The food was pretty decent specially the Injara's. Veggies were all pretty similar in taste. Ambience was ok - music was pretty loud and not good.

The place is simple and small but it is charming and super welcoming! Service is tremendous! Food taste great and they have it the Ethiopian way- you will eat in large bows with several "tapa like" portions and bread. You can eat with your hands as they do! It is an incredible cultural experience, even though you are in the... More

We had an amazing meal - not very expensive (I would say $$ not $$$) - good value from my perspective. The food was Fantastic - we had a variety of dishes and they were all delicious - we each had our favorites but overall we all agreed it was fantastic.

Visited for dinner. Great Ethiopian food( vegetarian options) along with appetisers and desserts ( Baklava). The decor was ethnic Ethiopian. However, to mention the service was quite slow - may be it was the weekend so busy.

I love this place and accept it for its quirks, odd basement location and even more subterranean function space below. Yes, it could use a face lift, sadly I have heard it will be closing its door shortly. Great, consistent food that I have loved since 199, although has been open since 1988, and I have used ARS as a... More

The service was friendly and the food was good but the place was very run-down and the basement where the bathrooms are was dreary and dirty and smelled bad. I was very disappointed. The food is good and the experience interesting so I hope they put some effort in cleaning up and maintaining the restaurant.

Staying in South End

Neighbourhood Profile
South End
Stroll down the beautiful brownstone lined streets while capturing views of Boston’s tallest buildings from a distance. Some of Boston’s best restaurants are scattered around this neighborhood. There are many gems to be found, from jazz clubs to classy bars and restaurants. It is also home to art galleries, interesting boutiques, artsy stores and SOWA open market during the summer months. The South End is a true find in the city, with a more residential feeling than Back Bay.
