Where to begin!? This little out of the way restaurant serves up delicious food in huge potions, and provides service with a smile. The family owned restaurant provides Eritrean (East Africa) food that can be ordered spicy or mild. Most meals are served on a large pancake like flatbread called injera. Our waitress, the owner's wife, was so charming and... More

So we started looking for it in Indianapolis and :-) we found "Major". Every time we have new friends visiting we are taking them to Major restaurant. Everyone enjoyed it!! Their homemade wine is...

What a find! We had a fantastic experience that we will cherish for years to come. 4 of us decided to split the Major combination plate for 3. It arrived on a large communal plate with 5 different meat dishes and 8 different vegetable dishes. Everything was delicious and the portions were huge. The service and hospitality from the husband... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant and had no idea how things worked. The waitress was very helpful. The Shrimp Wot was very good. I suggest after your meal you order the Coffee Celebration. They roast the bean and bring them out to the table for you to small and let them cool. Things run at a little... More

Kudos to Major, this restaurant is fantastic. My party started with the lentils sambussa, and then each ordered our own giant entrees; shrimp for him and mild lentils for me. This was our first visit so we were surprised when we saw the portions and definitely could have split a meal. But everything was so delicious. Do the coffee celebration... More

This was a great dining experience. The had a platter for two which included chicken, beef, and two types of lamb along with eight vegetables. The food is made to order and they can customize your preference for spiciness. We came in 30 minutes before closing time on a weekday and two more tables walked in after us. Needless to... More

What an awesome dining experience. The waitstaff was very friendly. The meal is served traditionally on INJERA, the traditional Ethiopian-Eritrea bread. It is delicious. My meal had 2 types of lentils, spinach, collard greens, a serving of Ye-Beg Wot, and a few other small helpings of various sides to try. The waitress explained what each was when she served us....
