Easily some of the best Ethiopian food I’ve ever had. The combination of friendly service, amazing food, and relaxed atmosphere made it impossible to not have a great time. My wife and I shared the Meat Combination platter and absolutely loved it.

Shalla Ethiopian Restaurant offers good service, but the atmosphere falls short unless you’re in a group or sitting outside. The attentive staff is friendly and knowledgeable, ensuring a pleasant dining experience. However, the interior lacks ambiance and fails to capture the essence of Ethiopian culture. It feels underwhelming for smaller groups, but outdoor seating provides a more enjoyable setting, especially in favorable weather. Despite the lackluster indoor atmosphere, the exceptional service and the option to dine outside with a group make Shalla Ethiopian Restaurant worth considering. Cozy Ethiopian dining or larger gatherings are ideal for a satisfying experience.

Great food, wonderful atmosphere, and impressive Ethiopian hospitality. Great professionalism from the owner to the serving crew. Usually, it is not easy to impress me. I am one of those who strongly believe that my hard earned deserves respect despite who owns the business. This principle applies to all, including friends and family members because I know how I earned it! Hope Shalla will keep up the GOOD WORK!

Ordered the 2 for 1 Geba Weta via Uber Eats. This is advertised as beef tenderloin on their website, but my experience was more in line with stew meat. Tons of gristle to the point of it being impossible to chew.

Absolutely rude service from the waitress (Selam) with extreme “why are you here” attitude. She was not welcoming to ask any question about the menu. The response she had was for us to read the menu and not to bother her. The owner seemed to take our feedback after we spoke to him

DO not order from this restaurant. we order food and it came so oily . After ordering 5 dishes . The mangers are horrible with customer service. They did not offer anything to fix the problems. Do not waste your time and money. They need to be trained the entire stuff is horrible and rude. HORRIBLE EXPERIANCE AND STUFF. I WOULD NOT SPEND ANYTHINGIN THIS PLACE. AFTER, SPENDING ALMOST 165.00$ THEY CAN TAKE THIS AS A GIFT.

I visited this restaurant with a friend. The atmosphere was really chill and towards the end of our dinner the live music had started. There was a gentlemen who might have been the manager or owner came over and had asked our we were enjoying our time. That was really sweet. This was probably my second or third time having Ethiopian food and it was delicious! I had the zelzel and asked for the meat to be well done.

The worst costumer service I have ever experienced. I don’t know where they bring this servers from but they lack respect and mannerisms. Maybe training them before putting them out on the floor would help. For any foreigner I recommend not going to this spot.

When you’re surrounded by ethiopian restaurants the one to choose is the one packed with Ethiopians.
