What a delight, to find this gem of a restaurant here in Toronto. The food is delicious and the staff are super friendly. We went as two couples, and we shared a meat and veg platter for 4. We closed with a coffee ceremony - if you like strong coffee like me, I highly recommend it. The best part is the price - we walked out of there well under $100 for 4 people and we couldn't eat another bite ! I highly recommend it for all size groups and /or with children. There is a variety of menu items for all. African Palace won't disappoint !

Overpriced for the quantity and quality of food , we always eat Ethiopian food all over the world and this one is very average, service is below average and it is a cash only restaurant, food was on the cold side , waited long for the food to arrive , if you are handicapped then forget it, the restroom is in the basement with a narrow steep stairs.

Great Ethiopian food and wonderful staff at a hard-to-beat price. Definitely worth the trip out of the main tourist area.

This is the place to come for extremely tasty and outstandingly good value Ethiopian/Eritrean food that you eat with your fingers. It's a small, fully licensed restaurant on Bloor West at Dovercourt. You get platters (meat or vegetarian) which are enough for two or more people to share. A platter is a large circle of spongy teff injera flatbread with a number of different food items on top. You rip off pieces of injera with your fingers, fold the various platter items (including salad) into them, and eat. There's no sign of cutlery and no need for it. Note: the place isn't air-conditioned and they don't take cards.
