Average food, excellent service and attentive personnel. Unfortunately, the portions are not generous compared to other similar restaurants in Geneva.

If you want a genuine Ethio-Eritrean food experience, this is the place. The food is a bit on the spicey side, but they have a very decent selection of Ethiopian beers, and occasionally ouzou from Asmara. Worth a try!

The food tasted ok but there was nothing special to it, the price per person is exaggerated compared to the meal served.

We were a group of friends that opted for a large shared "meat platter". They managed to keep half of it spicey and were more than happy to bring out additional injera.

Exactly like the previous comments. It should be a place where there is nothing to tell about. Ok the decoration is nice but this is the only thing nice about that restaurants.

This was the fifth Eritrean/Ethiopian restaurant that I have been too, and I must say, it was rather boring in every sense. The food was a little disappointing, and the service was OK.

We love Eritrean/Ethiopian food and have tried EVERY one of them in Geneva. I can confidently say this is the best ! The ambiance is relaxed & the resto is a simple place. The tables at the back are a lot nicer & ambiance warmer. So don't be deceived by what you see up-front. We had the Meskerem Royal &... More
