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.

Getting a reservation is not easy, and do not go if you are in a hurry. Try the sample platter for great variety. The staff was wonderful.

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.
