CUISINE CONVIVIALE - Ici, on déguste ses petits plats avec les doigts ! Samboussa, tartare de bœuf éthiopien, émincé d'agneau au poivre exotique ou cuisses de poulet au paprika, tous ces mets épicés sont servis sur l’anjera, la fameuse crêpe à partager avec toute la tablée.

Very good! 2 minute walk from Riponne parking. Took the tasting menu. Good value anyway but with the Fork discount was even better. Tried St. George Ethiopian beer. Very good too. A bit like Cobra Indian beer.

We chose the set menu. The starter was a very nice samosa. Desert was a scoop of vanilla ice cream with fresh fruits. The main dish was an average combination of peas, beans, a little meat and plenty of the fermented flat bread in which to role up the other food stuffs. What was very poor in our experience was the service. We waited 20 min for the starter and another 40 min for the main dish. That was disappointing given that the main dish only needed to be plated. The dish was prepared for the majority of the guests and needed no 40 mins to be served.

Service at the table was really slow and not very amicable. Quality of the food was good, but cold when it arrived at our table. Nice portions though.
I wouldn't go there on a week-end night when it is packed and the staff is a bit overwhelmed by the demand.
