Demera Ethiopian Restaurant
A special treat.I have gone there at least 5 times and they never fail to please.
The individual portions did seem a little small, but when we were finished, we were stuffed!
I'm never crazy about "bone in" selections, but the chicken drumsticks were so sweet and tender, the meat just about fell off!
The only thing I do not like is driving all the way to Chicago just to get anything Ethiopian, but it's worth it as a special treat.
I wish there was one closer to Shorewood, perhaps in Naperville?5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGet your hands messy!Great food, good service, nice atmosphere, even some patio seating - all in all, this place was a nicely balanced good find - I would certainly go back!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!I've been craving Ethiopian food for weeks and this did not disappoint! We tried several dishes, but the winner of the night was a beet and carrot vegetarian dish. Service was a bit slow, in particular we had to flag someone down to take our order after 20 minutes of waiting, but well worth it.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food + Staff = Outstanding!Went to Demera based on a review from Check Please! and so glad we did! The wait staff is tremendously helpful for people new to Ethiopian food and they check back often (but not too often to be annoying). We have tried other Ethiopian restaurants closer to our home in the far north suburbs, but the food just doesn't come close to the quality of Demera. We have been to Demera 3 times, and we typically have the messob platter with a chef's selection of vegetarian and meat dishes. It is always delicious, yet we always get something new and different that we didn't have on a previous visit. The tiramisu is incredible and worth saving room for. The coffee (very strong but not bitter) is a wonderful way to end a meal.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food

Our waiter, who was fantastic, pretty much ordered our meal and drinks for us. Everything was superb! Thanks so much for helping me show out of town clients a great night.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Demera twice,I've been to Demera twice, and both times really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The flavors are very well developed and everything was delicious. They offer a ton of vegetarian and meat options to satisfy everyone. The spiciness is very well controlled for those who don't like things too intense. The honey wine was great, and you can tell it was home made. My mom and aunt had never had Ethiopian food before, and both were very pleased with everything.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMVery clean, simple yet elegantVery clean, simple yet elegant decor. A very traditional menu, and a helpful staff to answer questions and walk you through it. Out looks and tastes, much more expensive than it is. We had a very good dining experience.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic staff! The bestFantastic staff! The best I have seen at any restaurant I've visited! Super friendly, warm, knowledgeable, and very professional! Food was also very good. Ambience is nice but tables are too close together making the place rather noisy. All in all, I hope you open a branch in gurnee,Il soon.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
