If you are tired of all that fish, this is a great spot to go to. It's true Ethiopian food with fair prices. We had the Selam Special and it was enough for two.

I went here on the 26th of April and ordered the Selma special at 199 krona. The food was delicious and the hygiene of the restaurant was very good. It has a good ambience and is well worth a visit.

Best vegeterian food I have had in the city. Cheap dishes, around 110kr. A bottle of wine costs 170kr. Makes it a great place for students.

I like to eat there because I get the feeling of authenticity, a fact confirmed by the fact that a lot of Ethiopians like to dine there! Most times the portions were so big that one dish was enough for a lunch for two.

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Ordered the beef tibs and the vegetarian platter. Food was delicious and service was quick and friendly. If I ever go to Bergen again, I would go here.

This is a cracking little no frills restaurant. Don't expect fastidious service, but you can certainly expect very reasonably priced and great tasting food. The atmosphere is unique, with lots of character, and delivers an all round great eating experience.
