My meal at Addis Ababa Restaurant checked off many boxes in my books. The decor was transformative and extremely appealing to this world traveller, complemented by an amiable service. The Vegetable Platter was as good as it gets with the different pulses and vegetables having a differentiated flavor profile and cooked to the right degree of doneness. The Awaze Beef Tibs had the right flavors but a slightly better cut would have made it perfect. The mild Dorowat chicken dish was a total surprise, and its savoriness equaled the usual spicy version. With this type of cooking in a warm inviting environment, I will be returning to this wonderful place for one of my favorite cuisines.

I've ordered from here a few times and the food is always delicious, nice portions and beautifully seasoned! If you like Ethiopian - then be sure to stop by!

Parking can be a bear - read the signs closely and do not park in either lot on the sides of the building. We take street parking.

The restaurant is small and you will need reservations for parties larger than 4.

The food was tasty - I have had higher quality meat, but the vegetables were delicious. I recommend the peas, lentils, and cabbage.

We always eat too much injera, but they keep it coming. No lime for my beer, the waitress was distant.

We went for dinner. You eat with your hands at a high or low table. The food and service was good. Looks like a place locals eat.
