We were walking around Hells Kitchen after a big day out in the city, looking for something to eat. Walk past this restaurant then came back deciding to try something different.
Ambience OK food very very nice. Would recommend this to everyone. Lots of vegetarian options, we had a combo of vegetarian and meat.
We just asked the hostess to serve us her recommendations.

Do yourself a flavour and give this place a go. :) YUM

My first Ethiopian experience. Found this place because some friends that live in NYC took us there. We had 2 vegetarian combos plus a third veggie dish.. food was delicious and I enjoyed this way of eating with no cutlery! They said that the portions have been getting smaller recently and reading the comments below it looks like other people think the same. Overall it was great, prices very reasonable!

Every trip to NYC, I visit Meskerem. The food is just delicious! I love the Tibs Wat & Beef Sambusas!
It’s a bit run down, but the food makes that irrelevant.

Very small restaurant below street level. Service was quick and orderly. We split the veggie and meat samplers (great way to go if you don't know which stew to choose). Food was very good.
