Excellent!

Not the fanciest place, but the food was excellent. We had a combination of veggie and fish. Nice combination of spices. It was my friends first time having Ethiopoan food, and she loved it also. I will definitely return.

Four of us visited Gojo for a late dinner (about 9pm) whilst on holiday in Vancouver. We had spotted it a few days before so thought we'd give it a try. We hadn't eaten Ethiopian food before so we didn't really know what to expect but it was fantastic. The server went out of his way to accommodate us and... More

I walked past this restaurant for years always meaning to give it a try. Well I finally did and all I can say is that I wish I had gone sooner! Amazing food, so flavorful and delicious! Having never tried Ethiopian food, we asked for a recommendation and it exceeded our expectations. The samosas were the best I have ever... More

We are four who have decided to explore the ethnic restaurants of Vancouver BC. Our first foray was a winner. I was given the honour of the first pick and I chose Gojo Cafe on Commercial Dr. It was excellent. We picked a lunchtime outing because, OK let's face it we're old er. Lunch was a good choice because it... More

We have gone to Gojo a number of times as it is one of our favourite spots. The food here is authentic, made on premise and so full of flavour. The cook uses rich spices which brings on into the exotic nature of this food for being on the wetcoast of Canada. The injira is amazing. The last time we... More

I've had Ethiopian food in other establishments in Vancouver and this is bar far the tastiest! The dishes are so traditional but unique at the same time. The injera here has a consistency parallel to no other - I don't know how they make it so much better than everyone else. The interior of the restaurant looks like an Ethiopian... More

A Yummy surprise to say the least. This is a cute and warm atomsphere, designed to replicate the inside of an Ethiopian hut. The service was good and the server was attentive to my requests. I had a Veggie combo that was out of this world. Excellent flavours and totally filling, I couldn't eat it all, had to box about... More
