I love this place. I have to stop myself from going every single weekend. I can't have enough of Injera. The atmosphere is very friendly, the service is very quick and the food is great value for money. I love that the coffee comes with popcorn 😊.

This was my first taste of Ethiopian food and I had no idea what to expect. My daughter loves the restaurant and booked a table near the open fire which added a magical touch to the evening.

They had only 2 fish dishes, which only one was African - tilapia! Are you guys serious, I can eat Tilapia on the road here.... More

My visit was short but interesting as an attempt of diversifying my cultural knowledge. I loved the outdoor sitting among green and clean vegetation. The 'ubani' at the table was not welcoming for me because of my sensitivity to smoke. The gift shop with the Ethiopian fabric was good and I definitely plan a go back to get some of... More

Habesha is a family favorite (Despite the fact that my kids started out looking at me like 'you're kidding, right? Now they cant get enough, especially of the beets and the shiro.) The food is consistent and tasty, the prices are very fair. They have Ambo, which is a favorite spring water from Ethiopia (though usu not the Ethiopian beer...)... More

Had dinner here with several business associates. Enjoyed the food and the laid back atmosphere. Service was good, and the prices were very reasonable. Best Ethiopian food I have had outside Ethiopia!

my first Ethiopian food experience... was very tasty, however the next few days I was suffering from intense food poisoning. I would return, but haven't brought myself to do so just yet!
