I decided to spend New Year's Eve at Sheraton having Italian food but the place was completely booked so Shaheen was my second option. I do not regret it. In Addis Ababa you can have decent Italian food in more than one place but not Indian and this is by far one of the best Indian restaurants I have visited... More

The food is OK, hard to get them to get the food spicy enough. My food came out very cold and rubbery. Service was very slow considering I was practically alone. Funny because the hostess sat me right next (sharing same bench) as the only other occupied table. I was shocked with the bill because of the extra charges, VAT,... More

The curries were obviously prepared by a very skilled chef but all 3 were so spicy that I could not eat them. The waiter did not ask whether we wanted our food spicy. The curries should be prepared to be edible, or the waiter should ask to alert people and give them the option to have their food milder. I... More

Two couples ordered 4 different curries which we shared and thoroughly enjoyed. There is a variety of sambals, chutneys and other side dishes available. Well worth a visit if you enjoy curries as there are not any other options available. World class food and service.

My friend and I had the pleasure of eating at Shaheen during the Ethiopian Art Show. Every dish we got was amazing and flavorful. However, by Ethiopian standards, this was a very expensive meal for two people (2800ETB/$140 USD). Definitely a special occasion restaurant.

Shaheen is costly - but the experience is lovely and unique. The setting is intimate and great for a special date, its small and upscale, quiet and well appointed. We had the lamb rogengosh and butter chicken with garlic naan. All was lovely and more than enough for the two of us. Definitely recommend, though good quality cheaper Indian places... More

Ate here several times during my stay. It's the best restaurant in the hotel but everything is spicy so beware. It's Indian food in case you didn't know. The service is great and the resaurants is never to busy for dinner. Enjoy.

My wife ate at Stagioni last year and was anxious to return to the Sheraton. We had a good meal but left feeling a bit disappointed. The menu is diverse and overall the food was good (with one excellent dish, one disappointing, and two average). Service was clearly not up to par. Our waiter started out very enthusiastic then just... More
