Aster's Ethiopian Restaurant

Aster Kassaye’s family has always naturally flocked to the kitchen, whether it was in their Ethiopian restaurant in the early '90s or at home today, where they prepare precooked meals to sell at farmers' markets. After a few years of itinerant cooking, Aster laid claim to what is now Aster’s Ethiopian Restaurant. Her dinner menu items—which an Austin Chronicle reporter "tried the bulk of" and proclaimed were "all delicious"—include cubes of lamb stewed in ginger, cumin, and chili, as well as vegetarian meals such as gomen, a dish of Ethiopian-style collards cooked with garlic and spices. Diners can fill their bellies and their ventriloquist dummy’s mouth at an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., savoring the spices that earned the restaurant a spot on Texas Monthly's list of the Top 10 Places to Eat in Central Austin in 2010.

Customer Reviews

spicy food is excellent

It was awesome. Don't be scared off by the close proximity to I35 or the exterior. Inside, the service is sweet and fun and the food is delish!

Aster's is fantastic. It's small, always friendly, excellent place to take a smart, beautiful date (or friends visiting from out of town, or parents, whomever ...). Some friends took me, and I've now introduced probably 15 or 20 people to the place. Portions generous; for two people, or dining alone, I recommend the vegetable sampler, because it gets you a lot of flavors at once. Eating at Asters helped me decided to live on the east side. If you like caffeine, their coffee is dangerously smooth. Always glad to dine there! (Lunch buffet is one of the best deals in Austin, too.)
