A small long lobby that seems to be set in the 70's, the entrance at one end and the wash basin at the other, fronting the restroom. This is what you see when you locate this restaurant under an equally insignificant board. We had gone...More

We love Ethiopian food and hate crowds so this was a perfect choice! It's away from the touristy area but an easy walk to Broadway's theater district. We combined two combos and then realized that two of the dishes were on both. However, there wasn't...More

Staff helpfully asks if you'd like to split entrees, or if everyone wants their own. We chose to split. Injera is included, and you eat using the injera and your hands. They look like thin tortillas. Food was excellent. Had some heat and full of...More

Had never had Ethiopian food before but would have again. The lovely lady who served us helped us order and explained how to eat the food since you don't get a fork or knife. We had gone to another Ethiopian place on 10th Avenue but...More

Very good food. Wine bar. Single toilet almost in the kitchen. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Near to comedy clubs.

If you're looking for something new and love spicy food, you must go there! Good food, attention, portions and atmosphere. You don't eat with cutlery, just your hands and a "tortilla".

Walked in around 12:30pm on a Saturday, the place was empty, which made us a bit nervous but the A rating posted at the door and the aroma enticed us to go in, and we were not disappointed. We shared the vegetable combo which was...More

I was on a business trip and staying in Times Square. This little Ethiopian restaurant is certainly a breath of fresh air, and was exactly what the doctor ordered to counteract the horrible chain restaurants of the Times Square area. The restaurant is in Hell's...More

In Hell's Kitchen - where any kind of food you want can be had, this place serves basic Ethiopian in a setting that feels like Hell's Kitchen of 10-20 years ago - ie: clean but not updated...almost like an ethnic diner. Good place at the...More

I am confused by the Trip Advisor listing as Meskerem. I know and love the restaurant on West 47th Street as Meske.
