From deepest African to Dandenong, Gibe African Restaurant promises so spice up Melbourne’s sometimes humdrum dining life with fantastic Ethiopian and East African dishes that any self-respecting foodie has got to get familiar with. The foundation of a traditional Ethiopian meal is always the special spongy flatbread injera, used to scoop up all the delicious stews that are the other major feature of food from the Horn of Africa. Gibe African Restaurant gives a lot – more than just food – with live music gracing the restaurant’s Foster Street premises from time to time. Easy to reach from Dandenong station, Gibe African Restaurant should be on your map of Melbourne’s best global restaurants.
Quite a regular now. Excellent value, Great Menu, Friendly service. Always leave with a filled stomach and a grin. An interior make over wouldn't go a miss. This restaurant deserves success.
Enjoyed different tastes, eating using the bread rather than cutlery just added to the experience. Staff was helpful in selecting from menu & there was plenty of food, we couldn't eat it all! Good value.
The food was excellent. I've never had Ethiopian before, but it was nothing like I imagined. The staff were friendly and the overall experience was great. I will definitely be back.
Great food. We had the banquet, about 10 different African meals to try. My only suggestion to Gibe would be to offer a dessert menu.
A few of the meat dishes were slightly dry, but overall a unique & fun experience eating tasty food with your fingers with the Enjera. It was disappointing that the Sambussa was not available, would of liked to try & compare to an Indian Samosa.
Lovely food. Would have liked a welcome and the food explained to our table. Some people had not eaten Ethiopian food before. Ladies toilets were not clean. Really important for restaurants to keep an eye on the bathrooms as it can affect whether or not people come back a second time.
Good value for money. Authentic African food in a very basic setting. Fun place for a group to catch up and share some yummy food and drink African beer.
