Beware, the entrance to this restaurant is kind of weird. You have to enter from the store next door. Went for dinner last night and was delightfully surprised. We knew the food would be good because we were the only patrons who were not Ethiopian. There were about 12 other diners. The service was good (minus he language barrier- the... More

I normally do take out so that I can enjoy my finger food in private. I would recommend Dessie as its my favorite Ethiopian Resturant.

I like the food and the prices are good, but the service can be slow. I'm vegetarian so I can't vouch for the meat, but the veggie sampler is very good.
