    My friend arrive the restaurant, owner operator was friendly. We order a 4 courses for 2 people. Then the nightmare started... starter was fried curry puff. Half was hot and half was double fried, burned and icy cold on the outside and inside. He served it despite knowing its left over ones from days before unable to sell n mixed it with the hot ones think customers don’t realise. We waited for 30 mins for this starter while we were the only customer in the restaurant. Then later on we hear screen from the kitchen. And saw the kitchen was on fire. He took out the fire extinguisher, we were in shock. After another 30 mins. We received our main course, the food was reheated and just warm. Then we realised there was only one man operating the whole shop, he cooked and served, not a chef/cook .... the dessert was just 2 scoops of ice cream.... we cancelled the rest of the courses and left the restaurant with disgust.. I hope no one else is going to experience this .

    The resto is in the middle of a small complex. The food has very strong flavor, the presentation could be better.

    Restaurant has a very basic ambience which serves a vast variety of Ethiopian food. We tried the platter to sample four of the curry dishes with the injera bread - unfortunately it did not come with rice. The bread was not to our taste - too sour and overpowering for the food.

    First time tried African cuisine, something different I would say. Similar to Sri Lanka curry but the way the cook their rice is different, unique and easy to eat.

    It's my first time eating African cuisine. It's such a good experience to try a new dish. The bread is awesome. The restaurant decoration is basic, but I don't mind that. The serving size is large. I order spicy beef curry on the bread and finish up with Ethiopian black coffee.

    If you like sourdough, must try the injera bread. The stew dishes are good with the injera

    Not coming from an African background, but happy to try new things, our family of 5 headed here to enjoy a cultural experience. Though the service was slow, we took the opportunity to look at the local - more traditional - shops and enjoyed talking with the traders. When the food came, it was very tasty, wholesome and reflected the culture. We didnt order chilli dishes, and we had a combination of rice and traditional pancake wraps with our meal. The kids and hubby loved it, and we left with full bellies.

    Disappointing. No service. Food nice but as a package, not an experience I would repeat. I would not take children here.

    Great food and great experience! However, the venue is a little dingy and the service is quite slow (the staff seems confused at times). Overall the food is great, I love the sharing platters, you get to try all the different dishes and they are all good!

About the restaurant

Up until now, to experience the traditions of Ethiopia, you would have to spend 26 hours or more on two or three planes to get to Addis Ababa for truly authentic Ethiopian hospitality. But now, thanks to Tesfaye and the team at “Made in Africa”, you can have a truly authentic Ethiopian experience right here in Brisbane.
