“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

My wife, daughter, and I had never eaten Ethiopian food, but went with a friend who recommended this restaurant. The food was great, portions large, and prices reasonable for Chicago. We each ordered an entree, and they were all served on a large tray with some side dishes for communal style dining. Injera, an Ethiopian bread similar to thin pancakes is provided, and rather than use silverware, you tear off pieces of injera and use that to pick up the food. We'll go again the next time we are in the area.

“Good but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

It was my first visit to an Ethiopian restaurant but the people I went with had eaten in Ethiopian restaurants before both in Chicago and other cities. The food was tasty, however, my friends felt it was overpriced. Also, we were a large group and there was some confusion about the bill, which was ultimately resolved satisfactorily.

“Delicious food served by friendly waitstaff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

Ethiopian Diamond is a great little local restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. We would suggest ordering a sampler type platter if you have never tried Ethiopian food. The vegetarian dishes are fabulous. If you have friends or children with adventurous palates, it is a fun evening out. Kids get a kick out of using the injera bread with their hands to eat instead of using a fork. Ethiopian food has a great depth of flavor, but the ingredients are not unusual--meat, onions, peppers, split peas, chick peas, potatoes, carrots, etc.

“Delicious...but come hungry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012 via mobile

I am a newb when it comes to Ethiopian restaurants -- this was my first -- but the quality of the food was excellent, and they pass the "spicy" test... they're not afraid to give you dishes with real kick. I understand that the bread is an integral component in this type of cuisine, and at this restaurant it was awesome.

Also, a pretty reasonable feast.

“Delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Friends took us to this restaurant. As we had never eaten ethiopian food before, it was quite an experience! The food was really awesome and staff was so friendly! Will definitely go back next time we're in town. Huge selection of vegetarian dishes.
