I usually do not give restaurants a high rating but I had to! What a lovely place to have supper and authentic Eritrean food! My server, Kyle was so warm and friendly. His recommendrations were spot on! He greeted me like an old friend. I would definitely return!

We loved this restaurant! The food is so delicious and the atmosphere is charming and relaxing. This is a beautiful, cozy restaurant serving food that is just out-of-this-world fantastic. Just the best Ethiopian food anywhere with lovely service. The staff made everyone relaxed and comfortable and were very helpful in answering questions.

love good authentic ethnic cuisine and this fits the bill. Had the recommended favorite which is different "meza" style small dishes served on a type of large pancake ....the lamb was flavorful, salad fresh and all other dishes (which I'm not sure what they were,) were all great. Service friendly and quick

As vegetarians we enjoy Ethiopian/Eritrean food whenever we can. Muzita is an excellent restaurant and we enjoyed our meal here. The food is great, the service is good. It is a pain to find parking in this area, but otherwise it is a great place.

WOW! We look for Eritrean/Ethiopian restaurants when we travel. This one is just super! You eat everything with the injera - a spongy bread which you use to scoop up the delicious foods. Everything served family style so lots of opportunity to try many flavors. We had two types of lentils, cabbage, beef, and zucchini-mushroom-chick pea dishes. So many great... More

Our hotel manager suggested we visit this restaurant because I mentioned I have a gluten allergy. It was phenomenal! We kept making "mmm" noises throughout our late lunch. Loved the lamb, chicken, mango martini, and the lentils! All in University Heights, which is an adorable area!

My husband and I had a late lunch/ early dinner so there was no crowd. Our server was Melissa and she was fabulous. It was our first time having Eithiopian food and she was very knowledgeable and helpful in making suggestions. We shared the mushroom appetizer and had two entrees, braised chicken and a prawn dish. The braised chicken was... More
