My husband and I have been here a few times now and we have always had a great experience. The food is delicious (we always end up getting a sampling platter of some sort), comes in generous portions, and they are very gluten free friendly! The restaurant atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, its a great place to catch up with... More

We always end up ordering pretty much the same thing: the cooked vegetable stew sampling platter (kale, beets, chickpeas, etc.) and /or the lamb shish-kebab and/or the chicken and egg Moroccan stew which are all very delicious and filling. Their honey wine is the best thing on the planet. Great service too.

This was our second visit. Great food and great pricing. We had the shared dinner for 4 and had 3 alcoholic beverages and the bill was under 70.00 with tax and tip. Great value!

This is the 3rd time this Alberta couple has been to WASS. Never been disappointed. The servings are generous and the levels of flavour superb.

My boyfriend and I liked eating here. It was nice to try something new, and the flavours of the different Ethiopian dishes were delicious and not too salty. There were some low points to the meal, for instance our meat curries offered very little meat, but the overall quantity of food provided for the price was good, and we both... More

Wanting some good food while visiting my mom in the hospital, I decided to give Wass a try. The food was very good. My friend enjoyed the Wass Special with Lamb, while I had the vegetarian platter. It was full of 6 kinds of yummy vegetarian fare. It would be a great place to share a bunch of dishes with... More

(My visit was not in August 2012 but thats the last option Trip Advisor is giving me). My coworker and I each purchased a Groupon for Wass, I called ahead one day to ask if I could use it for take out, the woman said I could. I decided not to use it that day and we both decided to... More

This restaurant has quickly become one of my all time favorites. The food is always spiced perfectly and at the right temperature. The experience is like no other, you don't eat with a knife and fork, you use injera, a spongy bread to scoop the food from the platter. The staff is always friendly, service is quick and Wasi, the... More

Injera is a yeast-risen flatbread with a unique, slightly spongy texture.We didn't like the taste or texture of the Injera and later i talked to vegan friend who goes there also wished they would offer other types of flatbread. Overall the food was good but most of it like baby food and because we couldn't eat the injera we had... More
