    Budget friendly insanely delicious meals!

    I went to Abyssinia on a day I was exploring the neighborhood. My boyfriend and I had heard great reviews from a random girl we met at Capogiro, and from reading the Yelp and Menu-pages reviews. We're adventuruous eaters to begin with, and neither of us h

    best kitfo ever!

    If you are a fan of kitfo like me this is your place. The meat is fresh and flavorful and melts in your mouth. By FAR this is the best outfit I have ever had.

    “A restaurant worth trying”

    Extremely tasty food. Very good ambiance. The Doro wot Chicken and Yebeg Alicha Wot served with Injera were awesome.

    Food not bad, service weird...

    The food is good & we were the only customers in the place for a while. The bottle of beer that - I am told - is normally supposed to be served with an accompanying glass and a slice of orange came only in a bottle. The side salad, called Ye'Abbysinia Sal

    Longstanding neighborhood favorite

    I have been to Abysynnia many, many times. I lived a block away. The food is consistently great! Service has it's moments, but well worth the wait. I could just eat the injera for a meal! It's that good. I would highly recommend this place for anyon

    Best Ethiopian Food in Philly

    Sure the service could be a little faster some days, but the staff is always friendly, the prices are completely reasonable, and the food is always amazingly delicious and spicy. And you can always go to the lo-fi hipster bar upstairs for a drink afterwa

    Be prepared to wait forever

    I have been here a few times now. My husband loves it so I figured I'd give it more than just a try but it is at best disappointing. This is how a typical evening there goes. The waitress (you see, there is just one for the whole restaurant) is not what
