Want to eat somewhere different? Want to be treated like family? Need a different atmosphere? Then come to this place! The food is very unique and very delicious. It's an experience like no other. I love this place and the people. It's a great place for families.

Ethiopian food, served family style, with lots of Injura to eat it with. Order your tibs (beef chunks) with various sauce and spice flavors. The ginger tea is awesome. This is not the place for a single dinner, but with a friend or group, it's great. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended.

It's been ages since I've had Ethiopian and it was super delicious and surprising to find on the west side of town. Great veggie platter:)

Walking into the restaurant, it is a small square room, we were warmly greeted and immediately seated. The menu is small but laid out to specifically detail each entree. I am a vegetarian so I chose the one 5... More

In a remote and industrial part of the city, habesha is in a little side strip mall and offers everything you would look for out of a hidden gem hole in the wall spot. Food is really very good with gigantic portions (comparatively speaking for ethiopian) at ~$10/dish. Food is not quite as good as Emanu, but still very good.... More
