Fantastic experience: good honest advice from staff for Ethiopian "novices" like us - tasty, filling and good quality. Enjoyed.

It was our first time trying Ethiopian cuisine, it was great! Herbs and spices combined in a way we've not tasted before. Lovely food, great service and they brought a cake with a candle out for the husband's birthday, which I hadn't requested, lovely touch....Thank you! We'll be back and I highly recommend Lalibela 👌🏽More

Went yesterday on a date. Made a trip out from Reading and it was totally worth it. Ordered a meal for 2 (£21.45) and it was wonderful. Staff were nice, restaurant was nice. A tiny bit slow and we didn't have the best seats but...would definitely go again.More

Delicious food, lovely staff, good value. The Assa (fish) dishes were superblyv spiced, served with the Injera bread. I enjoyed the Fitfit starter.and the milk and honey dessert, too. If I had one minor complaint, it would be that not everything on the menu was...available.More

I came to this restaurant tonight on a recommendation and was thoroughly impressed. Both the service and the food were exceptional. The waitress was very friendly and had some great reccommendations. We also got to meet the chef who was excellent. I could not recommend...this place enough. Definitely visit if you can!!More

Food was fantastic, first time trying Ethiopian food, would definitely go again. Sharing platters were great, and when a green bean side dish tastes that good I have to wonder how they pack in all that flavour. Visited during COVID restrictions, so card payments are...now accepted and the tables were well spaced and separated but still felt cosyMore

I have been across Africa and UK but this Ethiopian experience has been the best. Fresh food, great service and authentic tasting food had made me visit it more than once! There are great options for vegans and meat eaters with an amazing coffee ceremony....I will keep coming back for more!More

Having been to Ethiopia and having tasted a variety of food around the country, I was so pleased to be reminded of all the tastes and flavors at Lalibela. Everything is served the traditional way, on a tef-based injera, colorful, spicy, delicious. At some point,...I thought I was somewhere else!More
