Traditional atmosphere, wide selection of Ethiopian fasting and non-fasting buffet dishes. This, washed down with local beer and tej (local honey wine/mead - an acquired taste!) to the sound of live band playing traditional instruments with energetic dancers and singers, made for a most enjoyable...More

We enjoyed the food, music and dancing. It's a great place to enjoy traditional Ethiopian dance and the community way to eat.

The ethiopian food is westernized, the ambiance is good with the loud music and the dancing. Service is ok.

Made it for dinner in Habesha traditional resturant. Food was good although not a great choice for vegetarians and no halaal...but Very fresh salads and veggies and well presented. Entertainment overwhelming - great but sometimes too loud. Lots of audience participation...so very interactive and fun....More

I had a great time at Habesha 2000. It felt a little touristy, but the dancing and singing was amazing. I mistakenly had the buffet.. very overpriced for food. Next time I will just have a beer and popcorn. Definitely worth the stop!

Traditional food, dance, and drinks. The first thing you will do in entering the buffet line is wash your hands. After eating using your hands as utensils they will bring over the pitcher and basin to wash your hands. I don't know how the dancers...More
