Gojjo is my go to neighbor bar for my West Philadelphia friends and me. They have about seven beers on draught and bottles, including Daura, a gluten free beer. I hang out there about every two weeks, relaxing with friends, having a beer or two and eventually ordering one of the several Ethiopian dishes on the menu, like the kitfo,... More

We organized a group dinner here. Arrived only to find no tables set up. It was as if the reservation we made never existed. They were just generally disorganized. The place is also woefully understaffed.The servers are nice but it takes forever for food to arrive. And here's the kicker-after all the delays and disorganization our party had to deal... More

This is a great place to go and spend an evening. You may work your way through multiple rounds of drinks before your food arrives--both the service and the kitchen are quite slow--but the final product is quite tasty for a good price. There are also some good Indian dishes on the menu. Yes, it's an Ethiopian restaurant, but there... More

Very good Ethiopian Food. My favorite Dish is the Beef Tibs over rice spicy! I also enjoy the Beef Sambosa and the Ethiopian Cheese Steak. I eat at this place very often.

The food is not goodconsidering this restaurant is located very close to at least 3 other restaurants that are tasty. The drinks were wayyy to strong. The music... More

The place is hit or miss and it seems to be more miss than hit. And the owners! The ownership is a disaster. I saw the owner ask a patron to leave simply because he claimed he did not like the way the patron looked at him!! Yes, it's an Ethiopian ownership and the owner is Ethiopian, but in the... More

Service is always slow...beer is sometimes off, like they didn't clean the lines (from having bartended I know this is what it is) and some of the local characters are obnoxious...wish... More
