This was our first meal at Pamukkale in Addis, but it definitely won't be our last. We sat on the covered patio and it was a lovely evening (also nice to be away from the cigarette smoke inside). I had been craving some good humus, so we ordered that with the complimentary pita and "poofy" bread that is brought to the table - along with (also free) small plates of tzitziki dip, a tomato relish similar to a salsa, and a spicier red chili dip. Honestly, we all could have filled up on this starter - the dips were all excellent!!!

For mains, one of us had the chicken tibs (served in a very hot rounded pan with pieces of bread, and rice in the center), the daily special which was a combo of 4 kebobs (2 meat, 2 chicken), and the mixed grill (two types of beef and 2 generous pieces of chicken). All of our meals were really tasty and seemed freshly made - not pre-made and warmed. We were disappointed that they weren't serving schwarmas that night - but our other food was all excellent.

For dessert, we shared a two orders of baklava (OUTSTANDING) with scoops of vanilla ice cream. Yummy! And, to finish our meal, we were served small cups of black tea.

Everything was really great. I honestly can't wait to go back! Our server was pleasant, helpful and available.

Good authentic Turkish food including very good appetizers. Good kebabs. Nice tea at the end of the meal. Nice, low key atmosphere and reasonable price for the quality of the food. A good place for a relatively low key business lunch or to bring the family. Only problem is that they have not had shwarmas the last two times I went.
