seeking an alternative taste while in Nairobi.
