Ethiopian food is very good and this place has one of the best i have had. Perfect place to go for dinner time to taste some local delicacy and enjoy their music and dance. It does get packed by 8 pm onwards

This was a good experience to enjoy entertainment with a meal. We arrived around 7:00 and stayed until about 9ish. You can order off the menu or eat from the buffet.

We went there on our last nite in Addis. The food is good, especially the buffet, though a bit pricey. The manager and staff do a good job. The decor is traditional like a hut, and the traditional dancers and songs were the highlight of the evening.

This was our first stop in the city and it was well worth it. Fantastic local fare with great service. The only downside was that it set the bar pretty high for food for the rest of the trip. The music and dancing was a lot of fun.

I loved their cultural dance where they have portrayed different tribes dance. The restaurant interior was good and it depicts the hut of a Farmer.

Habesha restaurant is very famous and although its a little bit pricey I recommend every one to try it at least once. The have good traditional ethiopian food (I recommend you to try the Shirro my favorite dish) and dining is combined by live performance of traditional Ethiopian singers and dancers.

Thank MGhani
