How delightful to find good Ethiopian food in East Lansing! We enjoyed one of the feasts for multiple people and were pleased with everything we ate - lamb, chicken and tasty vegetables. The inclusion of beverages was a pleasant surprise.

This is our second opportunity to combine an MSU win in Basketball and a meal at Altu's. Once again we were very pleased. Even when we showed up close to the 2:30 PM closing time the staff was still friendly and welcoming. The food was very good. We went with a Vegetarian and a Meat lunch platter for 3 each. We will be back next year to see MSU win and to enjoy Ethiopian food.

We've eaten Ethiopian food all over, and our favorites are in DC, however, this place comes very close to the taste we had in DC.

Our four year old daughter throws up her arms in delight when we tell her we are taking a road trip from Grand Rapids to eat at Altu's. She screams, "Lima Beans", which are her favorite.

We don't eat meat, so we always get the vegetarian feast for two. Then, we will often add to our Injera bread additional dishes.

The food is very reasonably priced and there is PLENTY of food for everyone. We love this place and will take road trips JUST to eat here.

I started eating Ethiopian food 17 years ago in Detroit, MI. Altu's unfortunetely the only Ethiopian restaurant in the Lansing area. There food is good, but not as good as The Blue Nile's. The salad is always hit or miss. You either get fresh lettuce or you don't. The cabbage is always bland, but their lentils and beans are usually good. The man that usually runs the front counter is never very friendly like the owner is.
