Very nice place, with a lot of handicrafts from Eritrea, where food is quite good (gommen was a little acid though), even if not enough "tipical" for who like me has been living in Ethiopia for some time. But overall very decent in an European/Italian context. Waiters and bosses are kind and smily. We didn't wait too long.
Very disappointing instead was the "jabena bunna", traditional coffee, was not far from just hot water ("sostegna bunna yemeslal"). Just put more coffee!!!!
Definetily not a cheap place, I would say not far from being a little bit too expensive.

Fine food and relaxing atmosphere. We really enjoyed a good evening. We liked it very much and we'd like to go there again. One of most good african food in Roma.

After eating pasta & pizzas for days, it was refreshing to have authentic Ethiopian cuisine. They were very hospitable and the menu portions were healthy.

Probably the best eritrean restaraunt in Rome. Guest can have dinner in nearby garden in summer. I reccomend Tibsi!
