Accurate Reviews

I was staying in Atlanta for one night and went here based on the reviews and I can say verifiably that they are correct. The food is Awesome! However, it’s a lot of food (veg platter) so you can’t order everything that being recommended. Two Sambusas and the VP and I needed a to go box. Highly recommend this place. #Veganuary

Pros: Awesome Food, Friendly host and waiter, Reasonable prices

Cons: Parking is tight , Small dinning area, Nothing

Fresh, Colorful, Filling

Order the Veggie Platter, Shiro Wot and Sambusas! The veggie platter has 6-ish different selections; the shiro wot is spicy; and the sambusas are fried! Extra injira if you want, but the veggie platter and shiro wot come with plenty.

Pros: Spices, Variety of options in the Veggie Platter, General deliciousness

Cons: Would love if there was a lentil soup!

Love the food and the service!

I absolutely love the food at Embiltas. We’ve been going here for almost 8 years after being introduced to the place by a friend. Rahel (the owner and cook) is extremely friendly and welcoming! She always remembers our vegan preferences, and we are never disappointed with the food. I recommend it 100%!

Pros: Yummy food! , Great service!

Cons: Food takes a little time once you order. , Place doesn’t look as clean sometimes.

Excellent place!

I would love to give 5 stars but the app won’t allow me to do so because the restaurant is not fully vegan. Rahel and Tutu treat you like you are coming to their home. Very small and intimate - about 9 tables. Very authentic and many Ethiopians eat there. We are vegan and always order the veg platter and shirowat. Delicious! Very satisfying. Great coffee. No alcohol served but you can bring your own wine and they will graciously provide everything you need.

Pros: Very inexpensive, Great place for when you have carnivore guests

Cons: None

Tasty home-cooked authentic Ethiopian!

Tucked into a Cheshire Bridge plaza, this cozy cafe is owned and operated by Rahul and her sister with slow-cooked Ethiopian cuisine prepared daily. Highly recommend the veggie combo that samples the vegan entrees and sides. Served with teff and wheat injera, one may request teff injera as well. Try Embilta Cafe!
