Food is good and filling. Typical of nice Etheopean food. Not sure the waitress spoke fluent English but was very attentive.

That was a nice discovery. Ethiopian food is quite good. Lots of favors, spicy but not much, healthy and nutritious. We tried both sambusa as appetizer: beef and lentils, and liked both. Then, one dish of lamb (stew) and one beef (also stew) with two vegetable sides each, allowing us to trie all sides! Again very flavorful and a different... More

Pretty place with lots of wood and brick. Went for lunch and the place was very busy. Well worth the wait. Staff was very professional. The Ethiopian food was excellent and served promptly. A great menu makes it easy for the uninitiated to order. Can't wait to go back for dinner!

Good Ethiopian food. Adequate surroundings. Pleasant service. Could be better, but a good meal nonetheless.

Our family enjoyed a plentiful platter of meat and vegetable portions served with injera. The restaurant was clean and decor was appealing. We especially enjoyed the friendly waitress. Coffee was top notch!

I was in town for an interview, and needed to find something to do with myself. It had been years since I'd been to an Ethiopian restaurant, but Meskerem did not disappoint. I got meat combo #1, which came with 3 meats dishes and unlimited injera, enough food for 2 normal people for 12$. I almost finished it (and I'm... More

I love this place. I actually found it by accident as I was driving by, but I'm glad I did. The atmosphere is charming, and the staff are very gracious and welcoming. The menu was detailed in its descriptions for those who have never had Ethiopian food, and whatever wasn't described the waitress made sure to explain what it was.... More

Oh wow. I don't even know how I can write about how amazing the food and service was here, but darn it! I'll try! Everything was delicious and the portions are ridiculously huge for the price you pay. Our waitress was so kind and very eager to help us out with anything we needed. And the food..OH GOD. I can't...
