Love, love, love this place!!!! A group of family and friends went following a movie, and we wee very pleasantly surprised. It was my mother's first time having Ethiopian, and she loved it! The food was spectacular - and the best part? 100% Teff Injera!...More

Waiter forgot parts of the order. Slow service. Sunday lunch. Not as good as in the past. Under new management.

Not a fancy place, it's tucked away lower level in the Mission Valley Shopping Center. The waitstaff was friendly, the food tasty and authentic (well, the injerra was made from wheat not teff, but that doesn't bother me.) There are mostly tables and chairs, plus...More

I recently dined at Abyssinia. It is a very casual place with basic decor. But it appeared clean in the dining area. When I was ordering they had both Coke and Pepsi items on the menu so I assumed these would be cans. I ordered...More

Authentic Ethiopian food, above average, in my experience, for Addis Ababa. A friendly atmosphere with attentive service. In the lower level of the main building of the Avent Ferry shopping center. A large menu so there are a lot of choices, and the spice level...More

Came here for lunch and the food was really good! I used to come here all the time when I lived in the area, and the food is still delicious. The portion sizes seem small, but most Ethiopian resturants serve similar sized portions and once...More

Modest decor (if thematic), quiet and uncrowded. Friendly enough service/waitress. Not particularly explanatory or descriptive, despite our having announced first visit and some guests' unfamiliarity with cuisine in type or flavors. But we worked through it with our own enthusiasm. Several ordered African red wine,...More
