I ordered the chicken doro wet I believe it was called. It was $10 and consisted of one chicken drumstick, a half cup of dried white cheese, and about another half cup of collard greens. It was also on a platter of sponge bread which wasn't all that appetizing. The portions are WAY too small for the price paid. If I order a chicken dish at a restaurant, I expect more than a drumstick worth of meat. It tasted unique and different which I appreciate but I will never come back and order anything from the dinner menu again.

I was very disappointed during my visit to Taste of Ethiopia. You were understaffed, the service was extremely slow, you didn't even bring me a napkin, the food was just ok, the restroom was dirty, and there was no means of drying your hands in the restroom. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We didn't realize there was a stipulation for making a reservation 24 hours in advance until reading the coupon more closely. I called anyway on the afternoon of the day we were interested in going there. After some conversation, I was given an 8:00 p.m. reservation for that evening. When we got there (at 7:50), there were only two other tables with guests in the whole restaurant. Not sure what was going on there.

Service was some of the rudest I have ever experienced. We called to make a reservation like the Groupon said. They didn't take our name just said that an hour from then would be fine. We got there and were refused to be seated at first due to our "lack of reservation." After arguing for nearly five minutes was finally "allowed" to sit (there were several open tables). Service throughout the meal was rude, condensing and slow. The place cleared out while we were there (nearly empty) and another couple came in without a reservation. They were practically yelled at to a point where they were angry and stormed out. There are other good Ethiopian options in the area. Never returning.

Consider not limiting customers to one cup of tea when using a groupon. Tea is not the same as wine.
