Really good food and quality for the price point. Was really packed lunch time on a Sunday. Service was prompt. Very casual atmosphere and you can expect to eat some dishes with your hands. At another Ethiopian restaurant I've been to they bring water and...More

Habesha is Addis Ababa in Nairobi. I love the food and diversity it brings to us. The portions are very good and fresh. You won't regret the experience with this restaurant. The Arwings Kodhek road branch allows you to bring in cake and celebrate birthdays.
