This is a tiny, colorful, quaint, family run Ethiopian restaurant. While the menu is limited, the food is quite good the the staff is friendly. I think they're all family. The only drawback is that the service is a bit slow but what they lack in efficiency they make up for in delicious, home cooked food, served with a warm... More

Was in town for a workshop at CSU and went to Ras Ka on the advice of one of the students. Had never tried Ethiopian food before and was looking forward to the experience. Atmosphere was relaxed and the service was helpful, explaining the dish options on the menu. I ordered the white fish, roasted yams and other vegetables -... More

Though the restaurant is small, it was recently remodeled and is a huge improvement from the previous space. It has nice decor and a lovely ambiance. The cook/owner is all smiles and is willing to make adjustments to meals according to the individual's preference (ie, add different sauces, mix in some veggies). She had made her own special tea brew... More

The food is delicious and I cannot begin to say how wonderful the staff was. The owner is incredibly hospitable and kind. It was an absolute pleasure to dine here. We were fortunate enough to get to sample a little bit of everything; the yam dishes were definitely a hit. I would also highly recommend the tea!

This spot never disappoints. The owner is incredibly hospitable and so very nice. We enjoyed a potabella dish, kale, chickpeas, chicken, and a side salad and all were amazing. The kale and potabella were my personal favorites, but I highly suggest you let her know of any dietary restrictions and then let her choose what she prepares. Everything was amazing,... More

The food at Ras Ka is wonderful! It was a pleasure to meet and visit with the owner who has obviously put a lot of thought into the food she serves. The flavors were complex without being intimidating and everything had the "just made" freshness you can only get at a small restaurant that cooks everything to order. I was... More

Just off CSU campus, this little restaurant is worth a visit. This "one-woman show" is like dining in private kitchen of the proprietor. Hanna is a friendly and talented cook who serves up authentic and tasty dishes as you watch. The patrons sit at bar height tables and stools or at the 'bar' (but it's BYO). Most of the food... More

The meatballs in Ras Ka sauce were wonderful. Other food items tended towards over-salty. The owner is really friendly. A worthy little place to check out if you're adventurous and in the area.
