  • Best with 2+ people. Get any meat dish with the veggie combo - perfect combination.
  • Food is good so I don't mind the wait. Get the veggie combo platter! You're welcome.
  • 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
  • Very nice place to enjoy traditional Ethiopian food.
  • The chair cushions are worn through, and the service is leisurely, but it all adds to the comfortable charm at Abyssinia, where locals know they can find some of the best Ethiopian food in Philly.
  • Love the veggie combo!
  • Great vegetarian options! Authentic Ethiopian food!
  • The food is fantastic and jazz at the bar was really enjoyable.
  • There's usually a special fish of the day so don't forget to ask. The food is delicious!
  • 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!
