“Delicious!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

This is a delicious Ethiopian restaurant in the old Jewish quarter. The food was a little spicy and very good. The owner is wonderful and speaks English and was very nice and informative. He also brought me a fork without me having to ask for one. It is just a couple of blocks from the main shopping area of the city, so there is plenty of street parking or you can walk from the train station. I enjoyed the number 16.

“Best Ethiopian in Frankfurt”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I've been coming here for over 15 years. Frankfurt has several good Ethiopian restaurants (and I've tried them all), this one is the best. Some have are a bit nicer decor or a cooler theme but NONE have better food. I LOVE Ethiopian food and have eaten it all over the (western) world.

The owner is the soul of friendliness. Food is clearly freshly prepared from quality ingredients.
I am vegetarian so my remarks on the food apply to the vegetarian dishes.

In a day and age when so many restaurants seem to rely on prepared ingredients I find myself more and more drawn to this small place which truly serves "Feel Good Food", as is their motto!

“Ethiopian taste in Frankfurt.”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Lalibela is a ethiopian restaurant that offers a mixed of vegetarian and meat food. The typical dishes are composed of vegetables and chicken or lamb meat like the Doro Wot, the national dish, with its delicious taste. Its posible to choose between mild and spice flavours. I also recomend to drink Dju Dju, a ghanaian beer, with flavours like mango, maracuya, banana. Definelity I recommend it to eat exotic and healthy also for vegeterians.

“Excellent!!! A taste of Ethiopia to the fullest!!”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Now this place is even better than the other Ethiopian restaurant we visited in Frankfurt. This place is much better and a whole lot more tastier AND the price is a lot cheaper which was shocking. If you ever had Ethiopian food in the past and you have a taste for it in Germany, you have to try this place. My wife and I drive from Kaiserslautern once a month just to visit this place. You will not be disappointed! Also, if you want to find where to get injera to take home for a cheaper price. Just ask the restaurant and they will tell you where to get it (which is about 2 min walk from the restaurant). Enjoy!!!
