Had the vegetarian combination platter for two and it was simply delicious. It comes with Injera and 5 different „Sauces“ and we wanted to lick the plate clean in the end. The service is good, and the ambience as well.

Pros: Good vegetarian options, Delicious , Good price!

Slow service, ok food, beautiful place!

Bejte Ethiopia is a medium-sized restaurant located in Schöneberg.

The allergens are marked for each dish on the menu, which makes it possible to decipher what is vegan. I still recommend asking, to be sure.

I was there with some friends and we all ordered different things. A pretty big minus for me is how long it took to get our food. The restaurant was not nearly full and it took 30+ minutes for five main dishes. The food was good but nothing exceptional. Something I really liked was the interior design. It was dark and cozy and full of Ethiopian decorations.

Good food

The food was good, the staff quite nice but I had better ethiopian cuisine in a warmer atmosphere before. Usually I leave these kind of restaurants stuffed. This time I could have eaten even more. Unfortunately they did not have any vegan dessert.

Unser Abend im Bejte Ethiopia zählt mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit zu einem unserer unvergesslichsten Restaurantbesuche.

Wir bestellten die vegane Platte und bereuten schon nach kurzer Zeot uns an einen normalen Tisch und nicht einen der gewebten Rundtische gesetzt zu haben. Der Restaurantbesitzer erklärte uns, dass die Tische in Ethiopien dort von Frauen gewebt werden und an die Plattenform angepasst sind.

Das Essen selbst war unglaublich gut. Von Kartoffeln, Linsen, Grünkohl bis zu einem süßlich-scharfen Brei schmeckte alles vorzüglich. Die verschiedenen Speisen wurden mit einem gesäuerten Pfannkuchen "geschaufelt". Dadurch entstand eine vielfältige Geschmackskombination, die nur noch durch das kombinieren der verschiedenen Speisen auf der Platte übertroffen werden konnte.

Doch auch hier vehielten wir uns zunächst noch zu zögerlich und "schaufelten" nicht genug auf ein Pfannkuchenstück - weshalb dann auch irgendwann nicht mehr genug Pfannkuchen für die Speisen vorhanden war. Wir bekamen jedoch sofort zwei weitere Pfannkuchen gebracht, mit dem dezenten Hinweis, diese großz7giger zu beladen. Gesagt getan und voller Beschämung mussten wir feststellen, dass die ersten zwei Pfannkuchen gut ausgereicht hätten.

Zum Abschluss des Abends bestellten wir noch einen ethiopischen Kaffee, der erstaunlich bekömmlich (obwohl schwarz) war. Dazu wurde gesalzenes Popcorn gereicht und eine Servicekraft erklärte uns, dass man eine Kanne Kaffee zu 2-5 Personen trinkt und dabei über Probleme diskutiert. Auch dies erprobten wir erfolgreich unter dem Einfluss dieses belebenden Getränks.

Zum Schluss wurde uns noch ein Schnaps gereicht, der auf Kosten des Hauses ging.

Yummy food, long wait

Delicious veggie dishes in a quite an authentic atmosphere. Try the honey wine (if you’re ok with honey). We waited for the food for so long though, so skip if you’re in a hurry.

Pros: Vegan

Cons: Long wait for food

Authentic Ethiopian food. Can recommend. I just don't find the ambience particularly comfortable and you should make a reservation in advance.

Delicious Vegan Food

Shared the Vegetarian (and also vegan) plate for 2 with a friend and In can tell you: the food is amazing. They have this pancake-like dough and lots of different little dishes, where you dip in.
In the end I wanted to order a dessert but the waiter (who remembered that I was vegan) told me that there is milk in it BUT he will try to make it without milk for me - I was really amazed, he created a delicious dessert for me!

Pros: Attentive and friendly waiter, Lovely Atmosphere, Delicious Vegan Food + Dessert

Amazing vegan food

Such a great experience, lovely atmosphere and staff! There were four of us and we ordered two of the vege (vegan) platters, meant to serve two people each. It arrived on one massive injera, with loads of different toppings/curries on top as well as a side plate with extra injera. So so delicious:-)

Vegan feast!

Delighted to find this place and to introduce my partner to Ethiopian cuisine ☺️ we shared the vegetarian combo, which staff explained was vegan before we asked, along with beer and mango juice, and prompted interest from other diners when the platter arrived! Delicious food. Lovely staff. A little pricier than other places we've been but worth it.

Pros: Delicious food, Friendly staff, Clearly labelled / explained vegan options

Nice Food in nice atmosphere with great staff

We spend Dec 31st at Bejte and had an amazing time. The food was great, they explained what was vegan and what not on the buffet.
I suggest to have eaten before 8 pm because then is a coffee ceremony that I found lovely. When I'm in Berlin again, I'll go there again!
I suggest: Try the fruit beer that you dring from a bowl and choose the traditional seating - both were special experiences!

Pros: Diverse offer of vegan products, tasty, nice atmosphere and great people

Cons: Still serve meat

Fun and delicious experience

We went to this restaurant last night after reading the last review. The atmosphere of the restaurant was great, and eating in the traditional way was great fun. The staff were really friendly and helpful. There is not a lot of choice for veggies but what there is is delicious. It was also very cheap. Highly recommended.

Pros: Excellent food, Good value

Cons: Not many veggie options

Great veg food at a bargain in Berlin!!

Bete ('Pray') Ethiopian is S of Mitte off of Bulowstrasse, and worth any trip! They have a good variety of Ethopian veg. dishes/curries served on the traditional 'pancake' - a fun way to eat. A few items are spicy, but most are pretty tame - you can ask them to make any item not so spicy if you wish. We got a generous dinner for two and a bottle of water for E23 total!! - it was soooo reasonable!! They also serve alcohol, and there is Western seating in front (tables/chairs) and trad. seating (stools/basket tables/benches) in back - very fun. They do have meat, but menus are clear about vegetarian dishes. We will go back there anytime we can!!

Pros: good veg choices, GREAT value!!, super-friendly diff. cultural experience

Cons: small restaurant fills quickly
