I frequently eat Ethiopian food but must say my experience tonight was not much different than most at Awash uptown. The Injera was really think and not cooked all the way through. The sides miser was mushy with barely any flavor aside from the uncooked berberay while the collard greens and cabbage was bland. Service: there were two ladies one was too busy to even help or look my way but they other lady was trying and asking how she could help/what she should do. Table was unstable and wabbeled until we places a napkin under one leg. Finally, I must say the bathroom wasn't clean.

First, if the Ethiopian food experience is not for you feel free to say so, but it isn't fair to give a bad review because you didn't enjoy out of the ordinary dining. You can eat with your hands but you don't have to. The eating at the basket is an option but plenty of tables with silverware are available. Everything we ordered was great. The service was not overly attentive but certainly was there when we needed them and everyone was very friendly. If you are expecting eat until you're sick portions then you will be disappointed, but three of us had the 3 person combo and one additional entree and we couldn't finish it all. That and three drinks came to just over $80. It was a good value, the food was great, we had fun and we will be back.

I would definitely recommend this ethiopian restaurant - the food was excellentT and probably the best ethiopian I've ever had. Definitely worth the visit. We plan on returning again really soon. (Also try the ethiopian beers - they're delicious!)

I eat here about twice a month. I always bring people with me and we always leave stuffed and over-joyed! I highly recommend sitting at one of the basket tables and getting the full experience. Top recommendation!

I eat here at least 3 times a week. Always good! Get the 1 person combo and choose awash tibs & and awash chicken for meats then choose for vegies patakilt alichia, gomen, and key sir alichia! So good!

Being on hold for ten minutes before ordering should have been my first sign that maybe this wasn't going to be speedy delivery. I live six blocks away and it took an hour to get the food delivered, I should have just walked over and picked up. The food was icy cold which means in retrospect means I shouldn't have ordered at all.

After another restaurant was unable to honor my large reservation, we went to Awash -- 18 people -- and they not only were able to seat us right away, but we got a room to ourselves and one big table. The service was fast, the food was delicious and filling, and the honey wine excellent. They (and my fast-thinking friend) saved my birthday. I had previously thought their portions too small, but they were generous this visit. And the sambusas are wonderful and flaky. The honey wine was a particular treat.
