If you are new to eating Ethiopian food, I recommend the E2 for the meat eaters and the vegetarian sampling for those that don't. Both are pictured here.
Verified authentic by Ethiopian cab drivers. Go for one of the Taste of Ethiopia combos. Visit ChicagoCabFare.com for a full list of 50+ authentic ethnic restaurants in Chicago.
The veggie combo is a great way to explore dishes and it's not badly priced. Our kids love the njerra bread which is naturally gluten free.
Food was delicious-service atrocious. We had a quick question about the menu & the guy (owner?) actually said "I'm too busy to explain this," and walked away. The waitress later threw napkins at us.
This place is amazing. Get the Tour or Taste of Ethiopian so you can sample lots of dishes with your table
Food is yum. Order lamb or chicken with boiled egg. Lentils to die for.. try both Ethiopean and one Kenyan beer.
If this is your first time here, yes -- eat with your hands. Use the breading to pick up meats and veggies.
My favorite Ethiopian restaurant. Love the doro watt and all the spicy tibs. Spicy dish not for the weak!
Truly Amazing! When your down south in Atlanta try Desta Ethiopian Kitchen you will also love it!
One of the tastiest places in Chicago. I don't think there is a bad item on the menu.
Taste of Ethiopia was amazing, not sure worth $38 for 2 but great nonetheless.
I am in love witht the "taste of ethiopia" veggie combo. It is 16$ well spent.
The vegetarian sampler is excellent, and the "tour of Ethiopia" meal is a good value.
Great for vegans/vegetarians. Good service, fun environment
One if the few businesses where its actually kind of OKAY to use the typeface Papyrus!
Awful service. Small portions. Food much better (and cheaper) at Ras Dashen. Skip it.
Even if you're not vegetarian, try the vegetarian combo. Delicious!
The food is good here, without question, but have you tried the hand dryer in the men's room? WOW!
The food is amazing, despite being written and described on the menu in Papyrus font.
Can't go wrong with the sambuso and Shrimp watt. Also, BYOW!
Everything is amazing particularly the Yebeg Tibbs Watt!
Door tibbs without green pepper, sprinkled with lemon juice. It's my favesies.
order a Hakim Stout to stand up to the wonderfully spicy fare! :)
Bedele beer is absolutely delicious. A must try!
Vegetarian sampler on injera is soo yummy.
They offer gluten free injera! Yum!
The Shrimp Watt the best thing I tried.
Get the vege Taste Of Ethiopia. It's vegan and amazing!
Awesome--ask very politely for dark bread
BYOB! The spicy shrimp is fab
If only i can remember the names of the dish
Asa tibs (tilapia) is amazing
Great for first-timers!
They have the best honey wine
Try the sampler plates.
