good food but horrible service – Good food: its meat and veggie combo platters are great. If you go, you have to have a lot of patience, though! The restaurant seems to be perpetually understaffed. Every time I've gone there with a group of >2 people, I had to wait 30-40 min for my food.
I've been to this place a total of about 6 times, but my last visit definitely persuaded me to never go again. Knowing how slow they serve, I called ahead told them to please have 3 combo platters ready when we arrive. Not only was the person on the phone curt, our group waited a good 40 min for food, to the point where one person had to leave already. We were ticked off and "only" gave 10% tip, only to have the waitress start YELLING at me for being "cheap"...This restaurant obviously has some issues.
Best Ethiopian Food in W. Philly – In a neighborhood with no shortage of Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurants, this is the best. Good spiciness and much better quality ingredients (especially the meat) than other area African restaurtants.
Exotic and Oh! so Yummy – If you haven't tried Ethiopian cuisine, you're not as erudite as you think! Abyssinia serves exquisitely prepared meats and/or vegetables which will unfailingly yield a satisfying and memorable dining experience. The food is spicy but the levels can be adjusted (down to mild or up to fiery) to accommodate all tastes. The restaurant reflects the timeless hospitality of the civilization from whence it comes. Be prepared for intimate communal dining with your companions. It will be an experience from which no one will leave disappointed.
