Sarbet is a well-established neighborhood south-west of Addis. It was mainly residential but it’s now quickly growing. And has become the top expat and elite hangout spot in Addis Ababa.
Sarbet in Amharic literally means “grass house”. House of grass, locally known as ‘Gojo bet’, are Ethiopian traditional houses constructed mainly of grass. The neighborhood took the name Sarbet because of the two huge grass houses in the area (around Pushkin round bout) built during the reign of Emperor Haileselassie. These houses now serve as restaurants.
During the time it got its name, Sarbet was a low populated and undeveloped area. But over a course of a few years, it has grown to be one of Addis Ababa’s developed neighborhoods. Sarbet is one of the few areas in Addis which is relatively less crowded and breathy; which helped the neighborhood remain mainly residential. Although the houses around sarbet are secluded, all the facilities you might need are available in a close proximity.
