Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant
They Get It Right!Mesob is a gem. Having lived in Washington D.C. for a number of years, I was fortunate to have my pick of many wonderful Adams Morgan, Ethiopian restaurants. Mesob surpasses most and is as good or better, than even the best that D.C. has to offer. Staff is friendly, attentive, knowledgable and stunningly beautiful. A superlative dining experience for all the senses.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAn adventureIf you are interested in delicious and unusual food, Mesob is very much worth a try. The wonderful people who work there are an attraction too.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectly cooked, fun and healthy!This neighborhood/destination gem has been my favorite for years. I try Ethiopian wherever I go, and none has ever measured up. The place is spacious, warm and clean. The owner is one of the warmest and charming people you will EVER meet, the same for her waitstaff (mostly family.) The tables and settings are always spotless. The food is healthy - although NOT low in oil be aware - and fun as injera is plate, food and utensil all in one. Carnivores and vegetarians alike will have no trouble with choices same for those preferring lamb or chicken or shrimp. They have fantastic desserts and you MUST leave space and energy for the Ethiopian coffee. Coffee is my passion - I even plan vacations around it - and I drool for this every time.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mother's Day DinnerMesob provides excellent service, great food. Waitress guided us into making great choices. Vegan daughter, great options. Owner came by at end of meal and gave the mom at our table a beautiful rose. Nice touch.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!It's so refreshing to enjoy a delicious dinner in North Jersey at something other than an Italian restaurant. The food at Mesob is simply delicious. The dishes are refreshingly simple, with just a few ingredients that are expertly prepared and seasoned perfectly. The injera bread is so addicting that I wanted to keep eating it even after I was stuffed! The dining experience at Mesob is very unique by "typical" North-Jersey standards and I cannot recommend it enough!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGood As EverThis is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. The food is always excellent and service courteous and attentive without ever being intrusive.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWell Worth a Visit!Interesting cuisine, nicely prepared and served in a pleasant ambience at fair prices well worth a visit and repeat business.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved It!It was my first experience eating Ethiopian food and I absolutely loved it!!! We ordered two main courses that come with two choices of veggies and it was enough food for at least another person. It was so yammy! I cannot wait to go back!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love going to Mesob!I always love going to Mesob! We were originally a party of 6 but had to add 2 more. They were able to accommodate us without issues. Also, even if several of my party were late, Mesob did not make a big deal out of it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Mesob!Love Mesob! We just went for a pretty quick week day evening meal but me and my friend both enjoyed it. We've been there before but the menu works very easily, easy to try a nice selection and either share or have your own food.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMEcclectic Place to go, but worth itInteresting place to go to eat. Half of the fun is eating with your hands. Must be good with double dipping though. Unless you use silverware, but that takes the fun out of this place. The food is very good and it's worth trying out the sampler platters for a variety of tastes.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMI am at Mesob at least onceI am at Mesob at least once a month.

The food is outstanding and I recommend it to anyone looking to try something new!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic, warm, comfort Ethopian!We've been eating at Mesob for almost 5 years. Previously we lived in Highland Park, NJ & were huge fans of Makeda & were sad when it closed.
Having Mesob just blocks away from us in our new hometown is such a treat!
Mesob is such a warm & inviting setting. The owners are sisters, one in the back running the kitchen, the other running the front end.
Service is always attentative & friendly. The food is AH-MAZING. Mesob is the restaurant we always bring out of town guests to eat. BYOB.
Do try Mesob, you will not be unhappy that you did!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA unique dining experienceA unique dining experience in which small,tapas-lie portions of meat and vegetable dishes are served on a sour bread-like pancake meant to be eaten by pushing the food into your mouth with the bread (forks and knifes are readily available). Attractive, young and polite wait service and pleasant ambience compliment the dining experience. No true foodie shoud miss out on this one!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantHave been to Mesob many times and have never been disappointed. Come hungry....you will love this place.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
