We love Ethiopian food & Nyala doesn't disappoint. The atmosphere is cozy & comfortable. The owner is extremely friendly. We always order the Nyala Royal & it is delicious. Lately we've been going about once a week. Just can't get enough!

You need just to enter the restaurant and you are already in Etiopia. The furnishing is typical Ethiopian and you can take a seat on a very comfortable sofa. There is traditional African music and the place is frequented by many Ethiopians. The owner is very friendly and the food is fresh and very tasty. I can strongly recomand the chicken with lemon. It is worth a visit if you are in Geneve

We normally used to go to Addis Abeba behind the train station for Ethiopian/Eritrean food but the owner unfortunately closed that restaurant. We were suggested by Eritrean friends to try Nyala instead and weren't disappointed. It's in a small street just off Planpalais, with a small terrasse. We ate inside, there is one area with comfortable couches and sofas and another with more traditional tables and chairs. The food is amazing (we had the Royal Nyala plate which has a little bit of everything they have). Very nice owner/waiter, friendly service. The food is really tasty, and perhaps even better than we were used to at Addis. You have to be comfortable with eating with your hands (that goes for all Ethiopean and Eritrean food), but you won't regret trying this place. We'll definitely be back!
