We had just flown into Portland from Pensacola, and we were eager for Ethiopian food. The desk manager at our hotel suggested Gojo, saying it ia good food, good value for the money, and people keep coming back. We had the Veg combo (on injera)...More

We went here recently with a group of coworkers and it was an ok experience. We all seemed to like the injerra well enough, however there seemed to be a large discrepancy in how much the meat was enjoyed. The beef and lamb dishes were...More

Back when I lived in Portland in the 1980s Alberta wasn't known for its restaurants, but now there are quite a few and my current favorite is Gojo Ethiopian. My wife ate there once before and liked it so much she took me back on...More

We just had lunch at Gojo. As it was early, we were their only customers. The owner made some suggestions (at my request), and we enjoyed every bite. The restaurant was very clean and tidy, as was the rest room. We'll definitely go back!

Love the tibs here, so we made the drive to the restaurant, which, according to their hours, closed at 9pm on that day. Arrived at 6:45pm to find the doors locked with closed sign displayed. People inside, but obviously not accepting customers. Disappointing.

Salem, Oregon has no Ethiopian restaurants; we have to go to Portland whenever we eat Ethiopian, so we only go if we're doing something else. We've been trying all the different restaurants around, and Gojo was yet a different take, with fabulous food. I love...More

The food here was decent, but this place needs to be reevaluated for cleanliness. The bathroom was GROSS. Poop all over the toilet and pee all over the wall. This is not just an off day you could tell it hadn't been cleaned in a...More

I was really impressed by the food here. The restaurant is at the far, west end of Alberta and looking at it from the outside, it doesn't look like much. But the food was very well done. We had the veggie combination dish and a...More
