I found them listed as a hidden gem. I hadn't tried Ethiopian food in about 15 years. It was about time. Bonna Anne is a small (8-9 tables) no frills restaurant which lets the food do the talking. Its not easy to find. Its tucked away towards the back of a building so do use your GPS. I was alone... More

I am having trouble typing this review because my belt is sticking out too much, I had too much food! A great big plater of vegetarian delight, freshly cooked and served with big bright smiles. You wanna try Ethiopian food while in Abu Dhabi? It might be your only option, but that's a great one.

I'll be going back here. There's a saying that if the locals eat at a restaurant then it must be good. Well this restaurant is certainly the epitome of that statement. Do yourself a favour and eat here. The price for the meal was so cheap I couldn't believe it.

Break away from the traditional and visit Bonna Anne for some really good Ethiopian cuisine and friendly service. It's certainly not one of your fancy restaurants, but the food is authentic and the place always bussing with Ethiopians as well as other nationalities. If you are new to Ethiopian food, ask for some suggestions from the staff. I love the... More

My first visit to this hotel along with my daughter and her friends and their parents. The restaurant is not very big and cannot accommodate more than about 30 people at any time. The food preparation is excellent and authentic. The helpings are very generous and well served by very courteous and smiling staff. My first experience with Ethiopian cuisine... More

Incredible prices for very high quality food at this small restaurant where we are comfortably seated. Most of the menu has meat or fish, but they have a vegetarian set with several veg dishes that I could only recommend.

I was a bit skeptical the first time I went here with my Ethiopian friends, but since then I have become an absolute LOVER of enjera!!! Think succulent meat and rich, spicy sauces all wrapped up in a fluffy, slightly yeasty traditional "bread". Truly unique experience, every single time!!
