I came here with a large business group. We were offered a buffet, which was tasty and plentiful. The service was friendly, with a lively and fun atmosphere. The cultural show was quite entertaining. I would gladly return.

My first time in Ethiopia, worth going there to try the food and watch some artists performing. Food was ok but experience made the day.

Other tgan the cultural show, the food is over rated and utterly costly. We asked for a chicken dish, it came with one small piece of chicken. Not worth going there.

Should be visited once if traveling for first time to Ethiopia... good number of cultural dance and songs... we had injera and it was nice. Nice place, mostly crowded with tourists.

Its on the way to Airport had dinner before taking off to India. The food tasted something different (not continental or Mediterranean or Asian) but was good. The brown rolls they served, I thought would taste like Indian dosa, but they have their distinctive taste....More

The best oreintal restaurant in Addis Ababa. It is a very good experience that I recommend, Take care all the food is Ethiopian original food so if you're picky think twice but you can go to enjoy the show music dancing The ambiance is wonderful.

We enjoyed the traditional Ethiopian platter and beer while watching the dancers/singers at this restaurant/nightclub. Very busy with tourists and locals alike. Definitely go to soak up the atmosphere...

Hello Mncedisi, from year to year there may be small changes but it will be safe if you prepare for 350 to 400 birr which in today's exchange rate equals around 14 USD. Have a nice time in Addis!

By now you should know that they do serve vegetarian food. Try beyanetu which is eating during fasting period and consists of injera with various vegetarian wot and fresh vegetables.
