The food is delicious at this cozy, laid-back restaurant. You must definitely go with a group of people so that you can order the combination platters and share all the tasty dishes that are bursting with unique flavors. I look forward to returning to this...More

We live about an hour South of the Cleveland area, and finally made the trip to eat at Zoma today. We were so pleased with our experience that we will certainly return for more. The food was excellent, our service great. We've heard that it...More

The Ethiopian sampler plate featured 11 different selections. Four selections were flavorable and more spicy, and seven selections were very flavorable and tasty. This was my first experience dining at an Ethiopian Restaurant so the flat spongy light bread is torn into a piece to...More

Eight of us went in a reservation and they were ready and attentive. We ordered two mixed veggie/neat platters and Firfir. We all ate as much as we wanted and still took 4 boxes of food home! Great service. Good coffee. Reasonable prices. Not fancy...More
