Authentic Ethiopian restaurant

Providing the highest quality of food and service since 2017

Our Story

Makeda Ethiopian Restaurant is named after the nebulous figure, the Queen of Sheba (10th century BCE) - known also as Makeda. Our vegetable, vegan and meat dishes are served in the form of wot, a thick stew, or tibs, a sautee of grilled meat along with vegetables, served over injera. To commemorate that the origin of coffee is firmly rooted in Ethiopia’s history, Makeda also serves patrons with traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony. The art displays in the restaurant are additional attraction on their own.
