Asmara has been around for years, but it's been years since we've been there. If you've not been to an Ethiopian restaurant, it's a unique experience. We had both a vegetarian combination and a meat combination. Two such orders were plenty for three people. The food was delicious,the service excellent and the prices moderate; you can't ask for much more... More
I went to this place today for lunch with my family. Very friendly service. We ordered veg combo with beef and other one lamb , family style. Nice decor, attached some photos. I gave this place 5 because I have nothing negative to say.

We had one 3 types of meat dish combination platter ($12.95) and one 3 vegetable dish combination platter ($12.95). The meats were: Ziggni/Key Watt (strips of marinated... More
I was never into Ethiopian food until my sister introduced me to this place. Ive always ordered the #21 Doro & Gomen...not spicy. I don't even eat greens but I love this dish. It has injera which has a vinegar like taste (I love vinegar taste), which is to eat your food with. It's looks almost spongy but it's good.... More
