My kids are all vegetarians and we often eat Ethiopian food since it is vegetarian friendly. We stumbled upon Godjo and found a treasure! The restaurant is very small and quaint. The staff was friendly, the service was great and the food was spectacular! We...are going back again for our next meal! If you like Ethiopian food and/or vegetarian food and don’t mind eating with your hands.....Godjo is a must!More

Wonderful place, small and friendly. The food is better than you can expect, Spicy enough. The kind of food that you need for your soul.

A chance discovery, never had Ethiopian food before so thought we'd give it a try, a memorable experience as part of my first trip to Paris - delicious food, enchanting atmosphere. Well worth a visit but do book it is very bijou and very busy....the waitresses were very sweet and it was very relaxed.More

The small translucid worm could be seen clearly wiggling. Taste was not bad but seeing that cut our appetite

The place is tiny! there are 3 tables upstairs and 3 downstairs. Necessary to book! Food was good (we took the mixed platter). We had wine and I think we were the first one in a while to order wine! the reaction of the waitress...was priceless!More

I went there with a few friends to get a dinner in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We got a table in the room downstairs that was perfectly suitable for these needs: relaxed and friendly. We ordered a vegetarian dinner with a selection of four...different dishes, as well as a good bottle of wine to accompany our meal. We were very pleased by the food (one eats it with a special bread and with our fingers, as in all Ethiopian restaurants I have visited so far), that was perfectly flavoured. Honestly, I was a bit scared by the negative TripAdvisor comments I have read on the place, but those seem not to be appropriate. The waiter was very kind, although it is true the service could have been a little bit faster. The price were very reasonable, especially for this area of Paris (many other restaurant options around are much more expensive). To summarize, this was a very nice experience and I will definitely come back!More

The meat in the dishes is not of a good quality: plenty of bones and not chewable pieces, chicken too fat... Apart from that the overall taste of the food is very nice due to a lot of spices. Very sharp glass corners of the...table!!! My daughter cut herself in it....More

This is a tiny place with genuine food. That means you eat from one big place with all the entries on it either with your fingers or using pieces of spongy bread. (They will supply forks and knives if you need them). We came early...630pm and were some of the first - by 830pm it was packed. Food was good, tasty and plentiful. Many vegetarian options. Service was not fast and got really slow when crowded, but was a fine place to eat slowly, so this wasn't a problem for us.More

We were in Paris for only four days and we always seek out the Ethiopean restaurants when we travel. Godjo's preparation of standard dishes was subtly but delightfully unique. I love little side street places like this that abide by their cultural heritage. With all...the great restaurants in Paris, had my girlfriend not insisted on exploring more, I'd have eaten at Godjo several times during our 4 nights in Paris.More

Looking for something different in Paris. Tired of the same French dishes every night. Here is a walk in the wild side. Had a nice dinner here last night. Ordered chicken in a spicy Ethiopian sauce. It came on a plate in a nice basket...with the chicken presented on a crape that was strange but good. Sauce was knock your socks off. My tissue was busy keeping my nose in check. Sauce was hot as I wanted but it didn’t burn. It was really good. Service on the other hand was a mess. The place is very small but the two gals doing the serving couldn’t keep up. My food was delivered with no utensils to eat with. Got a fork but no knife or napkin. Would I go back? Yes. Food was very good and price was reasonable. Hopefully they will get the service under control.More
