We had the Vegeterian set meal, with 5 different "curries", a tomato salad, pickles and injera. It was very tasty and healthy and nicely spiced. The red lentil curry is especially tasty. I love "spoonong" up the curries with the injera. The decoration is traditional,...More

Very good food and friendly service. We got the set menus for 3 which was more than enough food. The food was of a good quality and was interesting to eat with bread. The service was slightly in the slow side but generally worth it.

Description
Addis in Cape! Voted best African Eatery in Cape Town, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant that caters for Non-vegetarian, Vegan and Vegetarian clients. We provide a unique communal dining experience you, your family and friends will remember. From traditional hand-wash ceremonies to our traditional Ethiopian coffee we promise a memorable experience. Ethiopian cuisine is famous for its rich aromas and generous use of herbs and spices. The country was historically situated on trading routes that included the trade of many exotic spices; this history has had a tremendous influence on the taste of Ethiopian food as we know it. Today most of the herbs and spices are blended and prepared in the home with great love and attention, as are those used in Addis in Cape. The dishes that you taste here are unique to Ethiopia and we are proud as a restaurant to share them with you.
