We went on a Saturday night when the entire city was flooded with people to watch the various games. The places was easy to find and not crowded at all. Perfect for us since it was located close to our hotel. We ordered the lamb combination for two. That was plenty of delicious food, a variety of vegetables with four... More

Nice selection of Ethiopian appetizers, main dishes including good selection of lamb dishes. Very basic restaurant with good food.

We waited for a few minutes not seeing an employee and just one table so we were concerned at first. Also, it was difficult to find but those were the only negatives. It was as authentic as Ethiopian places in Atlanta I've been and prices well. Beer and wine helped. Great experience!

My wife and I had a pretty terrible experience here this past weekend. We arrived around 2:30pm to an almost empty restaurant. We ordered and then the wait began. After sitting for about a half an hour waiting (with only 2 other tables in the restaurant) a large Ethiopian or Eritrean party (maybe 20 people) arrived. All of the adults... More

If you are in the mood for trying new things stop by and have a great dinner in this place. It is quiet and nice for families you may try the packages for 4 people and it will be more than enough. This kind of pancakes which are nice and soft are your utensils, so you will be eating with... More

The spicy lamb is served with sides of various lentils and vegetables on a local flatbread called injera. Perfect food for eating with fingers. Great way to share food. Certainly a different presentation from other cuisines. Food is very flavorful and service is good.

The food was good but we waited 20+ minutes for it and we were 1 out of 2 tables in the restaurant at the time. Wouldn't recommend it for those who want to sit down and eat quickly. We kept hearing a child screaming from the back of the kitchen too. Not sure I'd go back.

We were passing thru on a road trip. This is near our hotel. We were so happy to see an ethnic restaurant after only fast food. This was great food. Service was excellent. We had the Major Sampler and it was a great choice. I'm gluten sensitive so could not have the traditional bread. They said if you give them... More

I came here with 6 friends after the Indy Mini this past weekend and we had a great experience! We were all first timers for Ethiopian food, and it was recommended that we try a combo to sample a bit of everything, which we did. There was some lamb, beef, chicken, and all kinds of lentils and veggies. The staff... More

Greatly enjoyed our first visit to Major Restaurant. Went with another couple and ordered the 4 person vegetarian sampler. The presentation was beautiful, and the food was excellent. We literally wiped the plate clean. Will definitely be dining here again.

Thank EjsIndy
