Service was warm efficient, and friendly. Each entree was more than enough for each person and prices were very very reasonable. Centrally located yet quiet. Food was AMAZING. One of the best meals in Tel Aviv. Couldn’t recommend more!!

My group had a fantastic time here. The food was so good and the plates allowed us to try multiple different tastes. Ask the amazing restaurant owners and staff about the food and Ethiopian culture and you might even get a dance lesson! Would love...to come back!More

Very popular restaurant serving authentic Ethiopian food in the trendy Yemenite Neighbourhood (Kerem Hateimanim) Tel Aviv. It has a homely, friendly, relaxed and laidback atmosphere with a fairly basic but delicious menu. Both meat and vegan/vegetarian options are served in the traditional way on a...large platter covered in the unusual pancake style 'bread' with the different portions of food arranged on this. Best eaten by scooping up the food using the bread, cutlery provided if requested. I enjoyed an early evening meal with my son and 5 year old grandson.More

I have been going to Balinjira since it was opened and I thought that it's time to make a review :) I have been to a few ethiopean places, and this is my favorite! The food is great, especially the Doro Wat. A really good...atmosphere for dinner, nice collection of thiopeans beers,More
