Been going to this restaurant since it's opening years ago. Great for spicy authentic Ethiopian. Owners are very kind and try their best to please. Can get crowded on weekends.

Best out of the three Ethiopian restaurants I have eaten in NJ. It's a cute local place, away from the downtown restaurants. It takes a little while to get your food, but it is worth the wait, but then again that's how I feel about all the times I have Ethiopian food. :)

I have eaten here a few times and it has always been quite good. It is inexpensive and you can bring your own wine or beer.

Lalibela may look like a hole in the wall from the outside, but the food is unique and delicious. Their prices are fair as well. It is cozy inside, and is a BYOB.

We love this little but culinary impressive restaurant. The Ngira is always fresh and delicious. In my opinion it is as good or better than any of the other Ethiopian restaurants including the other one in South Orange, and the one in Montclair.

The staff is also very friendly.

The restaurant is also very Vegetarian friendly.
