“Great experience with no cutlery!”
Reviewed 23 February 2013 via mobile

This is a wonderful experience if you are looking for something a bit different. We ordered a platter for four people to try lots of different Ethiopian dishes. You break off the soft pancake like bread and eat pick up the food with it. We welcomed the warm relaxed atmosphere as it was still snowing outside. Staff were not over friendly but neither were they rude they were just very busy and efficient. Would definitely recommend

“Excellent African food. Always!”
Reviewed 31 January 2013

This is a place we love to go to again and again. Food is consistently very good. Sharing the same big plate with your family and friends and eating with fingers is a very nice experience. The staff is always very very nice, also very welcoming for kids. This is a very popular place in Munich. It is almost always full. Be sure to give them call before you go. We also try to get there early (7pm) to be sure to order before the big crowds.

“A very pleasant experience”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

First time for me in an Ethiopian restaurant and I have to admit that the food and drink very way better than expected! Service and location are very good, man people so better to reserve in advance the table. We had a mix of raw meat!cheese with spinach, goat goulash and vegetable dishes with honey wine as drink. All excellent and at a very reasonable price. I will definitely go again to try out some other dishes :)

“my first Ethiopian encounter”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

what I liked was sharing of food..no matter if you are two or a group of five..u can order a platter with delicious veg and non-veg dishes served with unlimited bread "injer" and this accompanied by african red wine is a perfect combination..u will leave the place with your stomach more than full if you like to food
