Thai | Uptown, Chicago

Herb is a small restaurant with a very talented, hands-on chef and owner. The portions are on the smaller side (compared to most restaurants), and that is a good thing. It allows the customers/diners to truly enjoy each course. The flavors and freshness of the food were wonderful. Presentation is impeccable! The owner/chef was attentive to our and other tables, ensuring that food and service met our needs. We couldn't have been more impressed. More

Asian | Uptown, Chicago

I was with a group who are experienced in Asian cuisine, and everyone loved his or her food. The service was attentive but not overly. Food was brought out promptly but not rushed. Drinks are ample. My favorite item on the menu is the quinoa chicken bowl By the way, your order can come with white rice, brown rice, quinoa, or any combination of the three. Great idea! More

Ethiopian | Uptown, Chicago

Excellent food - fresh and expertly prepared. Better value than at some of the better known Ethiopian restaurants in the city (i.e. lamb for $17.99 rather than $26.99). Hidden gem. More

Ethiopian | Uptown, Chicago

Tesfa’s family originates from a small village in the southernmost part of Ethiopia near the border of Kenya. Drought, tribal conflict, and war forced the family to move from place to place and business to business to find somewhere better to call home. Through it all the family always carried hope in their hearts.
In Ahmaric, the language of Ethiopia, Tesfa means “Hope.” We all hope to find somewhere better to call home. We all hope to provide something lasting for our family. We all hope to have something that contributes to making the world a better place. This is our hope. Tesfa Ethiopian Cuisine hopes to contribute to making our community a better place by serving fresh, healthy, authentic Ethiopian food, providing a gathering place for friends and family, and sharing in the hope for a better tomorrow.More
