"Comfort food from the mountains of Ethiopia" is the daily fare at Ras Dashen Restaurant. For more than 16 years, our Ethiopian restaurant in Chicago, IL, has been serving up authentic dishes and an authentic dining experience. Vegetarians and omnivores alike have a multitude of options they can choose from in our extensive menu. Our traditional Ethiopian meals are served on a round of Injera (spongy, sour bread made from Teff grains). 100% gluten free Injera is also an option with your meal. All of our dishes are prepared by chef Zenash the same way they have been for thousands of years with bold spices and tangy sauces of the region. Our food is so unique, we're sure you'll want to come back again and again.

I went with two friends from out of town we shared the veggie sampler and a beef stew. It was delicious and the service was outstanding. Afterwards we ordered the rice pudding which was also good.

Everything about Ras Dashen was great. The staff are exceptionally friendly. The food is some of the best and most complex Ethiopian I’ve ever eaten.

Have been many times. Food is great, experience is fun. Service is always slow but if you have that mindset going in, the quality and flavors of the food make the wait well worthwhile.
