Certainly don't go without a discount. It would be very overpriced otherwise. The food was mediocre and the atmosphere was bare bones and bland. Maybe if the place was lively, it would be one thing, but it was pretty deserted.

It was my first time trying Ethiopian food. The service was excellent and food was very delicious. Will be returning for more.

4 of us, no two with the same food preferences, all had a wonderful time. No one left hungry!

The Awash is a very nice restaurant, I liked the place overall, the food and the service as well. Maybe I would suggest to add another person to help waiting because sometimes the only two staff members get a little overwhelmed with orders and costumers have to wait a long time to be helped. So I would definitely recommend Awash Ethiopian Restaurant to my friends.

From Our Editors

Having named their restaurant for a major Ethiopian river, the owners of Awash Ethiopian Restaurant proudly uphold the country's traditions, both culinary and cultural. At all three locations, guests scoop up authentic recipes—such as tartar-style steak kitfo—using spongy injera, a sourdough-like bread known for tasting far better than silverware. Vegetarian plates such as gomen (collard greens) and meaty lamb or chicken stews both wash down easy with sips of imported beer or tej, an Ethiopian honey wine.

Intricate metal lanterns illuminate stately Ethiopian portraits at Awash’s flagship Upper West Side location, and the Zagat-rated East Village location goes for a more casual feel with paper lanterns, colorful abstract paintings, and intimate sidewalk seating.
