my favorite gem in the city. let me tell you, i travel across lands to indulge in this savory goodness. as an ethiopian, i can say that zoma is the most authentic ethiopian cuisine in the city. additionally, the atmosphere is sublime. the decor is flawlessly and refreshingly uted. however, the main draw of zoma is absolutely the FOOD. fresh, delectable, and highly pleasing. and not to mention, great VALUE.

I love Zoma. I've been to Zoma many many times and I keep going back. The food is, by far, the best Ethiopian I've had in NYC. Favorite dishes are fassolia, misir wet, doro tibs, zoma tibs, shiro wet. Its also the nicest atmosphere you'll find for an Ethiopian restaurant. Harlem's on the rise!

My friend wanted to try ehtiopian in the city for ied mubarrak so I did a menupages search and found Zoma. The food is good I recommend the combo meal for parties with more than one person. The service is a little slow so don't go there starving but it is a nice, quiet place to dine. And it's open sort of late. Bon Appetit

Loved the nuance of spices in the various foods. Likewise, the experience of communal sharing of it was enjoyable. I would, however, recommend not going too late at night, as the street life can be a little bit edgy.

Friends and I went to Zoma for the first time last month and it was great. Maybe it was b/c it was a weeknight, but we did not have the service issues some posters experienced. Service was gracious and prompt, but the best thing was the food. I was really surprised at how much I liked the injera since I've had it before in other places and did not enjoy it as much. At Zoma, the injera is fine. I had the tibs wett, collard greens, misir wett and the azifa salad and loved the intricacies of the spices. Hearty portions. Didn't get to try the honey mead this time but definitely will when we go back soon!

Comfortable atmosphere, yummy food, friendly service. A real neighborhood feel. We plan to go back again. Don't miss out on the Ethiopian honey wine.

What a lovely place to eat! Food is delicious and the staff are attentive and very, very pleasant. I have been here a half dozen times so far, and I just placed an order for pick-up, which is much faster...However, I understand the time it takes on site, as it is crowded in the evenings. Amazing decor. Due to its openness, it can get noisy, but think of it as the hum of a Friday night - uptown style. Beautiful people, beautiful food. Try the honey wine/mead - best match with this food - better than a semi-dry Reisling by far! One last comment goes out to a recent reviewer named 'ethiopia' - perhaps this is not the forum in which patrons rip other a new a-hole. Relax dude - how's about gently informing the reviewer who was disappointed that the injera was tasteless and cold - there's a good chance this person, at the time, did not understand the intricacies of this gorgeous food. However, it is not a license for you to be rude. Perhaps you were having a bad day, but I am certain your mother taught you better manners and how to express your distaste with eloquence. Or maybe she didn't - either way - grow up! Bottom line - go to Zoma, as you will not be disappointed. Tip - try to arrive around 6 for a table and a quieter dinner. You will not be disappointed.
