Three of us went with two friends who are regulars. The food was simply amazing. Served traditional style. The bread was darker than I've seen before, but the waitress (owner's daughter, I think) explained the ingredients and that it is traditional. Service couldn't have been friendlier or more attentive. Then, in a total surprise, it turns out that the owner... More

This Is a wonderful place to experience authentic Ethiopian food. I love the spies Maya uses to cook. This is one of my top choices in this area for family gatherings or just a couple outing.

I had dinner here last night with friends who had enjoyed this restaurant after attending a conference in Colorado Springs last fall. What a great recommendation! The staff is so friendly and made excellent recommendations. Highly recommend!

Great Ethiopian food and the plating made it even more inviting. Service was excellent. The restaurant decor was great and the background music very soothing.

Our group had a task assigned by a study we were doing together: try a new culture and new cuisine. I had been to an Ethiopian restaurant on the east coast and enjoyed the really different foods and flavors there, so I suggested Uchenna so the others in the group could experience them. This is a little family-owned place in... More

I would have not even considered this place if it was not for trip advisor. The restaurant was tucked away in a corner of a strip mall. The decor is very casual. We were a little hesitant going in but when we saw they had quite a few customers, we went in. I had the lamb alecha and it was... More

We were initially hesitant to try this restaurant with 4 children, but so glad we did. We had a great experience with very tasty meals and a staff that made you feel like a part of their family. I would definitely return in the future.

We arrived within a half hour of closing . The owner was inhospitable and unfriendly interrupting us and seemingly offended by our basic and innocuous questions about the food which was unfamiliar to us . Based on that alone would not return . Maybe she was having a bad night but was very uncomfortable for the party .

This little restaurant is one of my personal favorites in Colorado Springs. It's located right along Old Colorado City, where there are lots of neat little places to check out and enjoy (Sweet Elephant across the street is a cute little winery and coffee shop also). After checking it out, this is a great spot to grab lunch or dinner!!... More

Never had Ethiopian food before and was excited to give it a try. The staff is very friendly and serve very tasty food. It's fun to eat with your hands using their unique bread. If you are up for a tasty adventure, give this place a try!
