Serves meat, vegan options available. This family owned restaurant's menu includes many vegetarian/vegan selections. Almost all of the appetizers (salads, sambusa pastries) are vegan-friendly, and for entrees there is a separate vegetarian section of the menu. Their injeera bread is made with Bob's Red Mill teff flour. Open Mon-Sat 5:00pm-10:00pm. Open Mon-Sat 5pm.

Delicious - Edit

Never had Ethiopian food but amazing flavor! I had the "vegan sampler" if you will. All veg, fun to eat and the staff was incredibly friendly.

Owner explained how to eat the food and told me that their food is always freshly peeped that morning. The proof was in the (non dairy) pudding ;) . Do yourself a favor and try it for yourself!

Good to see veg selections, but...... - Edit

Looking for an elegant dining experience? This ain't it. The food isn't bad-- but I can't go so far as to call it good, either-- so I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and say "fair". We actually found the things we got to be uniformly plain, and although the vegan options were certainly good to find in such a vegan-unfriendly city as Hartford, my wife & I thought that the dishes lacked imagination. Not bad, mind you, but we'll definitely try a different place (maybe Fire & Spice) the next time we're in town. (And whatever you do, don't order the Ethopian wine.)

Pros: Prepared fresh, Vegan options, Fast service

Cons: Food just "OK", No atmosphere

Ethiopian in CT! - Edit

Abyssinian is the cure to the CT restaurant scene's lack of Ethiopian restaurants. The food is fresh, and gently spiced in a way that will appeal to fans of spicy and mild foods alike. As is traditionally done in Ethiopia, food is eaten by scooping it up using a crepe-like flatbread called injeera. Abyssinian's injeera is homemade daily. You are given plenty of it to start, but the owner is happy to give more (at no extra charge) if you ask!

Pros: Fresh, Healthy Food, Kind staff, Ethnic Experience

Cons: Parking a bit difficult
