Delicious food, big portions, friendly and fast service. I love that they include complimentary sambusa with the veggie sampler. The hot tea is amazing. Really spicy and soothing. Highly recommend. Out of everything, my favorites were the quosta, yemisir wat, shimbra asa. They gave us a lemon wedge, and actually that was quite good o ... read more

If you haven’t tried Ethiopian, I would highly recommend you do if you like Mediterranean food or Southern Asian cuisine. No sparing the spice nor overall flavor. This place is ideal for group dining. My only regret is not taking pics of the food so y’all can see how awesome it is! Also, tables were spaced out and the staff strictly ... read more

Diamond is always a go to. A little pricey in comparison to other Ethiopian restaurants that I frequent but... always a great experience.

This was my first visiting Ethiopian Diamond and the food was amazing!!!! As you can see, we tried some of everything. I’m definitely coming back with my family.

Awesome place! Good food, great service. Need more high chairs for kids rather than that we love the place!
Dolly Lulu via google.com - Aug 23, 2021
We had the non-veg sampler and the veg-sampler. There were four of us and each dish was for two people. We were famished, and so we could actually finish it all. But on a regular day, the “two people”quantity they serve is enough for a party of three. The chicken was really well made. But the lentils were out of this world - really ... read more

Spacious place with nice speedy service. Food is great, served on big plates/trays. Interesting thing...you will be eating with your hands ..not an easy thing but worth trying. Decoration on walls is trying to get you a little feel of Ethiopia.

I'm familiar with the ethiopian food. Diamond is an excellent place to dine in. Very friendly staff. Bunna (coffee) is excellent too. I visited the place twice in a week while in Chicago.

Friendly service. Food was like eating above average taste, clean, homemade dinner. Enjoyed the African eating style of using Njera bread instead of forks. Honey wine so pleasant.
Patricia Johnson via google.com - Jul 21, 2021
Great food, and a lot of it! The sampler "for two" easily fed a table of five, for a reasonable price, too.

Wonderful food and service. We stopped by for lunch a couple weeks ago and it was so delicious. Definitely recommend the lamb and also trying the honey wine if you haven’t before!

I have been eating here since the 90s . The staff is awesome friendly kind warm and genuine. The food is even better. Well prepared, lots of it, no short cuts, no skimpy tapas style b.s. HERE YOU EAT. Here you get to respect hard working people . Here you feel welcomed and your business appreciated.

Always fantastic food - a genre of food that I wish had its own chain of restaurants all over Chicagoland.

I came here a few weeks ago on April 14 . My mom and I this was our first time here . We loved Ethiopian food in general. I had the vegetarian sample platter.

Second time we’ve had takeout from here in the last few months. This place is SO good! I recommend both the meat and the vegetarian samplers to try a bunch of things in one meal. So thankful to have this gem of a restaurant in my neighborhood.

Some construction and slower traffic on Sheridan on the way here. Parking is a challenge. We found a spot on the residential street by it on Glenlake avenue. We ordered the vegetarian sampler for two, diamond salad, chicken sambusa and lentil sambusa, dorot tibs wat and some cinnamon tea too. No hot cloth here, our waiter told us our ... read more

The food was really good. The best dish you have to try is the Doro wat. The traditional Ethiopian dish which is definitely the best thing on the menu. Nice and flavourful this dish is a must try. The injira which comes with this supplements it nicely. Sambusa is very similar to the Indian Samosa and a good choice for an appetizer. Y ... read more
