My experience with Ethiopian food has always been "great, but expensive!" so I was very pleasantly surprised when I looked at the menu for Addis. Everything was very reasonably priced and there were far more options for vegans/vegetarians than usual--which is saying a lot since a lot of Ethiopian food is naturally vegan/vegetarian. Addis also tries out some experimental dishes... More

Wonderful place with great service. The portions are HUGE! We ordered the Addis combo and it says it's for 2 but in our case it's good for 4! There prices are cheap for what you get and they are fast, fun and friendly. What else could you ask for ? Enjoy!

This is my favorite Ethiopian restaurant. The food here is great and the appearence and taste of the food is the same as the way the last owners made it. I like there veggy combo and chicken tibbs. They kept the same style in the way they make chicken tibbs. Pan fried chicken with a light texture of crispiness on... More

We do not have Ethiopian restaurants where I am from so we decided to give it a try. We got the combo plate and it was more than enough food. I don't like eating food with my hands but my husband loved it since he's always doing it no matter what he eats. My husband thought the food was delicious.... More

We are 2 Ethiopian food novices who decided to try one of our many local Ethiopian restaurants. First plus is the parking lot. Second is that it is very light, with lots of windows, and nicely decorated. Now to the food. We decided to try 2 dishes, Yesga Wot (beef in very tasty spices) and Yesega Alicha (lamb cubes simmered... More

Atmosphere was nice and service was good but food was just average. Our first experience with Ethiopian food was in Washington DC and we loved it. So on our trip to Oakland we thought we would give it a try. The portions at Addis was heaping and way more than we needed. But to me the food was just average... More

This place is part of a family tradition! Every time our family is all in town we go here. We fly from half way around the world for it! The food is delicious and affordable. Great for sharing and socializing. We plan to go again when we are back in December!

I love Ethiopian food. This place is just the best. And it has something for everyone. Whether you like vegetarian, meat or fish, they have good tasting food for all. They recently did a minor renovation of the restaurant. It looks nice, but not gentrified.

My family members are all fans of Ethiopian food, so when we realized there was a restaurant within walking distance of where we were staying in Rockridge, we made a plan. The outside of the building looks a bit seedy, but the inside is very comfortable and nicely decorated. We had the combination platter for 4, which was generous, delicious,... More

Well, I went to another (unnamed) Ethiopian restaurant last night, and was reminded again how much better Addis is than any other ETH. Restaurants in the area. Any of the Tibs are great, the veggie combo dish is a great value and easy for those new to this food type. Have never had anything less than very good food here,... More
