    Restaurant looks nicer in real life than on the pictures, food is great, and so is the service. The restaurant is well located too, close to the metro system.

    Good food and fun to eat.... we tried 'la degustation' we had 3 services and it was mostly vegetarian. Not a fan of the 'galettes' but a must try experience.

    The vegetarian food was delicious. Pricing wise a bit too expensive to come for regular meals, but for a special Occasion great!

    This was not the first time in this restaurant. In general, there is a good atmosphere, the staff is kind and the food is good. This time was not like this, with a almost empty restaurant, we had to ask 3 times to have water and napkins. The normal basic service was not there... and the food was not great. With so many Ethiopian restaurants in Lausanne, we won’t return To this one.

    we were really disappointed by the quality of the service...(and surprised, given that the previous times we went was good) – also the food seemed like old/reheated...

    We tried this restaurant taking the -50% deal offered by The Fork. To our surprise, the full menú was not available, as opposed to what was advertised. Only the degustation menu was available, so we could not choose. The restaurant was quite full, but there was only one waitress. She was doing her best, but we had to wait long for being sited, taken the order and served. The food was OK but was not what we expected. I only wanted chicken, but the set menu was mainly beef and lentils. The dessert was also fixed and it came with pineapple, which I’m allergic to, so I could not eat it. The highlight was the coffee, it was really good.

    Lovely and welcoming staff. The food was excellent and a really great value with the Fork discount. The lamb, samosas, and Ethiopian coffee were great. Highly recommend.

    - Authentic look & feel: You can choose between traditional seats and table or for those who prefer the regular chairs & tables. - The food also came in traditional plates and tasted really good, definitely something we want to experience again
