I love to try foods from around the world in my travels, and here was another chance to do so. It is fun to have a taste of culture from across the globe, right in front of you. Two women were here, the owner and the chef. The food smelled great as it was being prepared. A plentiful amount came... More

I had never had this type of food in a restaurant before. We have friends from Chad so I know their food is delicious so I wanted to compare. I was not disappointed. It was delicious, the service was excellent, and it was definitely unique. Everyone should give this place a try!

I've been eating here since it was an actual market on the ground floor. I love the food. And the spiced tea... Really I have never left here feeling anything but stuffed and happy. The only down side is since you eat with your hands the smell stays with you and you want to come back almost immediately.

We arrived at 6 to an empty restaurant. The TV was blaring, but the woman at the counter signaled us to sit (she clearly didn't speak English). We waited for about 20 minutes and were about to leave when another woman came up front to help. She was able to turn the television down and take our order. It was... More

Our only disappointment with this dinner was the lack of patrons when we got there about 7 PM. Of course, that meant more and better attention to us! My suspicion, though, is that not enough people know about this culinary gem. It's worth the effort to get to its out of the way location. Pricing was very reasonable. We will... More

Scoping out the area near to our hotel, we were delighted to come across this African restaurant, and we're most intrigued about sampling authentic Ethiopian cuisine. The service provided was friendly and informative. We had some awareness of what to expect having read some of the prior reviews. We select a platter for two, which was a large sample selection...

I've been coming to this restaurant since it actually was a market that served food on the side. It is hands down my favorite place to eat in the Salt Lake Valley. The food is amazing. And if you get to know the staff they have some amazing stories. It's always a great experience here for myself and anyone I... More

The African Market is the first African restaurant I have eaten at after being introduced to African food at an event a few years ago. I forgot how good the food was until eating here! Definitely come hungry! The people working there were really nice and so helpful in figuring out what different menu items were and how the process... More

We eat at the African Market often and really like their food. The injera or also called budena (the ladies that work there are from the Oromia region and this is what they call it) is tasty. We've traveled to Ethiopia and find the African Market's food to be very authentic. Please keep in mind the African way is much... More
