this place is legit as it comes. during quarantine, they offer packages to make it easy to feed a family for delivery or take out. being a meat eater or vegan is a piece of cake, too.

there's a sunday brunch (which seems a bit less vegan friendly), and during regular normal not-end-of-times, there is a lunch buffet (vegan fri

I’ve eyed this place for the past year since I moved down the street. the exterior is pretty unassuming, the inside was a pleasant surprise. Can’t wait to eat inside when they reopen on 5/25/2020. Ordered the veggie combo and the beef combo and it was more than enough food for dinner and lunch the next day. Would take family and frie ... read more

Tasty! Haven't eaten out much during the dreaded pandemic. Easy online ordering. Food was ready shortly after I arrived for take out. Enjoyed my meal. Not really in my neighborhood, but I'll keep Habesha in mind if I'm out and about in the future.

So far this is my favorite Ethiopian in Austin. I typically get the vegetarian combo and the Siga Wot together, feeding between 2 and 3 of us (or 1, if it's just me ordering delivery because don't make me choose!) Sometimes the Siga Wot beef is a tad bit dry, but I still love it. Once the sauce settles into the injera bread -- yum! H ... read more

One of the best places to eat authentic Ethiopian food. The service was excellent, the servers pleasant and the ambience of the restaurant was inviting.
Just a great place to hang out with family and friends over some lip-smacking food.

Delicious. My family took me and I was impressed with the huge vegetarian selection. Was a wonderful introduction to Ethiopian cuisine.

Great place. No issues.

I rarely have African food but it's really worth trying. After I try it again I may raise their star level. The meat option just didn't wow me, next time I'll try the vegetarian version.

This place is great. The No. 14 is the best.

Our first experience with Ethiopian food was delightful.
Megan Burns via google.com - Feb 29, 2020
Really great customer service but the food is kind of bland. You get more flavor at the other ethiopian restaurants but the customer service generally worse at day Asters or Ethiopia II. It was just really bland.

One of my favorite hidden gems! I love to pop over for their lunch buffet during the week. Multiple delicious vegetarian options, and the food is really fresh. They're never busy (which blows my mind), and the space is huge! Definitely worth checking out!

I used to eat Ethiopian food frequently when I lived in Dallas. I had to find an Ethiopian place in Austin. Came here and it did not disappoint. Everything on their menu is delicious, and the buffet has tons of great choices. The sampler platters are a great option if you aren't sure what you like yet. The servers are very nice.

The food was amazing, the place is adorable, and the staff is incredibly delightful. Our waitress was precious, and it is clear that it is run by a family, and there is just so much Heart there. I will go back again and again for the vibe, the sweetness, and for the fresh and incredible food.

We liked this place for the food. The service was horrific. The server never came by and when we ordered things they never came. Especially drinks. The food didn’t come with what it said it did on the menu and we asked for it when our food arrived and it never came. It seemed that the restaurant was very busy with only 2 servers.

My husband and I made a reservation for Valentine's day. We wanted to try something new, in our neighborhood.

Stopped by for Sunday dinner.  I heard that famous Ethiopian menus are Injera, Wot and Kitfo and Tibs.

We ordered Alicha Siga Wot ($13.95) and Doro Key Wot($13.95), both came with Injera.
Alicha Siga Wot was a bit similar to curry, not too spicy and easy to eat.  Dor Key Wot was a bit thicker and spicier.  The injera was ex

Ethiopian food is one of my favorite cuisines. Habesha does a great job of adding the right amount of spice. I always love the lentil, split pea, and collard greens dishes. If you like lamb, the lamb is also delicious. I also loved our server - she gave us some recommendations and told us honestly when we ordered way too much food. T ... read more

La experiencia y sabor de la comida es genial. Vale la pena probar sabores nuevos. Una de las principales diferencias es que no tienen cubiertos (tenedor o cuchara) en la mesa, por lo que comes directo del plato. Muy al estilo etiopie.

Amazing food and service! The dishes are spicy, yet packed with flavor. As a result of the carbs from the injera and the spice from the meat/veggies, the portions are extremely filling.

Herbage garnished in most appropriate habiliments. An accessible location albeit at a congested intersection, the vegan combo satisfies.

Habesha is excellent. I have dined there twice and both times the food was sooooooooooooo delicious. Every bite made me and my partner super happy. I was sad when I began to get full! Also, the service was excellent and the price was reasonable.

We were unsure about this gem due to its location. Fortunately we went and it is now one of our favorite places! If you are looking for something that is not BBQ or Tex Mex, this restaurant is a must!

I had a party of 11 hanging out at the Emassy Suite nearby. Where should we go that also will satisfy vegans and vegetarians ? Check on Yelp - problem was the phone number for questions did not get through - the other was for grub hub. Someone suggested using Open table - so I booked for a 7 even though we ended with 11 going.
