    I loved in Ethiopia for 2 years and learned to cook several of the country’s signature dishes myself; Marathon was absolutely delicious and authentic.

    I would not recommend this place at all. While the main dish was quite good, the dessert was when the drama started. We ordered the baklava with ice-cream, which commonly contains pistachios. What's less common is having these pistachios covered in a furry layer of molding . When we pointed that issue out, the restaurant claimed it was 'spice'? Then, he revealed he bought it in some supermarket and that's how they are, and denied it was moldy. Furthermore, when we told him that we won't pay for a clearly moldy dessert that we didn't eat, he raged and started bragging about his ratings and saying that he doesn't need this 'kind of customers'. Also, if you are thinking of taking advantage of the fork's 50% off offer, this restaurant forces you to buy a drink even if you don't want it. Also dessert (as moldy as it was) was calculated at full price.

    There was an explanation of the meal, how we should eat it! Everything was above our expectation!

    1) 40% of discounts was not applied to all the dishes as described. 2) waited 1 hour. 3) the fit fit was supposed to be with meat, there was bread instead 4) the plate for 2 was supposed to be composed by 3 servings, only 1 was given, however they applied a little discount when we told them yet not compensating the lack and still less than the claimed 40% 5) a plastic bottle of water costed 8 FRANCS.

    My husband and I loved going to this restaurant. The food was so, so tasty and it was fun to eat it the traditional way, with the hand. We got a plate called "Marathon" with which they kept bringing over more and more warm fillings to eat with the flat dough, we actually had to ask them to stop cause we both got full haha! Definitely good price for the quality and quantity. What made the night even better was Papi's (the owner) jokes and the very welcoming staff. Recommended! Merci des Genevois !
