This is a new, small and clean place located at coordinates (9.004824, 38.780556) right next to Cyan City Hotel on Mickey Leland street, Bole area. It serves explicitly tasty foul and falafil made in Sudanese style with feta cheese and sesame oil. You can also enjoy a cup of black tea with mint after your meal.

The cost ($125... More

The car, a Toyota Landcruiser, was spotless each morning and there was always plenty of bottled drinking water on board. BEHA always had our safety upper most in his... More

The companyh, based in Addis Abeba, proved to be reliant, efficient and responsible. The hotels chosen were the best available, and with the exception of one hotel, there was never any problem in...
