Overall, a pleasant but costly meal. Food was just ok. The naan was not authentic, the biryani was overly and unnecessarily complicated with too many flavours. The Dahl was uninspired. We would not return as there are less expensive and better tasting options in the...More

Authentic food, great taste and fantastic service! We have tried many courses and everything tasted perfectly. Have skipped the desert though, as we'd already eaten too much.

I relate to the review of this restaurant by Tim B. Found the vegan mixed vegetable and dal dishes underwhelming. They were rather bland, and the vegetables were indistinguishable and did not taste as if prepared fresh but from a can or freezer. However, friends...More

I decided to spend New Year's Eve at Sheraton having Italian food but the place was completely booked so Shaheen was my second option. I do not regret it. In Addis Ababa you can have decent Italian food in more than one place but not...More

Two couples ordered 4 different curries which we shared and thoroughly enjoyed. There is a variety of sambals, chutneys and other side dishes available. Well worth a visit if you enjoy curries as there are not any other options available. World class food and service.

My friend and I had the pleasure of eating at Shaheen during the Ethiopian Art Show. Every dish we got was amazing and flavorful. However, by Ethiopian standards, this was a very expensive meal for two people (2800ETB/$140 USD). Definitely a special occasion restaurant.
