“Great eats! Neat experience!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

A really neat experience trying Ethiopian cuisine in an authentic way. Went with my husband, a friend, and a married couple with baby. All were able to find something they liked and really enjoyed it. Wait staff was patient in explaining unknown food :)

“Memorable, savory and delightful Ethiopian fare”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Interestingly Rochester NY has excellent Ethiopian fare, one being Abyssinia (now dormant) and the just dined at Taste of Ethiopia. In a quiet area of downtown Rochester but adjacent to High Falls District, Cascade District and Frontier Field, this is an excellent restaurant, featuring reasonably priced portions of lamb, chicken, beef and vegetarian fare, uniformly tasty and delicious. A quiet unpretentious place, it had a lively crowd on a late spring evening on a Saturday. A selection of native coffees and beverages are also available.

“Excellent Food,best injera!”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

We celebrated my husband's birthday last night! Great ambiance with traditional music. We order two samplers and each was perfect. The hostess will serve you by placing the selections on to your injera if you like. Extra injera is also offered. We chose to sit at a table but you also can sit traditionally with a mesob if you prefer. This is a brand new restaurant! It's downtown and easily accessible if you are on your way to GeVa, Frontier,Blue Cross Arena, or another event. Reservations will be taken. The owner greets the guests and is dressed in traditional Ethiopian garb. A vegetarian buffet is available during weekday lunches as well as take out. Perfect!
