A good place to have a view of local handicraft and local art. As a restaurant they do not offer typical Ethiopian cookery, but you can taste food well prepared. Very good the salads and the soups, not bad the meats; there is also a good choice of wines even if not wide selection. Recommended.

Our family quite enjoyed our lunch at Makush. The service is friendly and fast. The spinach salad is to die for. It is nice to spend time perusing the artwork, though we didn't buy any, we never felt pressured to purchase. I wish we would have sat by the windows as the views of the street below would have been entertaining to the children while enjoying the tasty Italian fare. The portions are large. Our twin sons, 5 years old, were able to split a portion of pasta and there was pizza left after our 11-year old had her fill. After the divine spinach salad, I couldn't quite finish my pasta primavera either. If we lived in Ethiopia, Mukash would be on our list of regular restaurants.

It's an Italian Restaurant/Art Gallery. A good place to go if you are looking for some paintings. The food is okay. It's definitely worth trying.

Gallery-wise, some pieces are quite good and out of the normal deep dark colors of African art. One has to have patience to peruse all of what is available before you eat.

Order the spinach salad, stick to the pastas... and you will fare better. Pizza is acceptable.
Dessert - I would go for the fresh fruit salad...

The food was terrible, and took forever. I like in Africa so am accustomed to waiting, but we were th eonly customers and it still took well over an hour. My meal was inedible. The service was slow (despite, again, that we were the only table), and the paintings were ok but not very original.
