Foursquare Tips

  • get the homemade honey wine. a very unique and subtle flavor.
  • Get the sampker platter for 2
  • Share the six-dish feast Sega Bebaynetu highlighting all of the best home-cooked goodness.To complement the 27-spice blends, order a glass of the smooth and mild house-made honey wine.
  • Awesome homemade honey wine
  • Ethiopian food is awesome! Sit traditional style and dig into some combo platters. Enjoy eating with your hands and some house honey wine!
  • Great food. Great experience. Great service. We had all veggie dishes. The lentils one was a bit too spicy for us.
  • Try the honey wine! Great food
  • Some of the best Ethiopian/Eritrean cuisine I've found in the US. Kitfo is amazing: delicately spiced and silky texture. The Salata Tibtib is great, and the lentils as well. Highly recommended!
  • Nice inchiras, we took the non-veg platter and just loved it
  • Fantastic food. Traditional seating is great!
  • Ethiopian honey wine is just as good as it sounds.
  • Excellent menu, wonderful food, good value. I had the Gored Gored, raw beef tenderloin w/ spicy sauce. The injeria, both styles, are excellent.
  • Great food, very authentic. But it is overpriced for the quality
  • So delicious! Very glad that I tried new food :) will definitely come back again!!
  • Amazing Ethiopian cuisine!
  • Sit traditional and if you like spicy food, try the #10 ground lean beef. Owner cooks everything herself with ingredients imported directly from Ethiopian. Best of the Boston area!
  • Asmara was Boston's first Ethiopian restaurant. For a unique experience, try the zihla: cubes of raw tenderloin beef tips lightly fermented in pepper paste and served with spiced butter.
  • Spinach and ricotta appetizer! Spicy and sublime!
  • Fabulous Ethiopian/Eritrean Restaurant. Vegan-friendly, even.
  • Try the Sega Bebaynetu and the honey wine!
