  • Try the lunch buffet! It's a great experience for first time eaters :)
  • Aster's has honey wine (tej) now! It's not on the menu, but if you ask for some, you will be very happy.
  • The lunch buffet is wonderful; everything is freshly made. The lamb stew tender, eggplant, lentils, potatoes all flavorful. But the Doro Wat is ridiculous good!!!!!!.... The meat falls off the bone!
  • It's not a fancy restaurant but the people are great and the food is unique and delicious. You'll find the beef & chicken cooked in delicious spices. Their Premium Lager was very good too.
  • in town for reggae fest and found this I-thiopian Buffet on our way to the show. Perfect way to start this day! Happy earth day!
  • Try the Doro Wott. So so delicious. And the gluten free Injera I fantastic as well.
  • Service is great. Food is fresh and amazing.
  • Great place for vegans too! Try the collard greens, lentils and potatoes.
  • I've been coming to Aster's for years and I highly recommend it to everyone. Delicious food and great customer service!
  • Get the chicken as the main - and spicy lentils, cabbage, and potato sides. Your welcome.
  • One of my places to get what I call "comfort food" in Austin, and super healthy and yummy. Eggplant, lentils, awesome doro wott, yum.
  • Get the Atakelt Beyaynetu. It's a sampler of all their vegetable dishes. Amazing stuff.
  • Best place to go on Friday night. No wait, amazing food.
  • Authentic and reasonably priced.
  • Everything :)
  • Its a small quiet place, you could easily miss it so look out for the sign board. Good value, good food. Had the doro wott, portions are large. Somewhat similar to Indian food actually - I loved it.
  • Everything is great!
  • They have big portions. Everything is delicious, can't go wrong!
  • Told by the owner they wouldn't accept a groupon-like gift certificate. Rude and unreasonable. BEWARE.
  • All the food here is delicious! Anything with berbere spice is amazingly spicy!
