Our food is very much loved by all nationalities and some even call it "Heaven Food!". Very Unique and so delicious food. Remember this is a finger food - no fork or spoon.

Had an absolutely wonderful meal. Previously had been traveling into NYC for Ethiopian food. This was just as good and half the price. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and friendly servers. Meal was served promptly and waiter ofter returned to get us more drinks and injera. Easy street parking on the week night we went, but might have to look harder for a space on the weekend. Highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely go back again. If you are looking for a fancy upscale restaurant, this isn't the place - come here for the food!

I love abyssinian, the food is fantastic. The restaurant is a real gem - I don't know anywhere else where I can get food like Abyssinian. My favorite dish here is the Lamb Lega Tibs. My only gripe is that service can be pretty slow if you go on a weekend and it happens to be busy.
Response from the owner - 4 years ago
The Restaurant management body has realized service slowness especially when it gets busy. The main reason was every meal needs to be cooked afresh. The new management that took over the restaurant has designed ways to speed up service. We believe that slowness would be a history of past. Thanks for the honest comment though.

Very good food, definitely worth going back to. The only issue is no one knows about it! When we ate there, we were the only diners in the building. It was a strange experience, but as I said the food made up for it. If you are on the fence about trying Ethiopian food, try it here and just go with the 4 meat platter or the equal vegetable one. We got both and they were great. I can't say more great things about this place, but I can say they need more publicity!

This place is hidden pretty well in Hartford. There is seating available outside, where there is Jazz bands sometimes. The inside is very nice, the staff were very nice and all had a good sense of humor. The menu was full of unique choices and all at reasonable prices. However, I personally think the best part is HOW you eat the food, not WHAT you eat. I went there with friends and we had a blast. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who likes to try new things. My friends and I will surely go back many more times!!
