Pros: inexpensive

Cons: some parking issues on busy nights

The flavors at Nyala Ethiopian Cuisine are so fresh and layered. All of the different flavors meld so well, but you still get the individual tastes from dish to dish. Go, try a few different foods, even the goat is great!

In Little Ethiopia there are tons of restaurants to choose from, but Nyala is the best! They catered my birthday party and were just wonderful to me and my guests. The food is outstanding and very reasonably priced. They come highly recommended!

Cons: not enough food and not that tasty

I really liked the food and the atmosphere at Nyala. We ordered the meat & veggie combo plates and the asa fish dish. The asa fish was my favorite, probably because it was the most spicy. My friend loved the lentils and the cabbage on the

Don't know how the last person spent $40 on one thing, considering I always split a veggie AND chicken platter, with wine, for under $30 (and have leftovers!). Basically, there are a bunch of good Ethiopian places in a row along this part

Pros: Good food & ambiance; more variety than most

Cons: Slightly pricier than the others along the row

Maybe it was because it was late Sunday afternoon, or that the waitress's boyfriend, cousin whatever, had come in for a drink or the cook had only a little of the food (vegie platter for 4 $40 )but our Waitress was just not there and

Hands down the best Ethiopian restaurant in Little Ethiopia on Fairfax. Since the first time I came here I've been hooked! The atmosphere of this family owned restaurant is very traditional and beautiful. Very nice and courteous staff.

In the Little Ethiopia section of Fairfax, there are several Ethiopian restaurants all stuck together in a row. Unfortunately, I've never tried most of them because Nyala is so tasty and affordable. The waitstaff is friendly, the menu is varied and uniformly delicious--even the kitfo! Their honey wine is a little bit on the sweet side for my taste, but other than that, it's an all-around great dining experience. Perhaps I don't actually need to try those other restaurants at all...

Waitstaff was very nice, explained everything for us and made some great recommendations.

As for the food, I'd recommend getting their "proposed" list for 4 people. There are no utensils here, everything is eaten with the special

Ethiopian food is so unique and when it's good, it is very good, and when it's not so good, it is time to leave. I've been to Nyala on four occasions over the last few years and was recently reminded that have always had a GREAT meal

Parking is a real drag anywhere on Fairfax, but it is worth the trouble to find it for Nyala. The food is terrific here and the prices are reasonable. The service is friendly enough, although not extremely attentive. You'll have to seek

One of the mainstays of a distinctive restaurant row on a stretch of Fairfax dubbed Little Ethiopia, Nyala provides an excellent introduction to the aromatic, warmly-spiced home-style cooking of this East African nation. It's a hands-on…
