Great Food

I rode my bike to the area and there was a bike rack within view of the front door so very convenient to lock up my bicycle. Entered and was immediately greeted and sat in a front booth/table that I could people watch and also keep an eye on the bike. I have eaten Ethiopian before but it had... read more

Only complaint one piece didn't have a lot of filling in it but they were tasty. For dinner we had the Meskerem combo everything that... More

Meskherem has authentic, very tasty Ethiopian food. You can get real Tef Injera - a must! If you like Ethiopian this is the place to go!

My friend and I like to try different things to eat. Not having a clue what was near Tower Grove we pulled up Tripadvisor to see. Never tried Ethiopian food so we decided to check it out. It was a bit pricy for what we got but was definitely something we will be talking about for a long time. Food... More

First time having Ethiopian food, my wife heard about this place and so we tried it out for dinner. I'm glad we went. The food is mostly curry based. We ordered the sampler for two. It came out on a 16in pizza pan with samples of beef in a spicy and average sauce, two servings of chickpeas in spicy and... More

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
