Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After reading lots of positive reviews about this restaurant, myself and my girlfriend decided to give it a try for ourselves. Needless to say that we weren't disappointed. First impressions were very positive, as the restaurant had a nice ambience - not super busy, which...I prefer - some good tunes playing in the background, and is decorated in a cool and thoughtful way. I found the food very satisfying (and it is always nice to find some spicy food in Paris!). My girlfriend, who is vegetarian, also really enjoyed her meal. To top everything off, we had a beautiful cup of coffee and a great chat with the manager - he made us feel truly welcome throughout. Definitely a place we will visit again!More

Ethiopian food is a mixture that gives you the sense of the history of North Africa. It is pleasant and vibrant. These peop5wičl sincerely treat you as a friend because there's no reason not to. Season the mix plate with some South African wine, and...of course end it with the magic of the Ethiopian coffee which is served as the most important thing in the world. When you finish here go for a drink at Edith Piaf bar because it is not fake, and because ypu will remember Paris for this experience. Ovde ćete se osećati kao kod kuće jer Etiopljani cene i vole goste iz naše zemlje, kako god da se zvala. Hrana će prijati našem nepcu, a ja sam uz to naučio kako se moje ime piše na jeziku o kome nisam znao ništaMore
