Was looking for something different and authentic in Colorado Springs for our usual business trip and I am glad I found this restaurant. The food is authentic and carefully prepared. The hostess is also your waitress and she explains everything you need to know as well as demonstrates to you how to eat the food the Ethiopian way. Loved the... More

My wife and I visited last night and had a very enjoyable meal. I'd read the good reviews and wanted to give it a try. Having never eaten Ethiopian food, we had no idea what to expect. Our sever was Nayla, the daughter of the restaurant owner, and she quickly put us at ease. Although the restaurant was almost full,... More

Uchenna is a nice restaurant with outstanding food, but what makes it stand out is the great love and attention with which each guest is treated to by Chef Maya. Go for the exceptional food, stay for the beautiful experience.

We enjoyed our meal there. It was nicely spiced and used fresh tasting vegetables. I recommend the $3 upgrade to the chicken/beef/lamb tibs entree which adds three vegetables to the meal.

The aroma of spices draw you to this restaurant. Rose-water lemonade, chicken with basmati rice & lamb alecha with injera are out of the world. Maya was an awesome host. Her gesture of getting us a box of dessert for the road showed that she cared for her customers. Loved this place and will go back here when I'm in... More

My boyfriend and I went last night and were blown away by everything. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. Chef Maya was very kind and it warmed my heart to see someone so passionate. The food was very flavorful (even with the spicy option) and the portions were perfectly sized. I could taste the love that was put into this... More

We first had Uchenna years ago. IT was the best food I have ever eaten. WE went back 7 months later, and Chef Maya knew who we were, where we sat, and what we ordered. That was amazing to me. I have been back several dozen times since. No matter what you order, its amazing. Hands down best food in... More

Three of us went with two friends who are regulars. The food was simply amazing. Served traditional style. The bread was darker than I've seen before, but the waitress (owner's daughter, I think) explained the ingredients and that it is traditional. Service couldn't have been friendlier or more attentive. Then, in a total surprise, it turns out that the owner... More

This Is a wonderful place to experience authentic Ethiopian food. I love the spies Maya uses to cook. This is one of my top choices in this area for family gatherings or just a couple outing.
