Great restaurant. Not too fancy but the food doesn’t suffer at all from that, it’s not too noisy and the price is lower than you’d pay for 2 at other places where the food isn’t better. We’ll go back.

Good quality meal and a very fair price. The food was quite tasty. We had the fish and also the meat combination. Scrumptious. The service was also good. Will visit again.

Cute little Ethiopian restaurant, clean inside and outside. Their food is very good, they have plenty of meat and veggie dishes. I frequent dine at Abesha Restaurant and I recommend it highly. Cheers.

First time trying Ethiopian food. Really enjoyed it. Wasn't expecting the bread to be crepe like and sourdough in taste. The meat combo was excellent.

First time eating Ethiopian food, so I can't compare. My friend said the lamb dish was good, but the veggie dishes were not great.

Celebrating my son’s 18th birthday — he had a great time. Food is good, sharing an intimate meal with a young adult is special. The service was good, but the sense of community and kindness was great 🙏🏽

This place is so good! We were a party of 9 and we all had a nice time. Easy to converse, not noisy everything delicious and plenty of injera!

Brought senior participants for an outing and they love the food, service and the place suggesting on coming back. The serving portion is right for the price. Sam is an excellent host and very accommodating. I will definitely recommend this place to my friends.

I was there with 2 girlfriends. Perfect setting for girls' lunch date. Food was really good, and they suggested right amount (in fact we added another dish because we were still hungry)
Parking is tough but manageable.
