Traveling across the country we took a chance on this Ethiopian/Eritrean restaurant near the airport. It’s the only place we had a meal in Indianapolis—what good luck! The Major combination offered a chance to taste a lot of dishes and they were beautifully spiced. Service...More

It’s in an unassuming strip mall right the next to 465, but once inside you know you have found something special. The four of us split the Major Combo which had enough variety to suit all of us. We will be back!

We had a really tasty meal tonight in our first visit to Major Restaurant. We ordered the Major Combination for 4, which was the right amount of food, in addition to being very good.

In short it was like a milder slightly slander version of Indian food, to me at least. That's not a bad thing. All the photos are just about what you get. Small portions of a variety of things served on a sourdough like pancake that...More
