Wonderful reviews lead us here. Needless to say I will be stopping again. Excellent food. Order the combination (or vegetarian) and spiced tea. Either meal is enough for two so order accordingly and enjoy. We sure did.

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
