If you're looking for something new and love spicy food, you must go there! Good food, attention, portions and atmosphere. You don't eat with cutlery, just your hands and a "tortilla".

Walked in around 12:30pm on a Saturday, the place was empty, which made us a bit nervous but the A rating posted at the door and the aroma enticed us to go in, and we were not disappointed. We shared the vegetable combo which was delicious and full of flavor. Our waitress pointed out the spicier dishes, as my mother does not tolerate spice which she appreciated, the atmosphere was nice, the service was good, and my daughter who requested Ethiopian was super happy. I'll visit again when I'm back in the city! BTW there is no sign posting name of restaurant, so look for address!

Just off 9th on W47th lies a wonderful Ethiopian delight! Friendly service, intimate setting and traditional Ethiopian favorites. Traditional home made Injira bread and multiple options of vegetables and meats. We were greeted by a young woman who's family owns and runs the restaurant. She had a huge smile and was very helpful in helping us choose what was right for us. Eventually chose the multiple options served on injira. Lentels, peas, collards, chickpeas, stringbeans, garlic onions etc. All homemade in the true Ethiopian style. Got the Lamb Tibs too! What a wonderful meal.

I was on a business trip and staying in Times Square. This little Ethiopian restaurant is certainly a breath of fresh air, and was exactly what the doctor ordered to counteract the horrible chain restaurants of the Times Square area. The restaurant is in Hell's Kitchen, which is a short walk from Times Square. The service was friendly, The bill was reasonable, and the food was tasty. I asked the waitress to recommend a vegetarian dish and she suggested the chickpeas. They were wonderfully spicy and excellent. Highly recommended.

By the way, Trip Advisor has the name of this restaurant wrong. The restaurant on 47th St. is called Meske.
