my parents lived in ethiopia and every city i live in i make it a point to become the expert on good ethiopian. this meskerem is fantastic. the food is ever so slightly inconsistent, however it's always good. i always bring ethiopian food "virgins" there and not ONCE have i received a bad response. i also had a first date there three months ago and we are still going strong, so it is a fine place for a date! feed each other!! who needs frills when the food is so good?!

This was the first time I had Ethiopian food and I will never have it again. It was not worth a whole $12.95 the 2 small pieces of chicken and hard boiled egg. The food tasted funky, but granted it may not be my taste. The service wasn't that great, my friend ordered a soda and had to ask different people several times just to get it! I'm glad I went for the experience but nothing else.

The food is good and the combo platters are more than filling. Go with friends and share. Be warned though - the injera (bread you use to scoop the food up) sits in your stomache like a ball of lead after you eat so go easy on it. This is not the place for a romantic date as there is zero atmosphere and even less space, but a fun and different spot to hit witha group of friends when you want to try something new. Try the vegetarian plate - it's the best.

after reading some good reviews, I decided to give it a try. But would never go back again. Very disappointing with the portion size at such a high price. Food could've been tastier. Definitely not worth it. Go for the less pricey lunch instead if one really wants to try.

The food here is yummy and, unlike many places in Manhattan, not overpriced. The seating is a tight squeeze. Don't go with a large group. And if it's winter, you don't want to sit by the door. The service is friendly, if maybe a little harried.
