Are you changing planes in Addis Ababa and have one night? Eat here!
Why here? Well, it’s close to the airport off Bole Rd, it has excellent Ethiopian food and a live music/dance show every night at 8pm. If you want to see waitresses dressed in the different tribal clothes of Ethiopia and dancers performing varied tribal dances (and in outfits), then this is the place for you. I could not believe what great value this place was for entertainment, quality & quantity of food and some great Tej! This is a fantastic night out and a real flavour of the diversity of Ethiopia. You get a magnificent music and cultural show at no extra charge!
It also has a good vegetarian menu.
Please note: Haile Gabriel Selassie (fastest Marathon runner in history) eats here (pictured). He even signed my guidebook!
