      A message from Fassil Ethiopian Restaurant

      Fassil Restaurant was named after King FASSIL, also known as Emperor Fasiladas (reigend 1632-1667). The founder of Gondar was Emperor Fasiladas who, tiring of the pattern of migration that had characterized the lifestyle of so many of his forefathers, moved his capital here in 1636 AD. By the late 1640's he had built a great castle here, which stands today in a grassy compound surrounded by other fortresses of later construction. With its huge towers and looming battlement walls, it seems like a piece of medieval Europe transposed to Ethiopia. Enjoy a bit of Ethiopian Culture: Try Gursha! The technique of hand feeding your dinner companion by placing chunks of food into the mouth. We would like for you to experience the art of Gursha and enjoy the delicacy to its fullest.
