Stopped in last night on a whim.  The place felt clean and open.  The staff was super friendly and helpful.   I had never tried Ethiopian food.  And the waitress helped me order.  The food was good.  The experience was fun!

Great food and value. I don't usually get buffet at restaurants, but I was just passing through town and stopped for lunch. The food was very good but it was the friendly, hospitable service that made me wish I didn't have to leave. If I lived in Austin I'd eat here all the time!

I over ate, I couldn't stop. Gluten free, vegan and dairy free options! The food was amazing. Everything on the menu is amazing. Come very hungry, or you will take a lot home. The lighting is groovy and atmosphere is casual and homey. My female friend was eyeing the waiter, very handsome.

Took the in-laws and they enjoyed their first Ethiopian experience. We shared the four person meat dish and they had a great time with the injera. Food was on point! The appetizer pastries were excellent with an amazing sauce. Decent bar choices a plus!

Nothing but good things to say about Habesha! We always order the sampler platter, it always tastes fresh, the spices are balanced and the service is always friendly. If you love Ethiopian food, you'll love this place.

Habesha is a fantastic restaurant! Really great food, the portion sizes are perfect, filling not heavy. The honey wine is amazing. Really friendly and helpful if you're new to Ethiopian food. It's an open and bright layout, but still feels really cozy and relaxed. My friends and I had the best time last night, our waitress was really ... read more

For the most part, this may be my favorite Ethiopian restaurant on U Street! The spicy potatoes are a definite requirement, and both the dry tibs and awaze tibs are an absolute must!

One of my favorite restaurants in austin, it's an unassuming little spot but the food is great, the coffee is mind blowing, and the service is always given with a smile. Nice little date spot.

Kinda slum driving in and I must say I was sketchy giving the outward appearance. It took me minutes driving by everyday until I said hell lets do lunch and try it.

Habesha was my first introduction to Ethiopian food and they did not disappoint! I and a friend shared the vegetarian plate and the doro tibs. The vegi plate had lots of amazing offerings with great flavor combos and the doro tibs was also flavorful and just spicy enough to be spicy but still edible. Our waiter was very courteous and ... read more

First time coming to authentic restaurant.  Friendly service, clean, and tasty food.  Love the hot tea, hot the spot on a cold night. I tried the vegan sampler,  very tasty. My better half got a lamb dish, he loved it. Give this place a try.

It was my first time having authentic Ethiopian food in a a sit down restaurant. After being introduced to this cuisine through food trucks in new York, my curiosity and fondness for the use of spices and sauces was already high. Getting to the restaurant can be a little tricky because I missed the right turn once but once inside the ... read more

One of the most underrated places in Austin! My first time trying Ethiopian food was at Habesha. You eat with your hands here using injera, which is kind of like a soft/spongy flatbread, as your utensil. It was a cool sensory experience eating with my hands and such unique flavors for my tastebuds. I recommend coming here with other ... read more
