One of the most terrible experiences I ever had at a restaurant. The two of us walk and notice the heating was off making the restaurant ice cold. We sat down and after 10mins I waved to the woman in the kitchen who then brought us menus. I realized she was playing both the cook and waitress. There was a older woman in the back with her talking and taking pictures who was not an employee. Obvious red flag. We were finally able to order our food after about 20mins. We heard the food is good so we decided to wait it out. BIG MISTAKE! 40 minutes go by.... and nothing. Enough was enough so we decided to walk out with a couple next to us who was fed up with the service too.
Fortunately, we found another restaurant which turned out to be fantastic so the night wasn't a complete disaster. NEVER AGAIN

I love Ethiopian and this was a good experience. Very reasonable prices, tasty food, good service. Only downside was the credit/debit card machine was not working and I was glad I had just enough cash for meal & tip.

Delicious food, good service, family friendly restaurant. We were looking for a vegetarian restaurant for our daughter and found this restaurant. She had a chick-pea stew with flat bread and she thought it was a little spicy, but delicious. I had the chicken kabobs with vegetarian rice - it was spectacular. Don't forget to bring cash, as they don't take credit cards.

We ate at Gatur's for lunch on a weekday. We found it in a Buffalo Travel Guide. The food was great but the food took 45 minutes. It is totally worth waiting. You can go for lunch or dinner. They also have Mediterranean food. We got hummus which was really good. They also have a wide selection of Ethiopian and Mediterranean food on the menu. If you go to Buffalo go to Gatur's.

A weekday lunch at Gatur's was an eminently satisfying experience. Our group of four adults shared two "combo" plates, and we had more than enough. Each plate came with at least one meat (chicken, beef or lamb) and two or more vegetables (lentils, potatoes, beets, cabbage). The efficient wait staff asked our seasoning preferences and we got "spicy." BYOB beer or wine; water and soft drinks are served. Combo plates are built on large pieces of Ethiopian flat bread (Injerra) with additional pieces served on the side. Two of us had not had Ethiopian food since 1970s Washington, D.C. While the cuisine is more common now, to find it is still a treat and we were glad we had this opportunity in the Allentown section of Buffalo.
