Coming from Chicago, seeing an Ethiopian place in Fort Collins was so exciting, and it did not disappoint. The food was absolutely fantastic and not expensive at all, especially for how much you got (my stomach feels like it'll burst!). The staff was super friendly and the owner even came or to greet us- I think she does all the... More

We wanted to try something different and this was a find! Recommend you try the traditional seating which also means traditional eating (sans cutlery). I had the lamb trio (spicy) and my wife got beef Gored-Gored. We had spiced tea and then Ethiopian sparkling mineral water. The food was absolutely awesome! We did the gluten free bread and it was...

We were craving Ethiopian food so decided we'd go there for a special family meal on Christmas Eve day. As always, the food was freshly prepared and delicious. My hubby's favorite thing here is shuro but it is not on the lunch menu. We didn't realize this as we usually eat there at dinner time. What made our experience even... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Fort Collins! After spending a few weeks in Ethiopia I can vouch that the food is authentic and top notch! On par or potentially better than the best food I found in Ethiopia

First time visiting, second time having Ethiopian food. It was exactly like the amazing restaurant we tried in San Diego. The service was perfect and overall we loved it! Try the honey wine.

She grinds her own spices, only buys organic, ccoks like her grandparents do?!? How is this not some $40 a plate, trendy place. A lot of meat and veggie combo. Cooking/service/product were great. Very excited to eat here again. 0 complaints.

I must admit to being a little concerned about Ethiopian cuisine. I had never tried it before but my daughter really wanted us to try this restaurant as she had heard good things. It truly was delicious! The server was helpful in describing the dishes and in her recommendations and we both very much enjoyed the food, which was filling... More

I have Celiac Disease and there are 2 restaurants that I feel completely comfortable eating at in Fort Collins. Nyala is at the top of that list! The cook/owner takes great care of her customers. The food is some of the best food that I have ever eaten. I had no idea that cabbage and mushrooms could taste so good.... More

A tiny gem just of College Ave. Greeted at the door by the owner who patiently taught us an introduction to Ethiopian foods. A fascinating complex of flavors, very different than American fare. e will return - there's lots more to learn and taste!
