Family owned and operated, Zemeta Ethiopian Restaurant takes great pride in everything that comes out of their kitchen. They are rich in the Ethiopian tradition, from their foods to the traditional coffees. Everything is homemade and they use only the finest and freshest meats, vegetables, and ingredients. Every dish is made fresh to order. Every Friday and Saturday they feature a vegetarian buffet for both lunch and dinner. This is a must try, the food is excellent along with very friendly service. For catering of any business or family event, ask for Nate, he will take great care of you.
