We came to the Habesha because of the good recommendation. We're a big fan of the Ethiopian kitchen so we have already been to many Ethiopian restaurants and we have to say that Habesha wasn't as good as we thought. The food is good, but in our eyes not spicy enough. Furthermore the typical Ethiopian bread - injera - didn't... More

My visit was short but interesting as an attempt of diversifying my cultural knowledge. I loved the outdoor sitting among green and clean vegetation. The 'ubani' at the table was not welcoming for me because of my sensitivity to smoke. The gift shop with the Ethiopian fabric was good and I definitely plan a go back to get some of... More

Habesha is a family favorite (Despite the fact that my kids started out looking at me like 'you're kidding, right? Now they cant get enough, especially of the beets and the shiro.) The food is consistent and tasty, the prices are very fair. They have Ambo, which is a favorite spring water from Ethiopia (though usu not the Ethiopian beer...)... More

Had dinner here with several business associates. Enjoyed the food and the laid back atmosphere. Service was good, and the prices were very reasonable. Best Ethiopian food I have had outside Ethiopia!

my first Ethiopian food experience... was very tasty, however the next few days I was suffering from intense food poisoning. I would return, but haven't brought myself to do so just yet!

I have visited here a few times now and each time I have enjoyed the food very much. Nice and relaxed atmosphere to eat, drink or both! Staff very obliging and nothing is too much trouble for them! Sometimes the place is very busy even during the day but still the food arrives without any long delays! I will be... More

very good unique food served in a traditional way. The waiter was a dude with very poor body language and a take it or leave it attitude. He lectured me when i put a used hand tissue in my finished plate. I didnt know where to put it. But he was outright disgusted and told me never to do that... More

I've never had authentic Ethiopian food ... and Habesha was great !! Great setting with outdoor dining in a charming courtyard. Tasty food with a variety of wonderful flavors and seasonings. We ordered a huge platter with sponge bread and a variety of dishes including goat, chicken, and vegetables. All the flavors were wonderful. Safe, comfortable and charming location.
