    Awash Has History

    AWASH has been on Amsterdam for over 30-years. I've eaten at there at least once a month during the past 30-years. The staff has changed. The cooks have changed. But this is still the place to get great Ethiopian food on the Upper West Side. The Doro Wat is always worth a taste. Sometimes it’s a little sweeter, sometimes it’s a little spicier and that’s to be expected because there’s a real cook in the kitchen. Get the Veggie Combo and if you want to play with your palate, get the raw meat and ask for the sauce. It may not be the prettiest place on Amsterdam but it has always been one of my favorites.

    Not Recommended

    I have given this restaurant three tries now. After a poor experience six months ago, I decided to give it another go today. I ordered the vegetarian sampler platter--everything except 2 dishes on the vegetarian menu. Despite how simple the order, the order was completely wrong. The collard greens were good--but everything else was cold and badly seasoned. The tap water was warm. The waitress was not welcoming. When we tried to pay, we were told that the Credit Card machine was broken. No apology, no request even for cash, just a statement. We had had to wait for the bill a second time.

    Yummy patience

    The foods is terrific but this place is severley understaffed. They need more than two waiters and more help in the kitchen as we waited for over an hour for our food. I had delivery and it was prompt. I could've saved time by waiting for a delivery rather than sitting at my table waiting for the arrival of my waitress.

    Not recommended for delivery

    I love Ethiopian food an there isn't nearly enough in NYC. Unfortunately the service at awash despite it being a block and a half from my house makes it a miss. I placed an order at 7:40 pm. When my food hadn't arrived at 8:30 pm I called to check on my order. The person who answered the phone insisted the delivery man was on his way. At 9pm I called back and they said the same thing without asking what my address was. I pointed out that they had said he was on his way 1/2 hour before and that since I live 1/2 block away was a bit weird. I also let them know that if he wasnt truly on his way and if they couldn't guarantee he would be there in 5 minutes then I wanted to cancel m order. So they did. No apologies, nothing.

    The best part was the filo dough appetizer rolls filled with beef. So, so yummy!! The beef chunks in the main course were too tough. Maybe stick with chicken? Service was good until we wanted to leave. It took at least 30 minutes for us to get the check and our credit card back. It was so odd! Anyhow, we will still be going back. The food was so good.

    Gives a new meaning to "finger food"

    Lentils & lamb are my favorite but everything is so good! Nice end to the meal is the Ethiopia coffee. You couldn't ask for a friendlier staff.

    Food that warms the soul

    Delicious, perfect portions, unlimited spongy bread. The waitresses continuously filled our water glasses (much appreciated considering the spicy factor of the food). Great!
