I really love the Ethopian food, a great place for lunch! A wonderful richness in New York.

I love Ethiopian, and have eaten at all of the restaurants in NYC; the service is the best I've experienced, the food was excellent (both meat & veggie), and although the decor is not ornate, the restaurant is charmingly mostly windows so you can watch the streets outside (the other restaurants tend to be in darker spaces). I highly recommend!

Everything is made fresh and quite delicious. The atmosphere is not great but the value is amazing. The best Ethiopian and friendly service.

Ethiopian food is the best cusine ive ever had in my life. With that said I have to thank Meskel for making me feel that way. Meskel Ethio. Res. Is the best in nyc, their ingera is very light and soft...while the rich sauces accomdate the wonderful taste of the cusine. The Service was AMAZING. our waitress was very nice and attentive- taking the time to explain everything on the menu. Their honeywine is also a big plus. i highly reccomend this resturant to anyone who has never tried Ethiopian food- or is a fan of the cusine its self... and i also belive the people who are writing negative comments should NOT destroy a resturant's reputaion, just cause you were not a fan of the cusine in general. it is wrong and obserd. If anyplace in NYC has AMAZING Ethiopian food, and portions, along with service is MESKEL.

I have been surveying the NYC ethiopian joints over the past few years, and this place might supplant my uptown faves as the best spot in manhattan. Unlike so many Ehtiopian restuarants where the veggeis are lackluster, Meskel's veggies are on par with their delicious meat dishes, making me not guilty to drag vegetarians there!

The best food and very friendly service, the only thing is that this place only has maybe 3 or 4 tables and bare walled.

I had never had Ethiopian food before, but the food at Meskel was fantastic. Our waitress took time & explained the dishes on the menu and everything turned out great (especially the avocado salad vegetarian sampler). All and all a great experience and I'm happy to leave feedback for Meskel.
