Reviewed 21 February 2018

Like the title, Nice food BUT the atmosphere is Horrible. the restaurant is on the third floor of random building.
First we can't find the way up, need to call the restaurant to give us direction.
You have to take the elevator that is just right next to the road and when it open on another side you can smell the cigarette right away. So that when we found out that its more like a pub or a karaoke than a restaurant.
Very Dark, Very Smelly, Floor is very dirty,
BTW the coffee is nice

Excellent food, and very unusual atmosphere for Bangkok. African music and mainly visited by African customers.
I went several times and will go again !

Restaurant didn’t seem clean at all, smelled like a bathroom when we first walked in. We tried to order but the filthiness of the place combined with how expensive it was really turned us off. Can’t speak to the food because we didn’t order but we didn’t want to take a chance of getting sick— judging by the way the rest of the restaurant was kept, I seriously doubted the cleanliness of the kitchen. So disappointed because we live here and are craving good Ethiopian food!

We (Ethiopian and Foreigner) decided to go to this restaurant as we were in Bangkok for holiday. The room was full of not eating or drinking customers (gangs).very dark, dirty, full of cockroaches and very dangers room. They charged as for two dishes and one small beer and tea about 900 baht. That is too much money for that kind of food comparable to Thailand’s very good restaurant.
This place isn't a restaurant - it's a con. And a health hazard. Don't let the decent pictures on their website fool you. Avoid.
I don't recommend this restaurant, not even to my worst enemy.

I ate 'Tibs' with the veggie, 'Gomen' twice. I am satisfied. Very friendly & caring staff. They asked at least twice if there is anything I need more.
It will be good if they can minimize the loud music.
