I went here with two friends, one among whom never tried Ethiopian food before. He asked for a fork, and they didn't even have one - so he got a tea spoon. I like Ethiopian food a lot and tried it in various countries, but...More

I was in Paris last year on the hunt for food. My friend took me to this restaurant with her boyfriend. The food, staff and customer service was great. I even went back the next day to enjoy another meal on my own.

Great Ethiopian restaurant in the 5th. Authentic food with great level of spice and cooked to order. Been there several times and always had a great meal. Main courses are ~16 euros and order a few to be shared.

We visited 3 ethiopian restuarants in paris and this was the best we experienced. Its a very small place but with queues out of the door. Everybody enjoyed the food. Make sure you book before you go or sweet talk the owner like we did!...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
