Tonight we experienced our best takeout of 2020! This year has been a roller-coaster for so many and I imagine as much for the Abyssinia team as any. Somehow they poured their hearts onto our plates with the most incredible ensemble of seasonal, local veggies and perfectly tender, seasoned meats. I’ve travelled Ethiopia and can say that this food is AUTHENTIC! You need to cancel your dinner plans tonight and order the “Trays for Multiples - MAHIBERAWI” Sit back and wrap that sweet love in a piece of wonderful injeera! Thank you so much for our warm bellies and full hearts!! Amazing!

One of my favourite Ethiopian restaurants in Calgary. The food is delicious and aesthetically pleasing. Unlike other restaurants who try and cater the taste and seasoning to be generally accepted by most, this restaurant stays traditionally true in flavour. It's a must for anyone looking for an authentic Ethiopian food experience.

Food is phenomenal. Absolute best platter I’ve ever had. I wish they could open a restaurant in Vancouver. Will have to just come here ever time I visit Calgary. Vegan menu available. Huge portions - if you leave hungry that’s on you.

The server warned us the dishes we ordered were spicy... But, I think they must have dialed down the spiciness of our dishes (we are white) because they weren't at all spicy. The service wasn't the best (1 person for the whole place), and they were out of numerous things we tried to order (as first and second choice). There was also an extremely overpowering incense in the dinning room of the restaurant while we were eating.

This is a real gem of a restaurant and it's a wonderful cultural experience. The food is awesome, the beautiful decor (along with the round tables) makes you feel like you are a prince/princess in Ethiopia, the owner is a very kind lady, and the price is very reasonable. We were very full afterwards, especially after ordering extra (and very delicious) injera bread. :) I'm sure the meat dishes are great too but I'm always amazed at how Ethiopian food can make vegetables taste so good. Please go out and support them. We need more family-owned, delicious, unique, and reasonably priced restaurants like this. God bless them. :)
