Foursquare Tips

  • Food is good so I don't mind the wait. Get the veggie combo platter! You're welcome.
  • Best with 2+ people. Get any meat dish with the veggie combo - perfect combination.
  • The best part about the place is that it wears the tiny whiskey bar Fiume like a hat.
  • Best Ethiopian food in the city but the service can be very slow wheb it's crowded so go when you're not in a rush.
  • get home cuisine :D
  • Great for buying beer to go
  • Great place for sharing, rather than getting individual entres. The upstairs bar is super cozy.
  • Vegetarians and meat eaters alike will enjoy the dishes served here. A friendly atmosphere and a full menu of vegetable, chicken, beef and lamb dishes, plus an eclectic selection of beer.
  • Philly is a great place for Ethiopian and Abyssinia has many vegan options. Plus there's a funny little bar above the restaurant certain Vegansaurs used to frequent in their salad days.
  • Great food and service at a very reasonable price. Beer selection at restaurant and upstairs bar are both excellent. Suggest going with a group for family style experience to try many dishes.
  • Delicious! Enter through the side if you don't want to go through the bar
  • The service is usually slow.
  • Always a wait for the food, but worth it. Definitely go upstairs to fiume for after dinner drinks and feel cooler than you probably are.
  • The veggie platter rules. It's my go-to meal each time I visit Abyssinia! Definitely try it!
  • Very slow service!!!!!
  • One of Phillys best Ethiopian spots. Wander upstairs to their under-the-radar bar, Fiume, for Thursday night bluegrass and a weekly special.
  • Minimal food wait time and they even noticed I was vegetarian and gave me a platter separate from my meat-eating friend. Best-spiced Ethiopian food I've eaten!
  • Delicious and homestyle :)
  • Get the chicken tibs w injera or the veg platter..if u want it spicy, u really have to tell them SPICY!!! They never seem to make it hot enough, because they don't think I can handle the heat.
  • It better be good because we've been waiting for 1.5 hours for our food!
