Westword's Description

The Arada Gebeya, one of the great spice markets of Africa, is located in central Addis Ababa. And now its namesake restaurant, Arada Ethiopian Restaurant, has brought the true flavor of Ethiopian cuisine to the center of Santa Fe Drive. The menu is simple but authentic, offering a dozen-odd entrees all carefully prepared and beautifully spiced, and served with - and sometimes on - injera, a slightly sour, squishy, soft, white flat bread made from fermented teff that acts as side dish, silverware and plate all at the same time.

    We went to this place about a year ago and had the absolute worst service and food ever. The Ethiopian restaurants on Colfax are much friendlier, better priced, and much better quality than our parties experience at the Arada.

    Service sucks when it's busy. 3 people after us have been sat before

    Maybe don't go for the honey wine.

  • Untapped M. on 10/13/10

    can't go wrong w/ the cubano and chick pea salad. So good. Warning sandwich is big!

  • Erin O. on 02/11/14

    Meh. They mixed injera with the main dish as an inexpensive filler. Not very good.
