This is a great little find! It is tucked away in small strip of shops. The atmosphere is family friendly and unique in its decor. They offer both Ethiopian and Mediterranean food. My son and I opted for Ethiopian and my daughter chose Mediterranean. Everything was excellent! They do not serve beer or wine. The food was fresh and delicious.

I didn't even realize that I had walked by the restaurant multiple times, It's in the little strip right near the clock tower in Old Colorado City. I used to... More

Today was my first time at Uchenna. I love the atmosphere; very welcoming environment with great customer service! I had a mouthwatering veggie combo followed by yummy baklava for dessert which I absolutely love! If you are looking to eat out and enjoy delicious hearty healthy food then this is the place for you!

Chef Maya has moved her restaurant to the much bigger space at the converging angle of the same little mall in Old Colorado City. We have been eating here for years and the quality and ambiance just keeps getting better. Two nights ago we had the very best meal there yet! Whether you order from the Mediterranean menu or from...

Stopped here after awesome reviews. Only my second time to have Ethiopian. The place is very small - we were lucky to get a table. Sounds like having reservations is the better way to go. It was decorated with Ethiopian and assorted other knick knacks. The server was very nice. The coffee which was good was served on real china.... More

I was visiting the area a few years ago and a friend found this restaurant. I had never had Ethiopian food before, but it was a good discovery, and now I'm hooked. Good stuff.

Great food, very nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Place was packed so service was on the slow side. But the food was well worth the wait!
