Typical african restaurant where food is served on a large platter covered with typical bread and sides. The food was amazing and not to spicy (if you ask for it not to be). A friend took a vegetarian meal which was good also.

We visited on a rainy Sunday evening in Tours. We received a warm welcome and ordered the selection of 8 different dishes. A vegetarian selection can also be ordered. All were delicious and we left nothing at all! The drinks selection is fairly limited but...More

Ate here as a group of five and we all enjoyed a dinner comprising meat and vegetarian dishes. Inexpensively priced. Great service. Good quality food and an unusual experience. No hesitation in recommending this one!

We ate here and absolutely loved it. They service was great and they fully catered for vegans and were able to confidently speak about the menu. The food was lovely and we would recommend for others to try.

Highly recommend this place. It serves delicious food as well as decent wine and beer (try the imported Ethiopian beer it's not bad!) If you're a stranger to Ethiopian cuisine, just remember that hands are used instead of cutlery (most of the time anyway). Personally,...More

Typical Ethiopian restaurant. Food is served on a large platter covered with typical Ethiopian bread, with more on the side. The food was delicious, and you can choose your level of spiciness. There are plenty of vegetarian options, which I found to be rare in...More
