Little Ethiopia Restaurant reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Authentic Ethiopian Food
    Dined on 9/7/2013
    The restaurant is located in the middle of the Fairfax corridor right below Olympic known as Little Ethiopia. The decor is old and the noise level was fairly high. There was a DJ playing African music - loud but very listenable. At one point there was what appeared to be a child's birthday party going on (on Saturday night). But you forget all that once the delicious food arrives. We had a chicken and a beef dish (one spicy, one mild) and all the vegetable sides that accompany. All stacked together in individual piles on a large platter with Injera on the side (Injera is a spongy bread used to pick up the food in bites). All wonderfully tasty (and fairly healthy) and eating from a community platter with your fingers is a fun experience.

    I would recommend this to a friend.
  • Make sure no private party!

    First time I've ever walked out on a reservation. We arrived to find one of the two rooms filled with a private party (a kid's birthday party, apparently). No, what it was really filled with was sound. They (the party, I presume) had a guitarist with an amp. Couldn't hear a damned thing, but the host pointed us into the other room, which was unoccupied. The guitarist, however, had his amp cranked up to 11, so even in the other room it was deafening. It quickly became obvious why the room was empty. If you're entertaining the idea of going here, be sure they're not having a party with music. Or, go ahead and take your chances, and if it turns out like our evening, choose any of the nice Ethiopian restaurants in the same block.
