Lovely ambience that gives one a taste of the Ethiopian Culture, Music, Food in a warm and comfortable environment of privacy. People sitting in little groups around the well painted tables and low chairs.... well the rest is for you to explore...

The food , the service, and atmosphere make for a very enjoyable evening at Addis. The restaurant in on a rooftop and just adds to a fun environment. The food is the best Ethopian food one can find. We will definitely go back !!
