Description: Addis in Cape! Voted best African Eatery in Cape Town, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant that caters for Non-vegetarian, Vegan and Vegetarian clients. We provide a unique communal dining experience you, your family and friends will remember. From traditional hand-wash ceremonies to our traditional Ethiopian coffee we promise a memorable experience. Ethiopian cuisine is famous for its rich aromas and generous use of herbs and spices. The country was historically situated on trading routes that included the trade of many exotic spices; this history has had a tremendous influence on the taste of Ethiopian food as we know it. Today most of the herbs and spices are blended and prepared in the home with great love and attention, as are those used in Addis in Cape. The dishes that you taste here are unique to Ethiopia and we are proud as a restaurant to share them with you.

As many others have noted this place is a great Vegetarian option in Capetown. We shared a large injera that had a range of different lentil and vegetable curries served on top. All were very delicious and light. It also came with a starter and small dessert and tea. Great value and service. Not sure about the meat options as didn’t try them but excellent for those looking for Vegetarian and I would assume the meals were vegan as I couldn’t see any dairy or eggs.

We had the Vegeterian set meal, with 5 different "curries", a tomato salad, pickles and injera. It was very tasty and healthy and nicely spiced. The red lentil curry is especially tasty. I love "spoonong" up the curries with the injera.

The decoration is traditional, there is traditional music, prices are very reasonable and staff very friendly. We will definitely be back.

For anybody who has ever wanted to try Ethiopian, but feels intimidated, this is your chance. For our visit, the wait staff was incredibly helpful and pleasant. The decor of the room is unique and the incense used during the coffee service adds a whole dimension to the experience. If you're unfamiliar just ask for the set menu and everything will be explained. Also, have no fear of fiery spice as they go easy on the berbere unless you ask for spicey.

The people that work at this Ethiopian restaurant do everything to make your stay a worthwhile experience. We never ate Ethiopian style before, so they explained everything and helped us choose the right dishes. Very cool place if you like to do something different, especially when on a date.
