$25 for 2 people with a great variety of meats and lentils on Ethiopian bread. Hard to complain. Service is good, and fast. 2 thumbs up

We opted for the combo which was large platter to share of soft folded bread covered with sample meat and vegetable dishes delicately spiced and uniquely flavoured, nothing like we tasted before. Basic setting but clean and colourful with friendly staff.
Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

Hot, spicy or any way you want it! Cheap eats served on large fresh flat breads, sans cutlery! Of course you can ask for cutlery! Our 11 and 13yo boys loved the concept! Very friendly staff.

Great food with good Ethiopian beer. We had two omnivores and two vegans that shared a platter each, both were beautifully rich and flavoursome. Service was friendly and efficient. Recommend the beef tartare. There was to much to eat with the two orders. Very cheap and tasty night out.

We were here for a friends birthday party and there were eleven of us. Some of us like spicy food and some prefer things tasty, but not so hot. Abesha was able to cater to all of us.

We had three share platters and several other dishes to share. This was plenty of food for all and the flavours were fantastic.

The owner who served us was very friendly and the food was served quite quickly.

It is always a good idea if you are going to drink beer to drink the beer that matches the food, and the St George lager is a perfect drink to go with the range of tastes and textures on offer on each of the share platters.

Abesha is also a very cheap place to eat, with drinks included it was less than twenty dollars per head. Abesha makes a trip to Footscray very worthwhile. Highly recommended
