Friday night meal. We booked which was sensible as it filled up pretty quickly and people arriving later got turned away. We had a sharing plate with a mix of dishes on injera. Everything was delicious and well seasoned, not one dish disappointed. Portion size...More

I've eaten here twice, and 3 times in other Ethiopian restaurants. Wolkite Kitfo has much the best atmosphere: this was a wet Sunday evening and it was heaving! Friendly helpful service, despite my incompetence with one-handed injera-eating. I tried chocolate-brown Teff Injera for the first...More

The interior is basic. The 4 of us had fish, lamb tips, chicken and vegetarian variety. All really good! Meta beer is quite sweet. Service friendly but not OTT, very relaxed family atmosphere, many of the customers seemed regulars. Really enjoyed it. Amesegenalehu (?)!!

I've had this place on my radar for a while as it's consistently highly rated, and as I was at the Emirates for a match so I stopped in to eat on the way home. What an interesting experience. I love these types of places...More

We stayed nearby and decided to try Wolkite since we had never tasted Ethiopian food before and we do not have any African restaurants in our small hometown. The fellow travelers had rated this restaurant high and we can only agree. It is amazing and...More
