Muzita Abyssinian Bistro
Delightful findIn all the years I've visited Muzita, I have never been disappointed by the food and service. It is by far my favorite place to bring friends and family.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Birthday DinnerI went to Muzita (this is my 3rd-4th timne dining there) for my birthday (6/11/2013) with my parents. It was their first time and they loved it. The food was delicious and the waitress was eager and willing to explain the terms of each dish along with the taste/flavor of each spice. Very cute space, small inside, but that give it an intimate feel. I higly recommend Muzita for any occasion or just for a great dinner!
Monique6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!A great dining experience, hospitality at it's best!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious as alwaysMuzita is always accommodative to dietary restrictions.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways OutstandingI brought several friends and an out-of-town guest to Muzita on Friday. My friends ranged from people who had eaten there before to people who had never tried Ethiopian/African food anywhere ever. Everyone LOVED it! The family style food made the event really fun, everyone was trying everything. The food is amazing. The alcohol is terrific as well, I'm a big fan of soju, honey wine and the Ethiopian beer (especially the stout). The buzz in the restaurant is always good, loud enough to give a good vibe but not so loud you can't hear each other speak.
The waitstaff here are always amazing - super friendly, extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. Very vegan-friendly!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Vegan OptionsI brought my wife here for our anniversary. She loved it. The staff was friendly and they had great vegan options.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great little neighborhoodThis is a great little neighborhood restaurant run by a friendly, humble, hard working, and sincere proprietor (Abel) and a great wait staff. Jennifer served us this time (we're repeat customers) and made our visit very special. The food is unique in San Diego and outstanding, especially if you like spicy Eritrean/Ethiopian food (we do). There are also excellent drink choices (beer, wine, and specialty drinks) that complement the food nicely.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ethiopian FoodHad a great Ethopian food experience on a Saturday for lunch and server was great too.
We ordered Birsn Korosho for appetizer. The spread was ok, Injera was yummy crispy but too oily
For entree we ordered Hamli with 2 sides (Timtimo and Alitcha Atakilti)
Hamli was very yummy and well flavored. Timtimo was lentils with tomato, tasted superb and Alitcha Atakilti was amazingly flavored too.
For Dessert we ordered in house made tiramisu. It was one of the BEST Tiramisu I've had.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNever disappontedI have never been disappointed in visiting this restaurant.
