This was a fun place to go for a buffet dinner with traditional food, as well as live music and dancing! Pleasant, friendly vibe and good for groups. Worth going to if you just have a few nights in Addis to check it out.

Very touristy but great food, great atmosphere and good service in Ethiopia. It's a safe choice and we tried to go back but did not have the opportunity.

Now they have changed the style to buffet but they have not setup a table. Everyone needs to put the plate on the legs looks like a laptop computer. And we have to be very careful not to overturn it. We come to a cultural restaurant and we expect eat it the traditional way, please do not give us knives and folks.

At Habesha 2000 (as locals call it), one will have a good "authentic" experience. The music was very good. The environment was nice. The food was a little disappointing. Most of the meat was tough and inedible. The service horribly slow and ineffective. Although at least a dozen or more servers were standing and talking, it was extremely difficult to get their attention. (Although there were only 3 tables of customers when we arrived. They took off and forgot to bring menus. The meal took at least an hour for preparation and delivery. I had to chase servers for the bill. All in all it was a good experience, but not good enough to repeat.

What a great way to spend my first night in Ethiopia. They dragged me on stage for the wedding ceremony and then I got to dance with some of the main performers. The food is good, even the buffet and although a little pricer than other restaurants in tr area, it is well worth it.
