One of the best restaurant experiences ever

We came here because Uchenna was so highly rated on trip advisor and it did not disappoint. The reviews told us how good the food was but Maya, the restaurant's owner, would be the reason to come back. She is truly one of the finest people we had ever met and we were fortunate to have had some... read more

So we were out looking for food, and stumbled upon this little place. It's in a mall strip parking lot and I became really unsure of the place. Walked into it and was greeted by a little lady who was super sweet! First time to be anywhere near Mediterranean and Ethiopian food, but wanted to try something new. It was... More

Been here a few times. Excellent service, charismatic staff. Food is good, but not overwhelming. Pastries are excellent.

WOW! One of the best, most memorable, dining experiences we've ever had. Now some of the reviewers seem to have been to Ethiopia....or maybe have had many more experiences with that style of food...but just let me tell you, the food was incredible! As we all know the "food experience" is much more than just the food itself....there is the... More

I'm still sitting here at Uchenna, I could not leave without reviewing this place. The food is absolutely amazing! The Rose lemonade is the perfect compliment to my dish. I had a medium Gomen Besaega and had no idea what I was in for. It was so good I had to order one to take home with me. The staff... More

This is a late review, but a friend invited me to dinner in Colorado Springs last Thursday after a long week of classes. When I first walked in, I saw these amazing desserts that I wanted to try immediately. We were greeted and seated by the owner, who was very attentive to us. She was extremely kind and hospitable but... More

We wanted to try Ethiopian food. (The sign says "Ethiopian and Mediterranean.") The lady working there (maybe she's the owner) was so gracious and helpful. She showed me how to use the bread to scoop up the food, and was so pleasant. We ordered two different plates and shared. Glad we got the spicy/hot because it was just right. For... More

First of all, the workers and I believe the owner ( a small lady) were extremely kind. Sadly, that is where my good experience ends! Ethiopian food is one of favorites. I have had it cooked by friends who are from Ethiopia and been to some wonderful places in Boulder and Denver. After reading all the reviews I was so... More

I've never had Ethiopian food before, but am a big fan of trying new foods and expanding my horizons. When I saw Uchenna, I knew I would have to try it and am so glad I did! My sister and I ordered a couple of things to share so we could each try something new. We had the Miser Wat,... More

My husband and I consider Ethiopian one of our top favorite cuisines. As vegetarians, it is an easy menu to navigate. We were taking a quick trip up from New Mexico and saw the great reviews. We go there just before the Friday night rush. We ordered the vegetarian platter for 2. It consisted of three dishes and the bread.... More
