Underwhelming - Edit

I want to like this place because I love Ethiopian food and it offers an option to the usual Asheville vegan fare. But I've tried it 3xs now. The injera has an off taste and the spices on the Misr Wat (red lentils) are heavy. At least this last time, the lentils and potatoes were fully cooked. Plus it's overpriced but likely because of their downtown location.

Pros: Different option the the usual AVL vegan fare.

Amazing!!! - Edit

The app wouldn't let me post 5 stars, but this restaurant is worth 5 stars. I got the vegetarian messob meal and it was truly delicious! The owner of the restaurant is very sweet and named the restaurant after his mother. Go here to eat!!!

good for a mixed group - Edit

We had some veg and some meat eaters in our group and this was a good option to try something cultural. The food was pretty good but lacked in flavor. Nice atmosphere, great location.

Family-Owned, and Vegan-Friendly! - Edit

Addissae is Asheville's long awaited first Ethiopian restaurant. And, it is as vegan-friendly as any Ethiopian restaurant I've ever set been in! Their "Vegetarian Messob Plate" is entirely vegan, and their menu also features a "Tempeh Tibbs." In my experience the staff is entirely aware of the particularities of a vegan diet, and the owners are as well.

Addissae has been a nice addition to the plethora of vegan-friendly restaurants in Asheville, and I hope they are around for many years to come.

Pros: Vegan-friendly and -aware, "Tempeh Tibbs" on their menu, Family-owned with a likable wait staff

Cons: Location/parking
