The owner greeted me cheerfully, explained the menu, and made suggestions. He gets an A+ - and so does the food. The restaurant was attractive and clean.

Food was excellent. Convenient distance to the University of Memphis. Appetizers were a good bargain and delicious. Check hours. Hours of the restaurant are different from other restaurants.

This is what I imagine Ethiopian comfort food would be like. Everything I ordered was wonderful, but if you're not used to eating goat, the rustic cuts with connective tissue, fat, and bone might be off-putting.

not having eaten etheopian food before, we asked the proprietor for suggestions. he was helpful and very gracious. however, being vegetarian that meant eliminating nearly all of menu items which may have revealed the true etheopian cuisine.

From Our Editors

At Derae Restaurant, chefs craft an array of Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Ethiopian breakfast and dinner dishes that the managing editor of the Memphis Flyer called “excellent all the way around.” Start the morning off with a traditional fava bean stew called fuul, or opt for fatira, a pita bread-like wrap stuffed with vegetables or meat and baked in a brick oven until it politely tells the chef it’s done. Dinner entrees include traditionally prepared chicken and rice, spaghetti with hanid (a traditionally prepared meat), and tibs, an Ethiopian dish of sautéed meat and vegetables.
