We went as group of 10 for my Brother-in-Law's birthday. We were so excited having heard great things. Sadly, all 10 of us were disappointed and definitely wouldn't consider going again. The food was average / unusual. However, the restaurant's staunch refusal to supply more traditional basics such as rice we found confusing and annoying. The al-fresco seating and tables... More

I have been many times in this restaurant and the quality is always excellent. Is difficult to find consistency in a restaurant in Dar. The place is so beautiful, romantic and authentic. The good is just heaven and really cheap. Very kind and prepared staff. I really recommend this place!

Place is situated close shoppers plaza and offers excellent Ethiopian food and ambience. Please do not wear shorts or capri while visiting as its open place and you might be bitten by mosquitoes,although staff is very friendly and would for sure give you mosquito repellent incase they see you troubled. You must try the veg/non veg platter which is good... More

The food, service and ambience was fantastic. After several visits to the restaurant, one does nothing tire of the menu or the mix of flavours. Chilled, relaxed atmosphere set the tome for a great meal. Should be top of the list for every visitor to Dar.

For the lovers of spicy food, Addis should be your first eating-out spot to visit when in Dar. Their meat and seafood well marinated, vegans dishes too. The injera (chapati made of rice) is also my favorite, I've literally been to this place more than 15 times with zero disappointment in food and prices too!!! Best restaurant in dar so... More

Good food, if you enjoy Injera and other typical Ethiopian dishes, which we did, a lot :) not the most authentic experience, but ok prices for good food, nice decoration, good service. You'll meet Dar's expats there.

Addis in Dar serves excellent Ethiopian food but again is very conjusted. You usually have to eat dinner in a complete blackout because they only offer a lamp to provide some light. The prices are not that reasonable but it is worth spending that amount of money for excellent service and food.
