Food here is very good. And the prices can not be beat. Two drinks, plus food for two = $30. Service was very personable and welcoming. Food was fresh and so delicious. Highly recommended!

Also probably last time trying Ethiopian. The food was exactly as pictured, it just wasn't for us. The injera bread is vinegary and filling, the meat and spinach were very flavourful. If we went back we'd try a platter with more options. Staff was friendly.

This is a quaint little restaurant that has amazing Ethiopian cuisine. Get ready to use your hands. And try the combo for 2. It’s all very good. Also had the kitfoi which was very good. And the owners are also very nice.

We went with friends for lunch to experience Ethiopian cuisine. We shared the Fassil combo and the Lamb. The combo had chicken, two lentil dishes, cabbage, Spinach and the Lamb. No all spicy but very tasty. Service was good.

Don't let the outside of the building scare you off. Fassil is in an area that is not nice to look at, but once you are inside, the experience is great. The food is well prepared, tasty, and they will make it as mild or...More
