Great Ethiopian food – We went to Arada for the first time Friday. The food was fantastic! We ordered a combination plate and an additional spicy beef dish. The presentation was wonderful, with each item in the combination dish explained as it was dished onto the platter. We've eaten at other Ethiopian restaurants, including a highly regarded one in New York City. Arada is as good as that one. Perfectly spiced, skillfully prepared. The service was attentive, the food arrived in a timely fashion, and the restaurant itself is nice. Its neighborhood is the Santa Fe Arts district. A perfect way to spend a Friday night. Go! You won't be disappointed.
good food but really slow service – I came here on a Wednesday night right after work, at the location on Santa Fe. I don't know if Santa Fe is the new location or a second location. The restaurant was essentially empty, so it was easy to get a table. We ordered some kind of sampler platter for two people. The food was delicious. Downside was that service was SLOW. And I mean SLOW. There were only two other tables seated besides ours. I think the waitress serving was also the owner and maybe even the cook. Who knows. She kept disappearing into the back and never really kept checking on us to see if we needed more drinks or anything.
Great experience – Visited Arada's new location on 7th and Santa Fe over the weekend. The food was delicious, unique and relatively reasonably priced. The service was ok - not bad, not great. My only complaint would be portion size. My boyfriend and I ordered two entrees (one each) which came with some sides, but it ended up being much less food than we anticipated and we were left wishing we'd ordered an appetizer. Food was amazingly spiced and seemed healthy... we'll be back.
Best ethiopian in Denver. Address is wrong – This is a fantastic restaurant, great food. If you haven't tried ethiopian try it here. Prices are very reasonable as well.
