Ranked #895 of 5241 restaurants in London
"Abyssinia Restaurant is a corner of the Horn of Africa in the midst of London. We’re specialized in Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine. Our food, which includes a vegetarian variety, is all genuine and authentically prepared. To accompany our food menu we offer a good selection of wines and traditional Ethiopian beers and drinks. You can pop in for just a coffee or enjoy a meal with family and friends as well. A music and dance lounge is available usually at weekends or on our special events, while if you prefer a more cozy and chatty atmosphere, our garden is ideal for a summer evening chill out with drinks. We’re open every day from 11 am to midnight every day (late nights on weekends) and looking forward to welcome you soon."

This is a great place to try a variety of exotic African cuisine. My girlfriend and I visit regularly. Anyone else been?

Thank you so much for your positive review. Just to inform you that the management has now changed since 2014. The look of Abyssinia has changed and it now also includes a music lounge for the weekend and/or special occasions and an outdoor garden. We're working really hard to rise our standards high with our authentic food and traditional drinks. Looking forward to welcome you and your girlfriend back soon :)

I have been coming to this restaurant ever since it opened last year, and i have loved it so much ever since, it has everything what you need in a ethiopian restaurant, the food that they make is exquisite, the drinks are very refreshing, the staff are very polite and very good people and my family and i enjoy this place very much. The music and dance hall that they have downstairs is absolutely fantastic for parties and i enjoy myself very much when i go there. I will continue to come here and hope that this fantastic restaurant keeps up with the good work. :) Highly recommended to all people :)

We went to Abyssinia for the first time for a family meal. It was really welcoming. The atmosphere is cozy and yet entertaining with both lively traditional, ethnic and mixed chill out music. The meal was great and the staff was very polite and the service efficient. Excellent homemade food and traditional drinks. We went back again and were not disappointed. A breath of exotic and friendly fresh air in the midst of London.

Visited this place recently with high expectations - severely disappointed however. Walked in waited around no one to greet. Sat down waited then eventually a menu appeared. Ordered waited some more - food arrived then more disappointment. Injera was O.k. but the Tibs and the rest was so mediocre with no taste and poor presentation. Waited forever for the bill which eventually arrived only to be told the credit card machine was out of order. Walked to the cash machine and paid a £3 withdrawl premium. I hear the place was once great and has now changed hands. I know Ethiopian food, great Ethiopian food even and this is not even close. They even manage to spell Abyssina incorrectly on the chair covers. I'd gve it 0 stars if possible. You've been warned!
