The food here is amazing! Everything was excellently spiced, the tea was delicious, and the fish was perfectly fried. The only issue was the service. We were seated very quickly, but our meal took over 2 hours. The appetizers came shortly after we ordered, but it was over an hour until our entrée arrived. When it was time to pay the bill, we couldn't get a hold of our waitress and had to ask the manager to take our check.
Food was great and the service was excellent. We will be going back.
Food was excellent. They give you more than you could possibly eat at one sitting! Decor could use a little attention but other than that, a great find for authentic Ethiopian food.
Fantastic experience, as always. I very much appreciate the high quality of the food, in addition to the warm, attentive service.
LOVE the food at Diamond! I could live off their entire vegetarian menu and I am not even a vegetarian. I really think they have some of the best Ethiopian food in Chicago. The service was awkward, and it was VERY slow. Pleasant staff, but they didn't give much direction when we were seated. Also, when we were finished the server sort of shamed us for not wanting to take the leftover food with us. LOVE the food, but only go when I can tolerate the service there.
Always a great experience. Food is delicious, the staff is warm and friendly.
Very good. Menu can be a bit intimidating for first timers, but not to worry, the waiter will tell you what to eat 😀
AMAZING! food was just out of this earth, we had lamb and beef, it came accompanied with a smoky pea "babaganush", salad and collard greens! We were 2 at the table food could've serve 3-4 easily! They have a cool variety of beer, including a red ale African beer that was amazing! Colorful, vibrant place and the people working there the nicest!! Really!!! GO!! Worth it! Could start going once a month at least forever! Haha
Delicious savory dishes that don't disappoint
Large portions. Be ready to feast!
Excellent food. Helpful and attentive waitstaff. Will return.
Excellent food! We come back over and over again with family and friends.
Ethiopian diamond has outstanding customer service & the food is deliciously flavorful! It's the perfect place for those who prefer gluten free and even vegetarians! I recommend the Yebeg Tibs Alicha if you like lamb. I also love the tea as well!
Such a wonderful friendly and delicious restaurant. All the food was amazing and such a fun experience to eat with ones hands and learn a little about Ethiopian cuisine.
First time visit. Definitely will return. The meat and veggie sampler was very good. Next time would focus more on favorites like the lamb and chicken, and less on the veggies. The injera bread less sour than other places (a plus in my book). Try the Tusker Lager. Excellent service.
