  •  Lacking in atmosphere but not in taste. NOT taste in decor but of the food. I run out of words to describe how unusually delicious the food is here. Get over the fact it is different and just GO!

  •  What's really good at Cafe Lalibela? The wat, of course — traditional Ethiopian stew — lamb, beef, fish, vegetarian, and so on served with tons of spongy, flat injera bread.

  •  Spicy lentils and injera are the best. Lunch specials are cheap and filling too.

  •  The lalibela exclusive is the best dish to order when coming here. Equal amounts of vegetarian and meat stews are represented here. Get a yakimim shai (black tea with cinnamon and cloves to complete!

  •  Been going here for 10 years and its always delicious. My favorites are the lentils (red or yellow), collard greens, and the spicy chicken.

    55555 by Jamison W.


  •  Place was good. Very interesting. I used the injari instead of the fork. I also ate holes out of it then put it on my face like silence of the lambs. Haha!

  •  Try the Lalibela's Exclusive sampler. Awesome.
