Four of us went there Friday night. The service was quick despite the restaurant being full, and the food was delicious and plentiful. I've eaten Ethiopian a lot in many different cities and this is by far one of the best restaurants due to the...More

I had huge expectations coming with friends who love this restaurant and Ethiopian food. Service was slow and the group room drafty. I have quite an appetite and was hardly filled by the pancakes and the vegetables/meat portions (but Ethiopians are probably used to eat...More

Amazing tastes and a very nice welcome characterize this place. The price is worth the food, and considering it is in Geneva, it is totally acceptable. Strongly suggested!
