If you are in the Vondel Park area, please come and give this place a go. The restaurant is small and cosy, and the owners are very welcoming. We had the mixed platter and the spicy minced beef platter. I'm not sure if platter is the right word but the food came out on big plates, on a bed of... More

This restaurant is little outside of the normal tourist areas but served wonderful food and is not expensive. Most people looking for something different typically look for Indonesian restaurants while in Amsterdam. But if your are tired of that but still want to try something other than standard tourist fare you should consider Ethiopian. And this place is a good... More

This place is SO real. I have been to Ethiopia several times, and I can easily say that this place is the real thing. Food is amazing, staff is a real nice family always ready to help you and help you to choose amongst the beautiful things they have to offer. The environment is familiar and cosy, it is not... More

The great encounter for me with the Ethiopian food happened for me at this amazing restaurant in the heart of Amsterdam. The food was "epic" and there were a lot of options both vegetarian and non vegetarian. The owner of the restaurant is one of the most friendly person that I have come across. All in all a great place.... More

My wife and I have been coming here since we moved to Amsterdam in early 2014. The food is amazing and being a family business the service is extremely friendly. We always bring guests visiting Amsterdam knowing that we are never let down. My wife also has an allergy to gluten, with advance notice they are happy to accommodate.

The food was delicious, serving sizes large, and the service was fast and friendly. The prices were reasonable and comparable to similar restaurants in the vicinity. They also give you plentry of extra enjera ( spongy bread) - important detail!

We walked into the terrace of this cozy restaurant after spending a nice and sunny evening in the Vondelpark , we had never tried ethiopian food, but just as we stood there an enormous dish was being served on the terrace to 3 other guests, and that looked so great that we wanted to try that too. We had the... More

The concept of this place is very nice. You share your food with pancakes that you tear off and use to eat from the different dishes. Problem is, the food is not consistent. Ate here several times and sometimes it's ok and other times it can be so so. The décor is very nice. Colorful and bright. Would go again... More
