I was here with a group of friends, recently. A great experience! There is a large choice of really tasty dishes, with and without meat. Mixed dishes are available to be shared between more people, making the experience even nicer. And eating with the hands makes the dinner funnier and more characteristic! Check out also honey wine and coffee at... More

Ethiopian restaurants all over the world are generally predictably good and consistent, except this one. This was the most disappointing experience. The girl who seemed to be the only person in the restaurant could not be bothered and had no smile or warmth so typical of Ethiopians. The veg choice was more limited than usual. The ajeera bread was thick... More

Hey folks, Fasika is a traditional Ethiopian restaurant, with a good service, sufficient parking lots for cars and easy to reach with public transpotation. The atmosphere ist very calm and with quite traditional music in the background. There are so many different kinds of dishes for carnivores and herbivores ;-). We visited Fasika several times and it was always mind-blowing.... More

We have been missing Ethiopian food since arriving from London and are very glad we found this place by pure chance. Friendly service and a great selection of the most famous dishes from Ethiopia. Fantastic idea of offering large sharing plates so you can try lots of different flavours and there is an abdunce of injera (Ethiopian break/pancake for eating... More

I came to this restaurant with a friend when all other Ethiopian restaurants in the area were fully booked. This had me a bit worried - wondering why this restaurant was the only one that had space left over. There was no need to worry. The food was outstanding and the service efficient. The injera was well made (though probably... More

Went here last weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the great food they serve here. We were two persons and took a mixed plate for two which is more than enough. The plate had some lamb,beef,cheese,pickled veggies,green veggies,... The plate is beautiful served in an "ethiopian" pancake. The nice thing is that you can just eat it with your hands.... More

This is an excellent restaurant with a good varied menu. We always share various vegetarian dishes here and there are a lot of options for us, and each dish we've tried has been wonderful. You will never leave Fasika feeling hungry - the portions are extremely generous and there's plenty of great injera bread to go alongside the meal. The... More
