My wife loved this meal, because she loves Middle Eastern food. The owner, Maya, cooked everything to our liking. She was great on the service. It was a little bit hard to find in Old Colorado City, but is off Colorado Avenue on the south...More

I've never tried Ethiopian food, so I have no comparison. This food was really good. There are more vegetrian options than anything else, but there a great deal of vegan options. The lady who waited on us was extremely helpful

Awesome, one word review! The lamb dish (Yebeg Alecha) was incredible! I could eat that all day and not be sick of it. And my husband got the raw beef (Kitfo) because we wanted to go out of our comfort zone and oh my goodness...More

The restaurant is nestled in a corner of an old strip mall so it can be hard to find at first. The food is unique and the owner is a sweet little old lady from Africa who will treat you like a King or Queen....More

Located in a strip mall type setting in the historic section of Colorado Springs. A little hard to find, but worth the search. We arrived near the end of the lunch service, and despite our late arrival and our group of 5, they were more...More

The food was awesome. The coffee was awesome. The baklava was awesome. I only wish the portions were a little bigger but I will definitely be coming back.

Delightful Ethiopian dinner tonight at an unpretentious restaurant in the old city section of Colorado Springs. The food was delicious and Mama Maya was the ultimate hostess. We can't wait to return!

There are many restaurants serving excellent meals, but this is only one I've been to where warm hugs are freely added to the menu. Call it intentional salesmanship if you like. I call it uniquely authentic and divine.

If it's Uchenna for which you're looking, then look no further. This is my all-time favorite restaurant. There is really something special about Chef Maya.
