Addis restaurant is close to Kings Cross, but not so far from its origins. They offer good quality Ethiopian food at a reasonable price. In addition to authentic food, you also get authentic atmosphere with plenty of Ethiopian ex-pats there for a good meal too. Service was only a little slow because they were so busy the night I was there, but still very friendly. I ended up talking to 2 people from Addis Ababa at the next table. In addition to traditional foods they also offer something non-traditional ? starters. I had the sardines. Definitely not Ethiopian, but still good. They also have authentic St. George?s beer. Ask for it to be ?Kass Kazza?. That means cold! Easy to find and worth a try if you have never experienced Ethiopian food before.
Please note: This used to be called the Menelik Restaurant.

THE PRICES ON THE MENU DO NOT INCLUDE VAT! YOU NEED TO ADD 17.5% ON TOP.


Favorite Dish:
Starter: Sardines. Main: Doro Wat (Chicken and egg is a spicy hot red sauce). Washed down with some good house red wine.

Address: 40-42 Caledonian Road, London, N1 9DT
Price Comparison: less expensive than average

? Kings Cross/St. Pancras (Eurostar, Circle, Hammersmith & City, Metropolitan, Northern, Piccadilly, Victoria, national rail lines)

    Why a VAT tax on food at a restaurant?

      I looked it up. Only read a bit and got the point. WOW!

      If a restaurant did that here, no one would tolerate it. In fact in restaurants that notify customers that they include a %, usually 18% now, tip on all parties of 8 or more. If the service isn't good enough we can refuse to give that tip.

      But remember, and I used to wait tables in the USA, there is no tipping as they are paid full wages here. And the restaurant owners usually keep any tips!

      Hi, its called Injera. Its originally from Ethiopia, but not made from wheat. They have something called 'Teff'. Its a little like wheat, but almost no carbs!
