About the restaurant Addis Ababa

Little Ethiopia in Amsterdam

Restaurant Addis Ababa puts Ethiopia on the map of Amsterdam. This restaurant is named after the capital of Ethiopia and in style with the culinary traditions. Eating is a social activity. In this African country, eating with the right hand of injera is a habit. Injera looks like a large pancake, which you tear off a piece. Then you grab with this piece of injera vegetables, fish or meat. Mmm, delicious!

The food was nice but it didn't particularly blow my mind, and it wasn't all that cheap. Nonetheless, it was still a very enjoyable experience thanks to good service and a pleasant mood.

Another great evening at this lovely restaurant! Together with 3 of my collegues we decided to go for Ethiopian diner. So I reserved a table here, since I really enjoyed it the first time. One of our little group had his Birthday and the owner of the restaurant helped me decorating the table when I arrived. They were a bit delayed so while waiting, I got a super nice lentil soup on the house as a surprise, which was soo nice! We ordered a large injera full of mixed veggies and meats. Everyone of us loved it! When we ordered dessert they surprised our bday man with a cake and candles including a bday- song loudly played in the restaurant ???????????? Price/Quality is amazing and it is such a relaxing, easy going place to enjoy diner!

Absolutely DELICIOUS food. One of us had fish, one had meat and I was able to ask for one of the veggie options to be made vegan which was no problem at all. The food was incredible, very reasonably priced and the portion size was ideal. Only down side was that service was quite slow despite it being quiet when we arrived and so the atmosphere also wasn’t great. The quality of the food, however, far outweighed any negatives and I cannot express in words how amazing the food was.

Great cozy environment (most were clearly regulars!) and food was simply delicious, with a tinge of home cooked food!

Eating here is like being welcomed into the home of our Ethiopian friends. After eight years of living in Addis Ababa, I crave the flavoursome food, the gorgeous coffee ceremony aromas, and the smiles, and last night it didn’t disappoint. I first enjoyed eating here in 2005 and will return every time I visit Amsterdam. Thank you!

Everything was fantastic. The food was delicious and the owners were wonderful and especially accommodating to the children in our group. We have been here before and will definitely go again. The menu is a little confusing for ordering with a large group but otherwise no complaints.

I had diner with a friend at this place yesterday evening. There are a couple of Ethiopian places in Amsterdam, but with the best ratings and checking with friends, we decided to go here. Upon arrival they had a lovely cosy terrace outside and a table was ready for us. The lovely lady served us so nicely and gentle. The table next to us had a great Djerba full of food allready so we decided to order the vegetarian version. Wow!!! Sooo nice! We love to share and take it easy, and they let you do that. Great option for vegans and veggie by the way. Ethiopian coffee as dessert served in the traditional way, made the evening perfect! On top of that price/quality is amazing. So even on a low budget a greatp place to go!

The food was very good. The two staff, a man and woman were wonderful and very sweet. The restaurant is small and filled very quickly so I am very glad that they took a reservation. Overall a wonderful experience!!!

This was my first Ethiopian restaurant experience ever. Though I had no reference point to compare the food with, the decor, the dishes, and the presentation of the food more than made up for it - It was the most authentic feeling I could have imagined of the cuisine. The portions were quite enough! I went for a vegetarian platter which was a combination of all the vegetarian dishes available. All the portions we ordered (3, which was more than sufficient for 4 of us at the table) came in a HUGE plate that was partitioned into 3 dishes with salad-made borders - excellent presentation indeed!

Oh, and yeah, to get the actual feeling of being in Addis Ababa, it is highly recommended that you eat with your hands! ;-)

The food is good here but I ve had better.
Minchet Abish was great but the meat wasnt minced enough and I didnt enjoy the chunky texture of the dish at all.
Doro wat and other accompaniments of lentil, salad,veggies, ingeera were great.
My friend had one of the ethipoian beers served in a coconut shell and he loved it - the beer and the shell both! :)
The service was great and friendly and the ambience is basic.
This may not be a big deal to many but I like a little more cleanliness - dont get me wrong - the restaurant is clean n all but the cushion on my chair had stains and marks and trust me, I didnt enjoy sitting on it.

We came here with a Groupon and we were very pleased. Injera was delicious and generous and it can be a lot of fun when dining with a group of friends. Service was attentive and friendly. The beer selection was good. The deco was gezellig, very cozy and just simple. We will definitely come back.
