So amazing, Zemeta will make you feel right at home - Edit

Owned by a wonderful Ethiopian woman whom the restaurant is named after, this place is cozy, delicious, and a great value. There are plenty of vegetarian/vegan options including the vegetarian platter which is less than $10 and could feed two! Give it a whirl you won’t be disappointed.

Probably the best Ethiopian food in Rochester - Edit

I have enjoyed several Ethiopian restaurants in Rochester, but if I had to choose one, it would probably be Zemeta. The staff is so friendly and the restaurant is cozy. The food is wonderful and the portions are huge.

The Vege Platter comes on a big platter with plenty of extra injera and some tasty selections ranging form regular salad to spicy lentils and tasty chickpeas. Also yellow lentils, potatoes and more.

{For those of you who do not like injera, just stop thinking of it as clammy "bread". It is not supposed to be bread. If you think of it as a cool sourdough pancake to be used to scoop up deliciousness, you will be much happier. Lets get with the program, folks!}

As with any ethnic restaurant, you can tell it is authentic by looking around the room. If so many Ethiopians like it, they must be doing something right.

They have a vege buffet on Friday nights. Better call to make sure. Check them out on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Zemeta-Ethiopian-Restaurant-602671806431768/

Pros: Delicious, Friendly
