Addis Ethiopian Restaurant has been a Bay Area fixture for over a decade. Dedicated to bringing a genuine Ethiopian dining experience to our patrons, our dishes are prepared with authentic recipes that date back centuries.

We hope your visit gives you a glimpse into the traditional Ethiopian home, where the people delight in pampering their visitors with comfort and courtesy.
