Culinary and cultural trip to East Africa! Unique, delicious food. Warm hospitality. Lively place with a diverse crowd of people. Their injera is delicious, as well as their Vege Sampler with a Fillet of Fish. The menu is heavy in meat but they have plenty...More

If you are in the St. Paul area, Fasika would be one of the places i would encourage you to try out. They serve you large potions! I ordered injera and shiro which is a common dish, however, I felt like the shiro was a...More

The food is good, but space is limited and crowded, the seats are worn and broke, and the service is very slow. It's worth coming once because of the rave reviews people give, but perhaps not for a return visit. And this definitely isn't a...More

My husband and I got the combination platter here. The vegetarian dishes were good but had a similar flavor. The meat was low quality and each dish was either too tough or too fatty. There is better Ethiopian food on the West Bank of Minneapolis.

If you are Ethiopian in this area, this is is where I will find you eating out. Ambience a bit lacking. However you would come here for the food. Great vegetarian options. Consider some Zantac 😋
