Enjoyable Evening

We had an enjoyable evening with friends. The menu had all of the typical Ethiopian choices, plus a meat and veggie combos. We also tried the Honey Wine for the first time. It was interesting, not sure if I would try that again though. All of the food was delicious and we will certainly be back.

This is an excellent choice if you’re looking for something different and open to trying new food flavors and combinations. It’s especially good for a large group because everyone shares the food and discovers what they like or not. If food is a journey this is a good starting point. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. There... More

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.
