Quite surprising, the presentation, the dishes and experiencing Ethiopian food for the first time. I recommend you to choose the menu for two of Ethiopian delicacies. It makes you really want to travel there.

We stumbled across this restaurant during a weekend break in Helsinki. As much as I enjoyed the fish dishes in Helsinki, this was by far my favourite meal of the trip. I had the vegetarian lentil dishe which was absolutely delicious: very rich, slow cooked...More

I lived in Ethiopia years ago and know what´s good Ethiopian food is. This is very good authentic food in a more or less authentic atmosphere. This is the only Ethiopian restautant in Helsinki and I´m happy every time I eat there.

We tried the menu for 3 persons, and weren't quite satisfied with the size of the meal. The sauces were decent tasting but not special, while two of us considered the bread (Injera) a bit odd in taste and texture, which is of course subject...More

There is seldom anymore a completely new world of tastes for me. Can't understand why I never found Ethiopian food before. From the first time I tried injera I was addicted and I return at least once a month if I get the chance. Sure,...More
