If eating with your fingers is what you like, this is your restaurant. My wife and I ordered the sample platter that comes with a couple of different meats, potatoe, and corn, all served on top of a light, spongy bread. The same bread is also served to you on a plate. Tear off a chunk of the bread, and... More

We all zeroed in on the community platter that comes with a variety of small dishes served on a brass plate with the Ethiopian bread on the side. No spoons, forks or knives...just tear your bread and dip into whatever colourful dish catches your fancy first. But one must try all the dishes to savour the taste and different flavours...chickpea,... More

Me skeeter used to be very good every time I went there. The last few times I've been there the food was not as fresh or good. I really wish they would have stronger quality control because when they are good, they are very good.

Really enjoyed dinner here. Friendly and helpful server, fun eating experience sans utensils, eating totally with fingers and scooping with the light thin bread, great flavors, much fun. They offer samples of the sweet honey wine. Prices are very moderate. Very good value. I did not find the environment particularly nice and the bathroom was not clean, but then neither... More

This past week two of my sons and i enjoyed a dinner at Meskerem. While this was a new type of food for me, I was very pleasantly surprised. A little prior reading about Ethiopian food was most helpful in understanding the type of food, seasoning and presentation. Since most of the food may be prepared ahead, service is very... More

I'm familiar with Ethiopian cuisine since I once worked near an excellent Ethiopian restaurant, so I was eager to check this out when my sister's family decided to return here. They had had a good experience, and I knew that I enjoyed that type of cuisine.... so I was eager to check the quality. The menu was varied with both... More

It was our first time to try Ethiopian food. The staff was very helpful and the food was fabulous. Now I really wish there was a restaurant like this in Little Rock where we live.

If you're on the line about trying this place--do it!!!! Service is great and the food is amazing! I love Ethiopian food and this is one of the best places I've been to (after sampling them throughout the States). The avocado appetizer I've never had at another Ethiopian place; but it's delicious! The vegetarian entrees were delicious and my dining... More

We tried Meskerem purely on a whim. Had no idea what Ethiopian cuisine would taste like, but we had a little idea of what it would probably look like after seeing an old Anthony Bourdain episode showing him visiting an Ethiopian place in DC. SO, we figured "why not?" We had a hard time deciding on a dish so we... More
