Delicious Ethiopian food, really designed to be eaten with fingers - but forks provided. Good range of meat and vegetarian dishes served on large fermented pancakes - with more pancake rolls provided. Lamb and chicken dishes particularly good. Excellent Ethiopian and African beer. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very reasonable prices.

The location is simple and the food is good. We ordered also vegetarian and meat dishes. The ethiopian style of eating is an interesting thing as you use the pancake style pita that is used to gather veggies and meat depending on what you desire. It is a special place, an interesting way of eating and healty food.

The food was quite good and was on par with some of the other well rated ethiopian restaurants i have been to. The staff were nice and friendly. But they seem to be having a real capacity problem. We were there on a slightly crowded day and it took more than an hour for us to get the food. During... More

This was clearly an authentic place, felt like it was a real family style meal, cooked by a caring Mum. Everything was nice, though nothing was too exciting. Big portions and very fair prices though.

Highly recommend. Our service people were charming-the food was so flavourful and there was lots of it. We made a reservation which was so very beneficial as the restaurant filled up quickly.

We went here for dinner as a family in the late evening. We chose this restaurant as it seemed to have a good selection of vegetarian dishes, and we were more than impressed with our meal. We ordered the mixed vegetarian platter that had all the side dishes (largely various preparations of vegetables and lentils) in the menu served on... More

If you are in the Vondel Park area, please come and give this place a go. The restaurant is small and cosy, and the owners are very welcoming. We had the mixed platter and the spicy minced beef platter. I'm not sure if platter is the right word but the food came out on big plates, on a bed of... More

This restaurant is little outside of the normal tourist areas but served wonderful food and is not expensive. Most people looking for something different typically look for Indonesian restaurants while in Amsterdam. But if your are tired of that but still want to try something other than standard tourist fare you should consider Ethiopian. And this place is a good... More

This place is SO real. I have been to Ethiopia several times, and I can easily say that this place is the real thing. Food is amazing, staff is a real nice family always ready to help you and help you to choose amongst the beautiful things they have to offer. The environment is familiar and cosy, it is not... More
