This is now one of my favorite restaurants in the area. Great vegetarian food (or vegan) - ask for the 4 or 5 plate sampler. While it does not look like a lot of food at first - one will be hard pressed to clean your plate. The vegetarian sampler was fantastic, and the mango drink made a nice combination.... More

This is certainly a place i would recommend to someone who wants to explore something new and who is unfamiliar with Ethiopian cuisine. A very charming atmosphere and nice staff. And the dessert was a solid 10/10.

After a long and cold day we were in for a warm and spicy surprise! We had some vegetarian dishes along with a lot of injura bread. Everything was delicious and the waiter was super friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!

Great place. I have eaten at Messob several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is warm and welcoming. The food is delicious and most dishes comes with a very tasty pancake called injera. You will find a large menu of African beers that goes well with the pics food.

This place is great. Drinks are amazing and the food is really good. I am so happy we have Messob in Uppsala - I would want more restaurants like this one. The only thing I am unhappy about with this place is that the building is nothing special, even if it's quite cosy.

The restaurant is a bit away from the city center and hard to spot. The food is very tasty and adjusted according to Swedish taste. Use your hands, if you want to get the best flavor of those dishes.....
