“A taste of authentic Africa”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Ethiopian food is hard to describe as there is no other food on the planet that is like it. It is an amazing blend of fine African spices that stimulate your senses like no other food I have ever tasted. The bread (Injera) it is served with is one of a kind and has an amazing taste of its own. Having grown up in Africa and having lived in Ethiopia for 18 years I can truly say Desta is as authentic as it gets. I also recommend their traditional coffee and tea, as you may already know some of the finest coffee in the word is grown in southern Ethiopia. If you have not tried it you have missed out in a big way.

Perfect spice; however, not too hot for westerners! The injari bread comes seperately and isn't under the portions (which is helpful, if your dining mate is a germaphobe). I always order the veggie platter and that is plenty for two. Also, try their ridiculously-evil-good lemon cake! It is the perfect combination of rich, yet light. Wonderful staff and elegant modern atmosphere. Don't let the neighborhood fool you, it's safe to eat here at night and they are open late. Highly recommend!
