574 Rideau St, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, K1N 6A1

Serves meat, vegan options available. In Ethiopian cuisine you will find vegan suitable dishes. The 7 or so vegetarian ones here are vegan, such as the mesir wot (lentils in sauce), shiro wot (seasoned chickpeas), and atkilt wot (veggies in curry sauce). Dishes can be ordered individually or all in smaller portions served over injera (thin teff bread). Open Mon-Sat 12:00pm-10:00pm.

First Review by Allan&Michelle

Excellent Ethiopian Food - Edit

We moved to Ottawa 1 year ago and being vegan have struggled to find a good healthy dining experience. We happened to walk by Habesha and decided to try it for lunch. Since then, we have been frequenting it almost every 2 weeks. The staff are very friendly and the food is superb. We have eaten in many Ethiopian restaurants in both Canada & USA. This one is by far the tastiest and healthiest. Nothing worse than your food swimming in oil. If you are vegan, try the vegetarian platter (which is all vegan) to give you a good idea what to order next time you dine here. Washrooms really need an overhaul/upgrade but contrary to other reviews, we have never found them not to be clean. Perhaps if more people frequented this jewel of a restaurant the owners could put more money into the surroundings. Otherwise it is very clean and we like the cozy feel of the restaurant.
The bar menu and food prices are beyond reasonable. Trust us, you will not be disappointed.
