We went with colleagues and had a great time, with tasty authentic Ethiopian food as well as the cultural show. Songs and dances from the various parts of Ethiopia were performed with mastery. I even had the opportunity to try one of the dances. The decor is also very Ethiopian. Overall, it was a great experience I recommend to everyone.

Even though this place is a restaurant and you go there specifically to eat Ethiopian, this place gives you a glimpse of what Ethiopian culture is like. The place itself is decorated traditionally. You get to experience traditional dances and songs. And best of all, the food, ETHIOPIAN FOOD! AMAZING! I mean, who doesn't like Ethiopian food?

Serving only local cuisine, Abyssinia 2000 also offers a cultural dance and musical entertainment. The food range is limited to local foods however there is a wine and beverage list to complement. The food seemed popular with Ethiopians, though westerners and Asians appeared less enthusiastic. The dance troupe was excellent. Recommended for the entertainment and an introduction to culture and... More

Firstly Ethiopia is safe to travel and has really friendly people. 2000 Habesha has an a la carte menu for those who are brave or knowledgeable or who have Ethiopian friends who know the ropes. The other option is a buffet type meal. We went with friends who knew the menu and chose for all of us. The food is... More

Loved the 'fasting' food, which is pureley vegetarian. The entertainment was also so much better than other places in Addis. It was not too loud and we could have conversations throughout the meal.

Great insight into Ethiopian cuisine and dances and overall setting. Ethiopian way of sitting.. surroundings.. drinks whether it is "Tej" or Coffee. The interactive dancing sessions make it even more lively... BUT this all happens during dinner time so plan accordingly..
