This restaurant is great because it is authentic. It is not Americanized like so many "ethnic" restaurants in the cities. The food was good, unique and like nothing I've ever had before. For sure a fun experience.

My husband and I got the combination platter here. The vegetarian dishes were good but had a similar flavor. The meat was low quality and each dish was either too tough or too fatty. There is better Ethiopian food on the West Bank of Minneapolis.

I came here because I love Ethiopian food and I was heading to a show at Turf Club... I ordered chicken samosas (which were entirely forgettable) and the lamb sampler plate. I am by no means an expert on injera; however, mine seemed too moist...More

My wife and I went to Fasika's last weekend. While I am admittedly not the biggest fan of Ethiopian cuisine my wife absolutely love it. Well, to my surprise Fasika's lived up to the fine reviews that people have provided. We did a vegetarian dish...More

Great food. Doro wat and the chicken combination plate was delicious. Very crowded for a Monday night... proving that the food is probably the best Ethiopian food in the Twin Cities
