Good to know it's there - Edit

The place is a hole in the wall and the decor very basic, sort of fast food ambiance. However, the food was quite good, not spectacular but good. The menu is not vegetarian/vegan however these options are mostly marked and there is quite some choices. Service was very friendly and helpful. We were also unexpectedly presented with dessert (equally unexpectedly vegan). All for a very reasonable price. It's good to know that there is this place downtown.

Pros: Quite a range of vegan options. Quick and simple.

Cons: Fast food ambiance.

Delicious Birthday Dinner! - Edit

Tadu is a real gem in the city! I love Ethiopian food not just for the taste but for the "shared experience " you have with others all eating from the same plate! This was my husbands and mine first experience at this restaurant . The service was prompt and friendly and we will definitely visit again when we are in the city!

Pros: Quality and taste of food, Courteous and Friendly service

Really bad neighborhood. Really bad. - Edit

So the veggie plate was good. Reasonably priced and yummy. The service was lacking. Tiny glasses of water remained unfilled. It took a long time to get he check. The place is tiny- we had to wait on the sidewalk for a table for quite a while. This is only a big deal because the area is horrible. This appeared to be the only place not gated up (7pm, Sunday). There were swarms of homeless and mentally ill folks around, and very few other people. My friend and I are from NY and Chicago and both of us felt like this seemed like one of the worst areas we had ever been to. Would not return.

Pros: good food, good price

Cons: bad neighborhood, few tables

Amazing - Edit

If I could give it 5 stars I would. Small joint but with delicious food. Great portion sizes, filling. Heaps of vegan options, all outlined on menu with a code. They know what vegan is. Unlimited injera and gave my siblings (not vegan) some baklava free after. Very well priced. Highly recommend.

BEST Ethiopian in the city! - Edit

This is the BEST Ethiopian food we have ever had, most certainly the best in San Francisco. Beautiful presentation, deep and well developed flavours, perfectly cooked beans and veggies - everything you could ever want. The owner is incredibly friendly and so interesting to talk to.

Pros: Amazing food, Awesome selection, Amazing service

Would have given 5 stars if Happycow let me - Edit

Wonderful Ethiopian food! Very much worth a try if you have never tasted the Ethiopian kitchen. The best dish is the vegetarian combination. Very nice and pleasant owner.

Casual place with fresh classic Ethiopian food - Edit

A newer, small restaurant, modern, clean, casual and efficient, Tadu has seating for ~10 people and seems to be run by an Ethiopian family. The menu is well-labeled, with about half the dishes vegetarian and all but one of those vegan. The service was good, friendly and fast. We got the sampler and it was a good portion, with plenty of injera, and came out quickly. The food was tasty, not better or worse than other Ethiopian restaurants in the city. I did really love how on the plain salad usually included with samplers, they topped it with some creamy chickpea stuff that made salad much more fun.

Only con is that it's definitely in the Tenderloin, not a neighborhood I'd want to walk through in the dark. They do also offer the option to order online and pick up food, or arrange catering.

Pros: Reasonable prices, Quick service, Can order online

Cons: Neighborhood
