Don't let the external appearance of this restaurant fool you. The outside may be a little rough around the edges, but Fassil offers Vancouverites (and tourists) a genuine taste of Ethiopian cuisine at very reasonable prices. My partner and I decided to visit this quaint...More

Went to Fassil with a friend and was extremely impressed. We had the Veggie combo and the lamb and they were both incredibly delicous and more then enough food for two people. Loved eating with your hands using the Injera to pick up the food....More

Lots to like about this place, food, service, ambience and as a plus they have quite decent homemade Tej (honey wine). Tried various samplers and mains - all delicious. My fav Ethiopian place in Van... Fassil easily beats all Ethiopian places on the drive.
