About Abyssinia Ethiopia Restaurant

Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant Indianapolis is a family owned and operated restaurant that was opened in 2003 to serve the people and visitors of the Greater Indianapolis with the ever tasty dishes of Ethiopia. All meals cooked in our restaurant are cooked from scratch by experienced Ethiopian Chefs. They go through the typical rigorous process that is associated with preparing authentic Ethiopian dishes. 

Share a truly unforgettable dinning experience right here in Indianapolis at Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant without having to travel thousands of miles to Ethiopia.
    Gather around the messob ( a hand-sewn traditional table made of grass blades) made for a goup to eat from the same platter. Eating from a common plate and sharing the injera (a sponge like bread, pictured to the left) is socially significant in the Ethiopian culture and also creates a bond of freindship and personal loyalty. It is said that the people who eat from the same plate will never betray one another.
    At Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant we put a personal touch of distinction to make our dishes very delicious and unique. Prepare yourself for a truly unforgettable dinning experience.
