So delicious. A little pricier but worth it. The portion sizes are great and there isn't one thing on the menu that isn't delicious.

This is the best Ethiopian place in town. Both in food quality and price.

So delicious! We ordered the vegetarian sampler for 2 and everything was amazing, but our favorites were the Dinich Alicha and Yemisir Wat. I've been there in person a few times, too, and delivery was just as good (and super fast!). Some of my favorite Ethiopian food that I've had.

Ordered delivery during pandemic times. I got the veggie sampler which came with 2 sambusas! The sambusas (lentil) were divine. The 6 dishes in the veggie sampler were also delicious, each having its own unique flavor. I loved the gomen and the yemisir wat. Highly recommended!

Ordered takeout and loved absolutely everything from both the vegetarian and meat samplers. Our meals were ready quickly and the staff we met at pick-up were extremely friendly and even made us laugh! Can't wait to return and try other menu items. Thank you Ethiopian Diamond for supplying the neighborhood with delicious and flavorful ... read more

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. It's an awesome experience to be introduced to authentic Ethiopian cuisine. We tried the taste of Ethiopia platter (pictured), to be enjoyed in a communal way, rich ... read more

Diamond is amazing! Their meat sampler and veggie sample always makes my night. Top that off with some mouthwatering sambusas and you are in for a treat. There are days when sheltering in my house has me down so I place an order at Diamond and immediately my spirits are lifted. Thank you Diamond for always making my meals the highlig ... read more

Delicious!
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!

Love the family vibe here and the Doro Tibs Watt is our number 1 favorite on the menu. We go there often and will always come back. Best Ethiopian food in Chicago hands down. Also, amazing family who owns and operates.

We arrived late, almost at the closing time buy they were willing to serve us. We seated and the lady asked us what we wanted to eat. She was really helpful for helping us to chose the right dishes. We took to samplers of Ethiopian food and a coffee. It was really good. You have a very good atmosphere and inside the place you have a ... read more

My favorite Ethiopian joint in the city. Always let our server pick the assorted platter out for us. Something for the entire family.

Excellent food and drinks!
Steve Crook via google.com - Jan 25, 2020
A solid place, but for my money Ras Dashen or Demeera is a better choice.
Jackson Smith via google.com - Jan 21, 2020
The food is superb worthy of 5 stars, and the wait staff recommendations are spot on. The communal style food plating is a fun experience. Genuine Ethiopian recipes, no "fusion" style food here, just authentic plates and appetizers.

This place has great food, great drinks, cute bartender, great hospitality, and more. I loved my experience here. The music was great the culture, the feel. The whole set up.

As I have Celiac's and restaurants are really tough for me, but with no wheat flour used in their dishes Ethiopian food is a perfect option for me. Great food, great bread, and great honey wine.

Great Ethiopian food. Bring a large group and an appetite.

Great lunch!! I wish I could convince my wife to eat here. I think she has a problem with the lack of forks. In any case the food is very tasty. I have no problem eating with my fingers.

Huge portions and great service. The owner himself was walking around and attending to patrons. They also have a bar and servers also serve as bartenders.

Very good, authentic Ethiopian food. Their menu represented all the significant regional dishes. Even had St George beer!
 Friendly, welcoming staff. Ambiance was not very Ethiopian, but did not detract from a fine meal. Try the combinations!

A taste of Ethiopia
This place lives up too its name, it's one of edgewater jewels. The food is good, the atmosphere is celestial, and the staff is very friendly.

How many words can I use to describe authentic?! This place has it all! The flavors and the textures take you right back home! Cardamon tea is just the icing on the cake. Spicy is just right and mild really is very mild. The vegetables are fresh and full of flavor. Lentils are fantastic, beef is out of this world! If you only ... read more
