Best Ethiopian food in Vancouver!

We found this little gem by accident, when our usual Ethiopian spot was closed. While the decor is lacking, the food makes up for it, by a mile! We've tried all Ethiopian restaurants in the Vancouver / Burnaby area, and this one has the best food at the best prices, by far!! We recently tried one... read more

We really enjoyed this little cafe. We thought is was nicely and creatively done inside (though simple). The man who served us was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious! I had the spicy chicken something--so delicious! The vegetable dishes were good, but paled in comparison to that chicken dish. We love eating Ethipoian style using the delicious semi-sour... More

Hands down the best in the city, and great value. We live on commercial near a number of other ethiopian spots, but always opt for Red Sea

I'm long overdue to write a review for this cute family owned restaurant. As it is my favorite ethnic restaurant in Vancouver I never miss the opportunity to take my family over whenever they're visiting. My boyfriend and I have visited this friendly place on several occasions and are always happy to return. The owners are super friendly with a... More

Had never tried Ethiopian food before. Pleasantly surprised. Typically the dishes are quite spicy but not like Tabasco spicy. Very good meat and vegitarian dishes. Not a huge selection but we tried 5 dishes and enjoyed them all. Friendly, prompt service as well. Child friendly. Clean place. Not in the most upscale part of the city but don't let that... More

I've finally found a place that can compete with the Nyala for best Ethiopian in Vancouver. Red Sea's injera was among the best I've ever tasted, and both the meat and vegetarian dishes were lovely - perfectly spiced and very delicious. The service was friendly and nonintrusive, and the prices are excellent for what you receive. Highly recommended.
