The sampler platter for two was awesome! You get to try a good serving of 6-7 different dishes. There was more than enough for the two of us. The owner is a very friendly, helpful man. I am definitely going to go back, the lamb was my favorite!

It's a small place. One guy running the entire show. He did not know how Groupon works. But the food was good

Ask for instructions how to eat the food and know that it's SO worth it! Super flavorful and seasoned amazingly. Very friendly owner too!

The chef's platter for two through Groupon was barely enough food for two adults. It had maybe 4 ounces of meat. Taste was good, nothing great.

Not sure our groupon was any savings from regular menu, it was a bit unclear, but with or without coupon, price was fair for amount of food and great tastes, our 3 kids loved it! The cook made a few options for us, some spice, some without, was a nice dinner.

From Our Editors

Named one of 60 Restaurants Worth the Trip by Midwest Living magazine, GoJo Ethiopian Cuisine introduces guests to the traditional, community-focused dining style of Ethiopia. Using injera, a soft sourdough flatbread, diners scoop up bites of robustly flavored stew, or watt, from a bed of the same flatbread. Tibs watt, a dish made of sautéed tender beef and spices, and doro watt, a spiced chicken stew, satisfy carnivores, and lentils, collard greens, and green beans take the lead in the vegetarian dishes. The lamb sampler, GoJo's No. 1 seller, consists of well-spiced lamb and smaller sides of spiced beans and other vegetarian dishes.
