We have been to this restaurant many times and would highly recommend it. The food is great, generous portions and lovely flavours. The fact that people queue to get in is testament to the quality of the place. A great, authentic experience that contrasts Paris' overpriced establishments and tourist traps.

Came as group of 6. We all shared the same big dish and ate with our fingers as is normal with Ethiopian cuisine. The problem is for 6 there really isn't much. 2 others of our group arrived late and got half the size of our plate at the same price for themselves. I guess the trick is to ask for your own plate here. Food was tasty and do advice trying here but recommend only to eat with good friends because it is awkward.

Honestly some of the best food I've had in Paris. Cute tiny quaint place with really incredible food. Was with a group of 7, ordered beer wine and tea. The chef was very attentive to my concerns about grave food allergy to lentils. We had the platter with 6 selections, beef, lamb, chicken, spinach, beets and potatoes, chicken pea puree. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented, flavors were clearly different for each dish, spicy but not too spicy (lots of sliced jalapeños you could pick out if you don't like spice.) Will return every time I'm in Paris! Special thank you to the chef for being attentive to my food allergy.

We had dinner at that place one hot day in August and had shared several delicious meals but ended up sick the next two days, we expect part of the food was not fresh ...

This is really good Ethiopian cuisine. All the ingredients were fresh, and the kitchen knew what to do with them. Three of us shared a giant vegetarian platter of nicely spiced legumes and vegetables. The flavor combinations were perfect. The injera (fermented teff flat bread) was light, with crispy edges. None of us had the meat dishes, but if they were anywhere as good as the vegetarian platter, you should be happy with them. The restaurant is small, decorated with masks from around the African continent. They were playing an interesting mix of African music the night we ate there. There was at least one table available for sidewalk dining. Located on a small street in the picturesque Latin Quarter, near the Biblioteque Sainte Genevieve and the Pantheon, you might need a map or GPS to find it, but it is well worth the search.
