This place represents fabulous value, delicious food and superb service. We called in here by chance and were very impressed. They provided authentic tastes of Ethiopian cuisine and culture. We were served by the most cheerful, helpful and informative gentleman you could wish to meet. Thanks.

Noticed this place had good reviews and never having tried Ethiopian food we thought we would give it a go - we weren't disappointed. This is not 'fine dining' but good tasty food in what is little more than a café. Service was excellent and friendly and price was very reasonable - Ethiopian beer at £2 per bottle was a... More

I visited Habesha with a friend for a late lunch. It was our first time trying Ethiopian food but as Habesha has been recommended to us by a number of people we knew we were to expect something special. From the outside, its quite easy to miss the restaurant as it is situated on the first floor, above a unrelated... More

This is a gem of a place for dinner, but it's upstairs so make sure yiu don't miss it! If you've had ethiopian food before it won't be anything new to you, but if you haven't yiu must go! It's fun to eat with your hands, and the meats are very nicely spiced. The veggie dishes are also good. Finally... More

The entrance of the restaurant is somewhat hidden, it's the spiral staircase in the fastfood restaurant. The service was very friendly, explained to us how to eat traditional. We ate lamm and chicken and the food was very tasty! The price was very moderate. I highly recommend the restaurant and I'll be back. Thank you for the good dinner

Having never eaten Ethiopian food before was excited to try this place. The food was excellent, filling and completely unlike anything I've had before. Service was good and we were given advice on how to eat it. Also it was excellent value - £6.50 for a meal. would definitely recommend

Came here last month, hadn't eaten an Ethiopian (meal) before. Food was simple but good. Had a soup type thing with lamb in it, accompanied by lemon flavoured pancakes. Food was good, as was the Beer that came with it. Very good price, £18 for 2 of us, including scoops. The waiter who served us was cheery throughout, and very... More

It's an odd/quirky, little spot, not easy to find...at the back of Chorlton St Bus Station, on the edge of the Gay Village, on a corner, upstairs. The entrance is via s spiral staircase through a Turkish cafe/takeaway on the ground floor. Nothing flash about it. While I've experienced better Ethiopian food in Africa - most recently in Kampala (Uganda)... More
