Located a few minutes away from the city centre, this restaurant specializing in Ethiopian food features pleasing decor, friendly and attentive service, and delicious food. It was our first introduction to Ethiopian food, and as vegetarians we had no problem finding starters or main courses. We ordered vegan sambuzas (like Indian samosas) stuffed with onions and potatoes, followed by the vegan platter which featured four different dishes accompanied by injera ( the Ethiopian bread staple), rice and couscous. The portions are ample, and by ordering the platter we tasted a cross-section of dishes all of which were excellent.Service was very friendly and attentive, with the staff coming up more than once to inquire if everything was O.K.. To top off the meal we were served complimentary shots of ouzo. The aroma of freshly roasted Ethiopian coffee wafted through the restaurant but we had to forgo this pleasure as it was too late in the evening for poor sleepers like us..

Great Place for a romantic dinner or dinner with friends. Came here for a birthday treat and chose a table outside. On a quiet street, perfect. For starters we ordered sweet potato, egg plant and falafel with 2 dips and it was fantastic. Main dish had chicken with peppers, number 61 on the menu with sweet potato and it was delicious. Best was the service. The lady Tattiena was lovely and friendly and helpful, speaks English, and let us stay to finish our drinks way after closing time on a Sunday night. Lovely experience .. will be sure to come back. Highly recommend...
Walking from the North of town, the University area, to Theaterplatz towards the downtown area, saw a "soulfood" sign. Curious, I first saw.... a bar called Buddha Lounge! But Soulfood is just around the corner, a little hidden behind a cobblestone area. There are just 6 small tables, and the cooking area is in plain view. One woman cooks, advises, serves, charges, and obviously owns the place. It is decorated with lots of African art, and she obviously loves Africa. There is a very short general menu which is vegan, and a daily changing main dish menu with two meat dishes. The vegan part I tried was a lentil salad, which tasted wonderful, and a vegetable stew in peanut sauce (sweet potato, celery root, okra and others) that tasted so great I asked for ingredients and tried to recook myself. The wine choice was not bad either. And it wasn't expensive - Euro 12.50 for an appetizer, main dish, and wine.
