I had the lamb gyro and it was the freshest most flavorful tasting gyro I have ever had. Will most definitely come back next year when we visit Colorado.

This is one of the nicest Ethiopian restaurants we've been in and the food was delicious. As vegetarians we can rely on Ethiopian food to be healthfully prepared without excess oils. Uchenna not only provided a healthy meal but a tasty one as well. We had the vegetarian combo with a side of Gomen (collard greens) and it was quite... More

It was the best food i have ever tried. I have been there in 2013..somewhere in july i think. That was my first experience in a Ethiopian restaurant and I've been really surprise how good it was. I'm used to eat Indian food which is very spiced and flavorful, but Ethiopian touch my stomach soul right on the good spot.... More

Went there for lunch after seeing all the great reviews. Tried both lamb dishes and they were fine. Nothing impressive, but decent food. Atmosphere was mediocre. Only two other groups were in the restaurant and the decor is nothing to brag about. Maya and the one server were nice enough but extremely quiet and difficult to hear. Overpriced for lunch... More

It's difficult to accurately rate Uchenna because my words probably won't be able to fully describe the unique and wonderful experience. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is wonderful, and Chef Maya is the most sweet and genuine person I've ever met. Trying not to sound cliché, there seems to be an immediate sense of peace upon stepping inside, and... More

This is while we were on vacation. This was my first experience at an Ethiopian cuisine restaurant. The staff was fantastic, the food was great. I love how they brought out samples of their teas, I wished all restaurants would do this! A small place, but not crowded. It was a little warm inside the day we visited. There was... More

First of all, let's get past the "I've never eaten Ethiopian food before" thing. Ingredients like chicken, beef, lamb, shrimp, various vegetables, lentils, and chickpeas are featured in Uchenna's dishes. Come try the food, the desert, and the unique Ethiopian coffee. If all you do is eat this wonderful food, you will be delightfully amazed. However, the food accounted for... More

The owner of the restaurant is a delightful Ethiopian woman who gave us the history of the food and culture of her country. The food was excellent. She informed us that we must eat everything with our hands and finish everything that she served -- very cute lady. Atmosphere suffers a bit with the fluorescent lighting and there is no... More

I cannot say enough about this restaurant. We were visiting family in Colorado Springs and visited Uchenna's for dinner. The host Maya, made us feel like family...welcoming us to her restaurant and hugging my brother and sister in law like they were long lost friends (they had only been her once before, almost twelve months prior) We all chose the...

We had a great time at Uchenna on the 24th of July! The food was wonderful. Complex flavors, artfully prepared. What really made our meal special was the owner. Seeing our hungry party of 10 (including 4 children), she brought out a few things for us to sample while we waited on our entrees. She reappeared several times during the... More
