A unique experience

Ethiopian food is unusual in middle America, and this restaurant does it extremely well. The family and the service were also friendly, gracious, and hospitable. A great culinary and cultural treat!

Great food and good to finally find something different and run locally (not a chain)! This place is very tiny so likely best for groups of 2-4.

We went in expecting a five star experience and we were treated to one. The interior decor instantly translates you to a very different magical place steeped with traditions and colors and culture. The staff are friendly and patient. The great tradition of Ethiopian culture is community meals. Although that is not possible in a restaurant, Uchenna strives hard to... More

I had never had Ethiopian food before. Uchenna is a family owned restaurant. It is located about 2.5 miles from Colorado Springs center. I was warmly greeted by the owner when I arrived. The service is fantastic as they really care about their customers. I had the Vegetarian Combo (Combination of Misser Alecha, Misser Wat, Shiro Wat). It was all... More

I really enjoyed Uchenna and would take all of my family and friends here. On one of my visits I had asked for some extra onion and tomato cut up on the side with some cilantro. The owner came out and seemed offended that I would ask such a thing....lol. However she did give me a little extra side. Tonight,... More

We went as a large group and the service was so nice! Very accommodating and wonderful food. We cannot wait to go back! The only reason why I gave it a 4 out of 5 was because of the atmosphere.

Located in Old Town surrounded by souvenir shops, boutiques, art galleries, and other cool restaurants. Food is delishous. We ordered some entrées and the waitress showed us the correct way to eating it, without silverware! Amazing chocolate cake for desert.
