Delicious family-owned Ethiopian restaurant. Highly recommend trying one or more of the platters so you get to try a little bit of everything.

Mild flavor. Hint of injera fermentation. Less saucy. Neatly, well packed for Uber Eats. You don't find TIBS SAMPLER in Others. Tibs as main dish is available in other menus. As a sampler, different meats are stir fried like a fajita. A bit dry that is prolly why I don't normally order. Overcooked proteins for my taste, but cult ... read more

I’ve only eaten Ethiopian food in sit down restaurants before. I didn’t know if it would translate well to take out but it totally does. Just ordered delivery from Ethiopian Diamond to treat myself. I ordered the Vegetarian Sampler for one meal that comes with two sambusas. It was a super tasty, healthy platter that will probably en ... read more

Loved absolutely everything I've had from here (which is quite a lot of things partially thanks to the sampler platters). Meals are pricey, but both well worth the cost and are easily all 2 servings.

Delicious Ethiopian food, generous portions, reliable delivery, and an easy-to-use online ordering system on their website.

Always delicious, always fresh and always friendly!

I am a fan of Ethiopian food. This was a unique a wonderful experience though. It's like Ethiopian cuisine was on a whole other level. Will order again in the future.

Absolutely delicious, huge portions of food! Fantastic for takeout, and I can’t wait to go in person once Covid is over. Definitely recommend supporting this wonderful Black-owned business! Truly a gem in the neighborhood.

My favorite neighborhood meal. I order the vegetarian sampler each time and it's enough food to last for at least 2 meals. The food is always so fresh and flavorful. Highly recommend to anyone!

Excellent place for vegetarian and gluten-free food. I’m a big fan of the unique “vegetarian fish” (chickpea dumpling) dish. The veggie sampler is my go-to to get through 2020! They also have an awesome chocolate lava cake that can be made gluten free if you leave out some of the extras.

The restaurant was clean and okay. If you know what to order, then this place is quite good. People working here donot speak or can understand English which makes it hard for the first timers. Other than that everything was good.
Rajeev Bevara via - Oct 17, 2020
Ethiopian Diamond is one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago! Friendly staff, tasty food, and an overall hospitable environment. If you are looking to try a meal outside of the norm -(no forks/utensils involved) then you should consider this one!

I remember bringing my family here for the first time 9 years ago (2011) after I found their deal on Groupon. The place was packed and customers are diverse for a reason.

Ethiopian Diamond is one of our neighborhood go-to restaurants. The servers are always very friendly. The food is delicious! It has vegetarian options as well as lamb, beef, chicken, shrimp and tilapia. We always leave satisfied but overly stuffed!
