Grand Opening of Famous Ethiopian Restaurant under new management

This is the restaurant we went to on May 23rd.  The restaurant was just taken over by new management and they are having a grand opening with a buffet on June 1st.  There is not going to be any limit of people here and while this is a meetup and i will try to get some nametags or something to let others in the group know each other this is more a get together and have some great food.


The food was delicious when we went and all that went had a great time and I think they all are going to come back for this grand opening as well.  So hopefully we can get a big group together for this event.

    Being told kids weren't typically welcome to these Meetups made my son and I uncomfortable, but we still enjoyed the food, and some of the ladies in the group tried to make us feel welcome. The staff was attentive and courteous. I prefer food to be served hotter, but think it will be in the future when not served buffet style.

    The food was very good. It would have been nice if the food had been hot was my only negative thing to say but was still tssty luke warm.

    Had a great time meeting some new people and seeing others from past meetups. The buffet was very extensive and very delicious. Seemed like everyone had a great time.

    It's been a long time ago, but I had a great Ethiopian restaurant experience in the Haight Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco.

    I will be bringing my 9 year old son. I hope that's ok. Introducing him to different cultures through food is so much fun!

    I don't have a clue about this type of food. Is it spicy? Any idea as to what type of spices are used? IS this anything like the food in Indian restaurants? What is it similar to? I like some idea on the food before I go to a restaurant so I know if they have anything I am able to eat. What is their price for the buffet in case I get adventurous?

      $indi, Ethiopian food is hard to compare to anything else. It's generally not spicy, just savory--think thick stews--of meat or vegetables, served on (and accompanied by more) injeera. Injeera is something like a huge crepe, with a slightly sour taste, a nice contrast with the stews. You tear off a small piece of injeera and use it to pinch some stew for a tidy mouthful. It's really great if you join with a few others to try several items in a communal meal (splitting the cost). No strange ingredients, won't blow off the roof of your mouth, just delicious. Hope you give it a try this time! The buffet is a great idea, as we can individually try lots of items. I will definitely make time for this one!

    Hey, the name of this group is Wild Dining. You have to be ready to take chances when you attend this group's events. You can't be "picky" when you eat at "Wild Dining" restaurants. If the food in "normal" it wouldn't be called Wild Dining. Live it up and take a chance!
