I visited Tutu's Ethiopian table at south hill food festival with my 7 year old. The choice was limited as very popular and beautiful so tasty we both ate it all. I will definitely be visiting the cafe in Reading next time I'm there!

Some people seem to positively rave about this place, but I think that's just because it's so unique: I don't know of anywhere else one can get Ethiopian food in Reading. Problem is, this doesn't really make it great. Though they can certainly cook meat...More

A very friendly informal venue, the food is excellent, but not as spicy as other ethiopian meals I have had but highly recommended

Unpretentious setting with a limited menu but the food is really lovely and great both for vegetarians and meat lovers. Staff friendly and efficient.

I tried the chicken and lentils and my wife the chicken and cabbage. Both very nice and spicy from their mobile catering tent. Good value though the pancake served on is a bit bland hence 4 stars.

If you are into ethnic things and special, special food, this is the place for you. We went there for another pub, but it transformed into a nice mixture of food that we shared and drinks.
