Reviews for Shewhat

Wow! Covid sucks. This was the hi-light. My mom wanted Eritrean food for her 73rd birthday. We didn't want a quarantine take out, so I was looking for a restaurant with some outdoor space. We sat at a cute table in front of the restaurant. Every service was SPOTLESS. The chef / owner is lovely, and talented. We looked over the menu and selected the meat combo, the veggie combo and a chickpea stew. SO AMAZING!!! Every bite! The injera was light and fluffy. My fussy six year full review
We drove over 50 miles to seek this place out. In our 15+ years of eating Eritrean/Ethiopian, we have tried most of the restaurants in Oakland/Berkeley. Shewhat is now a fave for the dishes offered. The menu is limited, but very filling. We ordered the vegetable combo and meat combo and were not disappointed. All the dishes had their own distinct flavor. The lentils had flavor AND texture, something that usually is just mushy in our experience. The spinach and the potato/carrot/ full review

The food is to die for. Not only do they have the most affordable Veggie Platter in the area, but its the tastiest one ive ever had. And ive had Etheopian food from Socal all the way down to florida. I actually like the injera alot even though its not as gooey and super sour as many ive had. Its actually fluffy and light.The Greens with Avocados and injera alone are enough to make me laugh after each bite.
