Reviews for Asmara Restaurant

We walked in because the line for another restaurant was too long, and we're so glad we did. Fresh, flavorful Ethiopian food awaited us, served quickly and with a smile. Zilzil tibs and doro tibs were standout dishes. We recommend eating in a group family style. We loved our meal here and can't wait to come back with more friends!

This was a fun experience! I have to admit I am not that familiar with Ethiopian food, but we wanted to try something different. The staff were super friendly and walked us through the menu and helped us make our selections. The food was delicious and I highly recommend the Ethiopian iced tea, which was spiced with cardamom and ginger. We will definitely be back!

This is one of my favorite Ethiopian restaurants in Oakland (and I have tried many)! I always order the veggie combo. It is filling and comes with plenty of enjera. The flavor of all of the different lentil dishes is delicious and unique and the salad is always fresh. The platter also happens to be vegan, which is awesome! They also have a tasty honey wine, and the Ethiopian tea is delicious. Service is always great as well, and the ambience of the restaurant is cute. For full review
