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.

Great food, and a lot of it! The sampler "for two" easily fed a table of five, for a reasonable price, too.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
