We had dinner here with friends on a Sat. night. The restaurant was busy and the service was slow but the food was delicious. It was also fun to eat with your fingers!

Great Ethiopian food in a relaxed atmosphere. Many dishes for vegetarians and a full stocked bar. Funky Santa Fe location with many art galleries nearby. Service can be a little slow but if you want an exotic dinner with friends, etc. and don't mind a little wait check out Arada.

We went to Arada for the first time Friday. The food was fantastic! We ordered a combination plate and an additional spicy beef dish. The presentation was wonderful, with each item in the combination dish explained as it was dished onto the platter. We've eaten at other Ethiopian restaurants, including a highly regarded one in New York City. Arada is as good as that one. Perfectly spiced, skillfully prepared. The service was attentive, the food arrived in a timely fashion, and the restaurant itself is nice. Its neighborhood is the Santa Fe Arts district. A perfect way to spend a Friday night. Go! You won't be disappointed.

I came here on a Wednesday night right after work, at the location on Santa Fe. I don't know if Santa Fe is the new location or a second location. The restaurant was essentially empty, so it was easy to get a table. We ordered some kind of sampler platter for two people. The food was delicious. Downside was that service was SLOW. And I mean SLOW. There were only two other tables seated besides ours. I think the waitress serving was also the owner and maybe even the cook. Who knows. She kept disappearing into the back and never really kept checking on us to see if we needed more drinks or anything.

Visited Arada's new location on 7th and Santa Fe over the weekend. The food was delicious, unique and relatively reasonably priced. The service was ok - not bad, not great. My only complaint would be portion size. My boyfriend and I ordered two entrees (one each) which came with some sides, but it ended up being much less food than we anticipated and we were left wishing we'd ordered an appetizer. Food was amazingly spiced and seemed healthy... we'll be back.

Pros: Great food, good price

Cons: Can be slow if the place is crowded...because everything is cooked for you by the owner.

I've been to a couple of other Ethiopian restaurants but always come back here. I've never had a bad meal or left not feeling full. Try the combo. Its a bit more expensive but you can try many different things. Appetizers and dessert options are passible but better to spend your money on the main meal. Arada has bigger portions and more side orders than other places.

PROS: Never had a bad meal here.
CONS: Colfax hole in the wall ambiance
