I'm a vegetarian. First time at Lucy's. I sat in the back lounge. The sofas had some burn holes and the furniture needed some help. There was this annoying guy speaking really loudly about some inappropriate subjects, but that wasn't the restaurant's fault. I ordered the 6 varieties vegetarian sampler. It was exactly what I wanted it to be. The... More

I went to visit this place with my Etiopian friend. The food and service was very good. This place is popular for resident ethiopians because of their authentic and great food. This place is recommended!

After we were seated Able introduced us to a wonderful dinning experience. It just happened to be restaurant week in Houston. Able explained the menu throughly and... More

This was my first time eating Ethiopian food so we got the meat and veggie sampler combo. It was so good. Some of it was pretty spicy but I love spice. The staff was very friendly but a little slow to give us menus or drinks. We had to ask to see a menu. I would go back. Some of... More

This restaurant was recommended by my Ethiopian taxi driver when I visited Austin, Texas, a few weeks a go. It then made it to my Houston must do list. And I was not disappointed. The restaurant is strategically located off the freeway with easy access, and plenty of parking. The decor is modern with ample seating area; a sit down... More

The hubby and I went because I found a Groupon to go here, but it was not only a pleasant but amazing surprise! My other half loves spicy foods and exotic meats (I lean less spicy and vegetarian) but we both found something we liked here. The unique bread/naan-like starch they serve reminded me of what my friend from Eritrea... More

We have been there several times now and even the owner now recognizes us. Very warm and gracious lady. Best Ethiopian food in the city. Food can be served family style if you like. They also have a nice bar/lounger area.
