Habesha is renowned for its authentic Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine, Habesha was voted the Best Value for Money Restaurant at the inaugural Taste Awards in 2016, cementing its popularity among resident foodies. The Ethiopian/Eritrean coffee ceremony is one of the most enjoyable treats at Habesha.

My favourite Ethiopian restaurant in Nairobi. Been a regular visitor to this place for more than 10 years. Food quality has not changed over all these years. Have taken friends, family and colleagues to eat there and never had any complaints.
