Philly is a great place for Ethiopian and Abyssinia has many vegan options. Plus there's a funny little bar above the restaurant certain Vegansaurs used to frequent in their salad days.
Great food and service at a very reasonable price. Beer selection at restaurant and upstairs bar are both excellent. Suggest going with a group for family style experience to try many dishes.

Delicious! Enter through the side if you don't want to go through the bar
The service is usually slow.

Always a wait for the food, but worth it. Definitely go upstairs to fiume for after dinner drinks and feel cooler than you probably are.

The veggie platter rules. It's my go-to meal each time I visit Abyssinia! Definitely try it!

Very slow service!!!!!

One of Philly’s best Ethiopian spots. Wander upstairs to their under-the-radar bar, Fiume, for Thursday night bluegrass and a weekly special.

Minimal food wait time and they even noticed I was vegetarian and gave me a platter separate from my meat-eating friend. Best-spiced Ethiopian food I've eaten!
Best with 2+ people. Get any meat dish with the veggie combo - perfect combination.

The best part about the place is that it wears the tiny whiskey bar Fiume like a hat.

Food is good so I don't mind the wait. Get the veggie combo platter! You're welcome.
Delicious and homestyle :)

Get the chicken tibs w injera or the veg platter..if u want it spicy, u really have to tell them SPICY!!! They never seem to make it hot enough, because they don't think I can handle the heat.
It better be good because we've been waiting for 1.5 hours for our food!
