Our food was not very warm and some of the portions were so small, it was just a taste. Without the coupon, I would have felt "extremely" overcharged. Atmosphere is very cold and uninviting. We were not offered our coffee. If you are selling canned beverages you could offer a few more choices. Server was very professional and sweet. Liked the music, but it was WAY too loud.

The food was good. The ambiance is okay, but part of the restaurant seems under construction, so the visuals aren't top notch. A pleasant enough surprise in a tarnished package.

Neither the food nor the atmosphere was very nice. The staff was lovely but the food left a lot to be desired.

The food was tasty but I think if they're going to have a graduation party, they should close the restaurant while it is going on.

From Our Editors

Eating without a knife and fork is frowned upon in many restaurants, but not Africana Cafe. Here, eating with your hands is one of the many elements that create an authentic Ethiopian dining experience. The main element is the cuisine, which features meat- and vegetable-centered plates such as cubed beef mixed with housemade awaze sauce, lamb fried with rosemary and jalapeño peppers, and sliced tomato and green pepper tossed in special african spices.

To complement these Ethiopian edibles, bartenders offer pours of imported Ethiopian beer and housemade honey wine. Customers in need of caffeine can order cups of joe served during a traditional coffee ceremony, a far more elegant proceeding than a barista performing an interpretative dance around a french press.
