An excellent evening at this Ethiopian restaurant. Smiley service and tasty food, amidst a jungle of African memorabilia.

If you want to experience authentic Ethiopian food with a magical atmosphere then this is the place for you, Madam Taitou’s has an extensive menu of different Ethiopian curries/ stews to suit every palette-they cater to vegetarians and vegans as well! I had the veggie sampler and it was amazing - so many different curries; lentil, spinach, chickpea and more with a sourkraut salad and a traditional tear away flat bread- that you use to eat your food with. If you are opposed to eating with your hands then this is NOT the place for you.
The atmosphere of the restaurant makes you feel as if you are eating in either a museum or an old curio shop. There are plants and African trinkets everywhere- so when waiting for my food I was distracted by all the cool things to look at!
The restaurant was packed with people, I went on a Sunday night at around 8pm, so get in early or share a table with strangers and meet new friends- this is actually an option 😀.
