If you aren't familiar with Ethiopian cuisine and wonder if you'll like it, you should definitely try Lalibela. Over the years I have brought 30-40 different people here, most of whom had never tried Ethiopian food, and people have consistently loved it. I spent a...More

What a treat! The food was fantastic, and the service super friendly and warm. The combination platter you see here was under $20 and more than enough for one. Highly recommended.

Authentic and tasty food! The service was very, very friendly. Their menu, while having many authentic dishes, provide an explanation of the unfamiliar terms. There is also a guide explaining how to eat the dishes as well as some history of Ethiopian cuisine.

Want amazing food. Never disappoints. I ordered the combo platter as a take out dinner and ate it for 2days. Did not have to wait long at all. Food was fabulous. Very friendly staff. Thrilled that such a gem exists in Omaha.

Went to Lalibela knowing pretty much what we would get - amazing Ethiopian food. We had the ever popular combination plate along with an order of yil yil. Tasty, but wish I had ordered mild vs medium heat. The eating of the meal using hands...More
