Ethiopian Restaurant is a straightforward kind of place, so much so that It's name is, as far as I can tell, just Ethiopian Restaurant. It's like they took all of the effort they could have put into branding and decorating and naming the restaurant something catchy into and put it into the food instead. Which, when you think about it, is probably how it should be.
I stopped by for lunch today, which meant that I got to try the $9 all-you-can-eat lunch buffet. It was basic, but impressive: beef stew, spicy chicken stew, red and dark lentils, collard greens, green beans, rice, injera, potatoes and cabbage. I got some chicken, but barely touched it because I was so busy stuffing my face with the vegetables.
Despite it being noon on a workday, we were the only people there, which seems a little crazy given how delicious and cheap the food is.
Ethiopian Restaurant is open Tuesday through Sundays for lunch and dinner. It's kid-friendly, vegan and vegetarian friendly, and they accept credit cards. If you're having trouble finding it, it's in the shopping center next to the Malco Theatre at Germantown Rd. and Macon.
