Great place - Edit

The Saturday/Sunday lunch buffet was great. I travel a lot for work but I will definitely be back when I am in Kansas City again.

Great Ethiopian spot - Edit

So many vegan options and a really neat dining experience and flavor profile from the usual restaurants.

Pros: Lots of naturally vegan dishes, sample platters, cool experience

Delicious Ethiopian food in the River Market - Edit

I love going here, particularly for the lunch buffet (which is a great bargain!). The lunch buffet clearly lists all vegan items, and one of the two soups offered is usually (always?) vegan. If you can't make it for lunch, never fear, there are plenty of veg*n options!

Pros: excellent, delicious, authentic Ethiopian food, lunch buffet great value and intro to Ethiopian, inside and outside seating

Great food, friendly staff - Edit

I love Ethiopian food, so a good Ethiopian restaurant won't struggle to get a positive review from me.

The drawbacks to this place are: finding street parking on weekends and the limited seating.

The perks: staff knows/understands veganism and all of the items in the 'for vegetarians' section on the menu are vegan. Items with cheese are not included in that section.

I don't drink, but they also have a good range of beers and wines from Ethiopia, if that's your thing.

Moderate prices.

Pros: Cosy, Friendly staff, Knowledgeable on veganism

Cons: Serves meat, Limited seating
