So far, this is my overall favorite Ethiopian restaurant in the East Bay. Despite the horrendous service, the food is really, really excellent, the prices are almost embarrassingly low, and the honey wine is good and very strong. <br> The first time we came to eat here, we were left standing in the doorway for a very long time before we were seated, although there were several free tables.

Addis Ethiopian does basic Ethiopian food very well. There are only about six items on the menu, but they are all good.
