I’ve been coming to this restaurant for more than 15 years. Love their food esp. the kitfo but service and décor can be improved. On weekends especially Sunday for lunch there is a long wait to get in.

Awash is the best Ethiopian restaurant this side of town. Their menu doesn't have 'wots' but its not missed! A great vegetarian as well as non vegetarian experience, with everything made to order.

Amazing food, huge portions, great prize. Super chilled service (being Italian I really appreciate that. I hate it when they rush me!) Place may look not that good from the outside, but it truly is great. I will surely be back!

The experience here is completely Ethiopian, just dont expect to get your food right away, While delicious, this isnt the place to go in an attempt at a quick lunch. The food is prepared and placed on top of injera bread, a thick sourdough type...More
