We ate in the restaurant during a late evening; the place was loaded with customers. Our waiter served us quickly, first at the bar, and shortly afterwards at the table. We ordered one big injerra with 3 types of veggies and 3 types of meat. The food arrived after almost 20 minutes. It looked amazing, and tasted even better than... More

I have been to Toukoul on a number of ocassions these last years and I am always happy to return. Especially for visiting friends, this is a truly new and great experience. The food is fantastic, the service great and the music top. The restaurant's décor and ambiance is amazing. Well-recommended!

I came here with my parents when they visited Brussels. We ordered the vegetarian discovery menu and the food was delicious - we had never had Ethiopian food before, but it was nicely spiced and all great. There was a lot, but we were very hungry and got free tea for finishing everything on our plate! As some people have... More

I reserved well in advance for a friday night with a friend and we were very happy with the whole experience! Neither of us had ever had Ethiopian food so we didn't know what to expect. The staff were super helpful with explaining the food / the concept. We took the vegan discovery platter for 2 and it was very... More

The place has two entrances, from two streets to the same place, that is why the two addresses. Easy to access by car, you can park either on the street or close by public under/over-ground parkings. I went there with my girlfriend for a dinner on a Tuesday. The resto was surprisingly full (despite a Tuesday), so better to book.... More

We visited Toukoul as a family of 8 for my 50th birthday. I choose the restaurant because of their veggie options, as half of us are vegetarian, and was not disappointed!! The presentation of both the meat and vegetarian sharing platters was fabulous and both had equally good reviews, they were delicious! The service was great and our waitress was... More
