After a 20 plus mile journey to Addis Adeba in Evanston, IL, it was a total waste of a trip. Hands down, this was the worst Ethiopian meal we have ever experienced.
We were the only ones there on a late Saturday afternoon.
We felt the food was edible but seriously lacked flavor. To be honest, we were leary from the beginning considering there were no Ethiopian people working at the restaurant.
Unfortunately, our experience was very disappointing. We must admit that our point of comparison is the wonderful Ethiopian Diamond and Ethiopian Diamond II, but this food was very dry, the flavors felt canned, the selections weren’t very interesting, and the portions were smaller than we are typically used to getting. Service was friendly enough, but we won’t be back.
