Traditional restaurant with live show. Food is ok but not as delicious as Yod Abyssinia. Spacious and well illuminated. Good service.

The owner of Boundless Ethiopia took us here. What a treat! Good Ethiopian food and drink (make sure to try the honey wine, tej). Outstanding dancing and music, with dances from all corners of the country. Best we saw in Ethiopia. We returned for a second visit at the end of our tour. You can visit without eating if you...

Great local food, nice atmosphere, and nice staff. It is best to very this place at night, because it is so much better at this time. Visited this place with my friends and we had a blast.

Went during the day, so there was no shows/performers goin on, so might be better during evenings when they do those. Anyways, great local food, nice atmosphere, and nice staff.

Gives a good taste of Ethiopian culture - music, food and dance. Food buffet available but we opted to try out the fasting injera (visited during Easter). Good food and good atmosphere.

The food was good, so was the service and the entertainment was interesting. To be done at least once while you are in Addis Ababa

We ate here on our last night of our Ethiopian tour with our guide and driver. We did wonder if it was meant for tourist (which is is in part) but about half the diners were Ethiopians. The music was Ethiopian and the dancing represented tribal dances from different parts of the country according to our guides. The dancers were... More

Very good atmosphere. I was there last night. But not as great as Yod Abbysinia which I went to the night before. They had a buffet of local food which was good except that some foods were cold but that is how locals eat some of the food. I recommend this place on friday or saturday

I visited Habesha two nights back with friends. Security greeted us at the door. The room was not what I expected- a lot of low tables and rather unstable chairs in a large room. Service was prompt. We chose to eat off the buffet for around 320 birr. There was quite a variety of Ethiopian fare which was tasty. The... More

An enormous room/hall full of low tables and stools, a little crowded. Food was great - we had a selection of dishes served with injera, very tasty. The singing and dancing was spirited and very entertaining, very skilled performers. A wonderful night.
