Another one bites the dust

CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED. MORE's the pity, this was such a tasty, unique, restaurant. It's sure to have a new site, as it is very popular, but for now, the developers have won.

No visit to Boulder is complete without a visit to Ras Kassas. If you like Authentic Ethiopian food this is the place to go. For those not familiar with Ethiopian Restaurants, each dish is brought out on one large platter to share, it is best to go with a large group to allow you to sample more offerings. The dishes...

This is a very good and pleasant restaurant. I have never been to a ethipian one so I cannot compare. My review is strictly for this one.. The restaurant is nicely adorned with some Ethiopian pictures, objects of art and spices for sale. Also the display of a local artist featuring Moroccan style pottery available... The tables are round and... More

The good: This restaurant is fabulous for the location - if you sit on the back patio it's right next to a rushing creek, and the sound is so relaxing, and it's pretty at night with the strings of tiny lights. The food is good, not the best Ethiopian we've had, but still very good. Service is fine. The bad:... More

Really tasty food...great cocktails...reasonably priced even when not during happy hour. The only reason I did not give it five out of five was that the service could have been a bit more attentive. They were very friendly but paid more attention to their "regulars." Never got offered a second cocktail or asked if we wanted anything else. (We didn't... More

I love their food. The vegetables, chicken, lamb and salad are all unique cultural preparations, tasty and served with a smile. Using the sponge bread to scoop us this large meal in small bites is deliciousness in every mouthful. Love this place.

Thay had a variety of food and it was very tasty! I would definitely recommend eating here. I was surprised to see they had lamb stew as one of the options.

Ras Kassa's is quite possibly my favourite restaurant. There isn't one criticism that I have. The service is warm, friendly, and thoughtful. The ambiance is lively yet comfortable. And the food is to die for. My partner took me here for the first time and he now makes fun of me for how enthusiastic I am about going every time... More
