Reviews for Asmara Restaurant

The restaurant was very welcoming! Food was what I was craving (it tastes similar to my mothers home cooked food), waiters were extra friendly & the place was clean. They earned my business because of this so I definitely recommend!

I’ve tried other Eritrean and Ethiopian restaurants in the area but Asmara by far is the best one of all. I’ve eaten here many times and during Covid-19 pandemic closure, take away home. We as family enjoy this food so much and keep coming back regularly.Great food, environment, owner and staff is friendly and quality is always consistent. I’d recommend it for sure if you want to try something different and healthy. Don’t forget to try the home made honey wine with full review

We had not had Eritrean/Ethiopian food for quite a few years - this brought back some great memories. The food was very flavoursome, and so filling! It’s great to sit around a share plate and partake! Our toddler loved the lamb! Fresh and well-prepared food. Reasonable prices. A lovely little restaurant that is worth a visit.
