I have given the restaurant many chances and they have been consistently disappointing. Today, Ethiopian New Year, as I walked by I thought it would be nice to get a Kitfo. Tricky food this one but I was desperate for a little bit of home....More

Myself and 2 friends just had the most delicious vegan platter for 3! Honestly one of the best meals I've had in ages and the service was great. Highly recommend this place!

Excellent food. Will come again. Injera and curries were yummy. One star off of five because the place could do with minor repair work.

I think the problem with some of these negative reviews is that this is their first time at an Ethiopian restaurant. They don't know what to expect in terms of the food or the typical homely style of service. Let me set your mind at...More

We really enjoyed the vegetable combo. Large portions and extremely good value for money! The atmosphere of the restaurant is very simple - definitely not a fancy location.

Abyssinia Restaurant is a corner of the Horn of Africa in the midst of London. We're specialized in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine. Our food, which includes a vegetarian variety, is all genuine and authentically prepared. To accompany our food menu we offer a good selection of wines and traditional Ethiopian beers and drinks. You can pop in for just a coffee or enjoy a meal with family and friends as well. A music and dance lounge is available usually at weekends or on our special events, while if you prefer a more cozy and chatty atmosphere, our garden is ideal for a summer evening chill out with drinks. We're open every day from 11 am to Midnight and looking forward to welcome you soon.
