Touristy fare but in v pleasant surroundings. You see a lot of tourists and corporate types (accompanied by locals). Food is of good quality (Ethiopian cuisine). Also we have a show on regional customs, songs and very energetic dancing. All in all a good evening, kids enjoy it particularly. Pricey by Ethiopian standards.

Unfortunately way overpriced compared to the other restaurants around town, but none-the-less a fun experience especially if you have a limited time in Ethiopia and would like to see some of the traditional dancing. The traditional cuisine and Tej are both good and the dancing and singing is enjoyable. There are a fair mix of tourists and locals in the audience. For a more local experience head to Totot.

First to Review

There are two outlets of this restaurant in Addis. One is large and is a tourist trap -- that actually serves food in a buffet style (with white bread and forks / spoons!). The other is smaller, more intimate, and serves food Ethiopian style (on a shared plate and you eat with your hands).

We visited the more intimate location and loved it but were aghast when our second visit ended up being to the larger one. The smaller outlet was mostly locals and the performers were much better.

Food is the same at either one (and very good) but avoid the larger restaurant unless you want to be swamped by tour buses.

Loved the smaller restaurant. Would avoid the larger one like the plague.
