“Expirament with a happy conclusion...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2009

Had never tried Ethiopian food before. Pleasantly surprised. Typically the dishes are quite spicy but not like Tabasco spicy. Very good meat and vegitarian dishes. Not a huge selection but we tried 5 dishes and enjoyed them all. Friendly, prompt service as well. Child friendly. Clean place. Not in the most upscale part of the city but don't let that fool you. It's a good place to try.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2008

I've finally found a place that can compete with the Nyala for best Ethiopian in Vancouver. Red Sea's injera was among the best I've ever tasted, and both the meat and vegetarian dishes were lovely - perfectly spiced and very delicious. The service was friendly and nonintrusive, and the prices are excellent for what you receive. Highly recommended.
