The food was great! We had the fried fish and appetizers and was fresh and tasty. The portion was very generous and service was wonderful. We had a great experience. The waitress recommended Ethiopian beer and we loved it! Thank you!

With or without a coupon, Rosalind's is a good deal. Food was good and staff was friendly. A treat and good experience for one of our party who had just returned from a year in Ethiopia. Take out does not work when wrapped in the spongy bread. Overall a special experience.

Awaze Tibs are yummy. It's very beautiful and Tuesday night a band was just jamming lightly providing amazing ambience.

Use your hands when eating - it's normal. But wash them thoroughly first.

Service was friendly. You are supposed to make a reservation if you use a groupon, but the server let it slide. The food was just ok. There are definitely better tibbs on this street. Good thing I had a groupon! Recommend veggie dishes over meat.

The food was great. We ordered the trio meat platter, as well as the vegetarian platter. It was delicious, and great to try a little of everything.

We had a great experience, the food was good, and our server very kind and attentive. Her recommendations were wonderful, she even brought us a few extra small servings of vegetable dishes we weren't expecting.

From Our Editors

The towering neon sign above Rosalind's Ethiopian Cuisine points down toward the eatery's entrance, where live Ethiopian music and aromas of Ethiopian, Ghanaian, and Nigerian cuisines escape into the air. Though bands gather only on the weekends, the kitchen staff serve their menu of steamed vegetable, lamb, chicken, beef, and seafood dishes daily until 2 a.m. Their house specialty is the special tibs entree, showcasing spicy beef served atop charcoals in a traditional Ethiopian pot. Servers encourage diners to eat their dishes by hand, resulting in fingers speckled with nutmeg and games of Paper, Rock, Scissors with plantains.

Thatched roofs hover above the eatery's dining areas, which include booths, tables, and traditional Ethiopian mesobs—woven tabletops with woven lids that are surrounded by stools to facilitate easy communal eating. African decor and saturated yellows and reds permeate the entire space and enclose the full bar, and a scattering of TVs helps diners stay up-to-date with local sports even as their taste buds trot the globe.
