She has shifted base it is now Sip n Lip Lounge on Tiara right behind Junction. New improved space and think she learnt a lot while running Sabrina! Beats most places in area, nice mature crowd, bands!

I love Ethiopian food and Sabrina's is one of the best. Thank goodness the restaurant is near my home. I no longer have to go to Big Mac's in Eastleigh to get my regular fix of ethiopian. The food is freshly prepared, authentic and finger licking good. Love the mixed dish - shiro is my favorite, and the tibs -... More

A friend recommended this restaurant. We showed up last Sunday and it appeared closed. There were two signs out by the road. But the sign on the gate was down. The gate was open so we entered hoping to find someone. There were no signs of a business being there. The building had large windows and there was nothing inside.... More

I was appalled at the behavior of the owners at this restaurant. Sat at the restaurant having to listen to the owner yelling (rudely) at a supplier that had come to ask for payment. The owner (Sabrina) was literally shouting in front of clients saying she was not going to pay. What happened to handling business matters in private? I... More

The food was better than average. The staff friendly, but the service was slow. Very slow. Fortunately, we had a lot of time. The environment modest. For smokers, they have "sheesha." And they have a bar.

Despite a friendly staff and best efforts at interior, the experience was tainted by long waiting times and tv blasting in the livingroom/bar. The place is basically a house turned into a restaurant and it lacked professionalism. Only could pay cash or m-pesa.

Nice and small restaurant, very cosy and food was good. Great for groups and just to hang out, you could even rent out the place if you have an event. Well kept secret.
