Uchenna is a truly interesting restaurant. It's worth a visit just to enjoy the wonderful art work that covers all the walls. I tried the Gomen (collard greens with ground beef and spices). It was served with the Ethiopian Bread called Injera (you actually eat...More

My family and I were visiting Colorado Springs for a wedding and arranged for lunch at Uchenna. Most of us were from out of town and had never eaten here before, nor had we experienced Ethiopian food previously. The owner of the restaurant, Maya, greeted...More

This place has some unique food options. It wasn't very busy and the place had a laid back feel- we went in for an early lunch so that could be the reason. The chocolate cake was awesome.

There are many restaurants serving excellent meals, but this is only one I've been to where warm hugs are freely added to the menu. Call it intentional salesmanship if you like. I call it uniquely authentic and divine.

If it's Uchenna for which you're looking, then look no further. This is my all-time favorite restaurant. There is really something special about Chef Maya.
