This restaurant is truly amazing! The food is always cooked fresh and upon order. We always order the family style for 4 or more people. They have Beef, Pork, Lamp & Seafood platters Along with Vegetable dishes. Vegan plates are available too. The food is great! You can order mild, to medium to very spicy, your choice. They have Orange Blossom Tea & Rose Infused Lemonade which is refreshing & wonderful along with soda's & hot tea. The Baklava for desert is to die for. **They are only taking dinner reservations from 5pm right now so please call ahead for availability** Enjoy!!

Uchenna was a wonderful experience. The owner/waitress is a very kind and hospitable person, providing excellent service. This organic Ethiopian food is home-cooked and marvelously flavorful. It is a cozy spot with a minimum of nicely spaced tables, surrounded by intriguing Ethiopian artwork. (Be sure to make a reservation ahead of time.)
