Ethiopia: Curry Shop Of Long Standing In Curry Town Of Jimbocho

From the Jimbocho station, it takes about 4 minutes to get there by foot or 5 minutes from the Ochanomizu station.

The curry served at Ethiopia has nothing to do with that country. The name comes from it being previously a coffee shop that used to served Ethiopian coffee. The name was kept when they changed the menu.

Most curry fans in Tokyo know this place. It is considered one of the emblematic curry joints of Tokyo.
The restaurant has about 40 seats on two floors.

A Hearty Chicken Curry

Chicken Curry [¥900]
The chicken curry is the most popular option. The first thing to be said is that when you order any curry you choose the level of spiciness you want it from a scale of 1 to 7. Apparently, you'll feel the spiciness even if you choose the 1. 7 is really, really spicy.
The curry is made from a mix of 12 spices and has plenty of vegetables that release a natural sweetness in the roux. It has a particular scent that is a mix of spicy and sweet. The taste is rather gentle. The curry is consistent, but not too heavy.
There are big chunks of chicken in the curry. It makes for a satisfying meal if you are really hungry.
The balance of spiciness, sweetness, herbal taste and umami savouriness from the chicken and veggies is just right. Give it a try and you'll know why this is one of the most popular curry restaurants in curry town Jimbocho. This is not an easy feat to achieve!


If you are a curry lover, you should try Bondy in Jimbocho as well. It's a curry house of comparable stature to Ethiopia.
