Beautiful food beautiful atmosphere

This is such an oasis in West End, with a relaxed garden out the back and lovely owners. The pace is slow and it’s worth the wait for the exquisite food.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Incredible injera and curries, Social enterprise

Cons: Pricey

Lovely staff and food

The service is often a bit slow but the people here are learning so I am happy to wait. One thing they don’t lack is passion very passionate about the food. Big portions and good taste. Good vibe and decor

Simple and delicious

Clearly marked vegan options (including delicious vegan donuts!). All dishes were delicious with small-moderate portions. Staff were wonderful and service was quick. Outdoor seating was gorgeous. Definitely worth the trip.

Just ok

The concept behind it is great, but the food is underwhelming. Not bad, but i've had better Ethiopian food many times over. Also it took them like half an hour to bring us more injeera, though we asked 3 times...
But it's a nice place, nice staff, good vibe

Vibrant social enterprise

We had a wonderful experience at Mu'ooz, the outdoor eating area was beautifully lit with fairy lights and the staff were friendly/helpful - we were entranced by the delicious scent from the moment we entered. Food was delicious and it was wonderful that all veggie meals were vegan friendly. We tried sambusa and spring rolls, which were small but tasty. The sauce they were served with amazing! For mains we had kantisha, duba and alicha with enjera and rice. Duba, the pumpkin dish was our favourite, it was full of flavour and the enjera bread was the perfect accompaniment. Can't wait to return and try the other dishes!

Pros: Great atmosphere, Lots of vegan options, Supporting a good cause

Tasty but exy and unsatisfying.

This place is tasty... at a price. Mains are $25 and entrees are $8... Which is fine, if you weren't told it's a bargain training restaurant, and it didn't have a shabby cheap cafetería feel (faded tablecloths etc) - I'd expect a lot more for the price. Food was ok, but not amazing. Entrees were especially tiny. I left hungry, and wishing I'd taken my friend somewhere else. It wasn't exactly brimming with trainees, either. Seemed much more like a mom n pop type outfit. I hope they are not exploiting their workers. I don't see where the money is going. It's not going into the food or decor!

Pros: Tasty food, Parking in the supermarket in the street behind, Helps African refugees... Allegedly

Cons: Expensive, Small portions, Cheap cafetería feel
