First time for at Ghenet, and first real Ethiopian dinner as well. What to order? I eat everything.

  1. ugh...i know a few people who like ghenet but i think its a filthy excuse for ethiopian food...i saw my flies near my table, i had to complain.

    the only ethiopian i eat is in LA or DC so im not much help with a NYC alternative but ghenet is not great...try meskerem (sp?)...people like that one.

        never been to Ghenet...had good food at Queen of Sheba (Midtown/Hell's Kitchen) a few years ago...

        Agree. The meal was yucky. Maybe I just don't like Ethiopian food.

      3. Ethiopian restaurants here serve similar food. Since it's your first time, get the meat and veggie combo/sampler. Make sure it includes shiro and tibs of some kind.
