This place is good for large groups and entertaining for all. The performance is in one of the languages spoken in Ethiopia (not Amharic). So unless you have a translater, you can only guess what's going - but it's entertaining. The food was good and since it was fasting season, a vegetarian buffet was provided. I suggest trying this place at least once for the food and entertainment.

I can highly recommend Totot for it's good genuine Ethiopian food. Big nice place that offers a nice show with musicians and dansers. Almost only local people on the sunday night where we went, in fact beside me and my Kenyan friend, only an asian girl was the only tourist in this restaurant. We opted for 2 dishes and1liter of good Tej and it was delicious. And far too much. We could have done with less. But great experience and has to be tried.

Nice and well-kept restaurant serving nicely prepared injera wot!
Lots to choose from and nice service.
On the downside, they have no fresh juices to drink. Also, in the evenings there is traditional music and dance performance which is nice but way too loud to speak comfortably with friends. They could use some more private corners in the restaurant to give some calm to those who want to talk.
Still, a really nice place for a genuine Ethiopian meal. Try it out!

Set inside a really big traditional structure, it features low tables facing the stage. We went on a Monday night and there were a number of Ethiopian families and 2-3 tables of foreigners. Servers were very friendly and helpful, helping us understand the menu and pick what we wanted to try. The portions were humongous.

There was a live band and dancers, but it wasn't so loud as to be overwhelming (we sat away from the stage). It's a little pricey, likely for the "show" aspect, but not over the top. I've never been to the other popular traditional restaurants to compare.

Totot's is an Ethiopian cultural restaurant with a very nice cuisine specializing in local dishes and drinks. We ordered tibs (deep fried beef), teb (a honey wine like mead), and injera an Ethiopian staple. The food was very tasty and of much higher quality than that found in most Ethiopian restaurants. As there is an evening floor show, the prices shift significantly around 7:00 pm. If you are there for the food, then noon and before 7:00 pm might appeal to your budget.
