“Great Ethiopian Food in Zürich”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Come here frequently, the food is always of excellent quality and plentiful. Service is good, fast considering the food not pre-prepared.

“Nice ethiopian restaurant”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We have been going there every year for the last three years at the beginning of january for the ethiopian new years day. Food is excellent and they have a friendly service. Can strongly recommend if you like to try typical ethiopian cuisine!

“Authentic Ethiopian Cuisine at Restaurant Meskerem in Zurich”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

I have travelled through Ethiopia during a total of ca. 2 months. On my trips I got to love Ethiopian traditional food - it is tasty, healthy and comes in many varieties. A few days ago I visited Restaurant Meskerem in Zurich and was thrilled to find that their cuisine is authentic Ethiopian style. The food is delicious, and Ethiopian drinks are available, including beer, tea, tej (honey wine). The injera taste somewhat differs from Ethiopia. However, this is probably due to the original ingredients not readily being available here. It in no way impairs the overall experience!
The service is very friendly, and people not familiar with Ethiopian cuisine get detailed explanations and recommendations. The restaurant is decorated Ethiopian style and also has the requisite TV screen. Ethiopian music is available. The place is quite small, so a reservation is recommended.

“Great Ethiopian food in Zürich!”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

We had a wonderful Ethiopian meal in New York this summer and went to Meskerem hoping to duplicate the experience. They did not disappoint - the service was very warm and friendly and the food was delicious. If you haven't tried Ethiopian food before, I'd recommend getting the combination plate to share, as this gives you a variety of great flavors. Also highly recommended is the honey wine.

We will definitely be back!
