My girlfriend and I only discovered Abyssinia this year and it was a nice surprise. I don't drink coffee but she really loved hers and said it was the best she had in Gaborone. We had beef and chicken injera and I can confirm that...More

The first time i tasted the injera and the lentil sauce it just blew me.. The right sourness and condiments for it. Just yummm.. I so miss this restaurant. Nobody should leave gaborone without tasting their injera..

However, I haven't tried their Ethiopean food, which is what you are supposed to go there for. I just had sandwiches for lunch with a friend and they were pretty average. Other people love it there, I am told.

If you like coffee, then this is a "must go". Check out when toe roaster is in operation, you best smell it when walking nearby, then don't make the mistake of passing without entering. I guarantee you won't leave it at "one only" coffee, even...More

This little spot, tucked away on the outside southeast corner from the main part of the mall looks like a simple coffee shop. The coffee is amazing, but it is far surpassed by the main attraction: injera with fish, vegetables, lamb, beef, or chicken. Each...More
