I lived in Ethiopia for two years, and LOVE injera and wat. Enat gets it just right, with their slightly sour injera, spicy meat, and sweet vegetables. The servings are so big, you get 2 or 3 meals when you take out! Don't forget to order ib to sprinkle on top.

Enat is a great little hole in the wall in north Seattle, serving what I take to be Ethiopian food (how would I know?) The food is cheap and tasty, with vegetarian as a prime focus. There are meat dishes available. Be prepared to eat with your hands, scooping up tasty goodness with hunks of crepe-like flatbread.

The main dishes are typical Ethiopian and are good, but not amazing. But their bread is house made so great and salad is amazing.

Enat will amaze your taste buds with some uniquely seasoned dishes that represent common Ethiopian fare. The meals are served with Injera, a delicious sourdough like large spongy pancake-ish/tortilla-like eating utensil a meal about to make you very, very happy! The beers are cold and from Ethiopia and USA. You will come back and you will tell your friends!

Our son Ben, and daughter-in-law Cindy, took us to Enat Ethiopian Restaurant for an interesting and very enjoyable meal. Ben & Cindy ordered the vegetarian combo which they’ve had before, and ordered the Enat Combo for us which included a number of things on the menu, including chicken, lamb and beef stews and assorted vegetables. No utensils were used, instead... More

My friend asked me if i had ever had Ethiopian food. I told him no. He said we should have lunch sometime at a restaurant he knew that he thought I would like. I agreed. A week or so later we met at the Enat Ethiopian Restaurant in the Northgate neighborhood of Seattle. Forgot to mention that he had advised... More

We have been eating at the Enat for several years. The veggie combo is our favorite. The ladies make the Injera in the backroom, don't miss the homemade Awazi which will curl your toes! As the others said, ambience is so so.....but the food is fantastic!

We came to Enat because our main Ethiopian restaurant, Pan Afrika, closed. The location lacks ambiance but the food is wonderful and since we were the only ones there for lunch during a week day I can't comment on the service. They also serve African tea (seasoned with clove and cardamom) and Ethiopian beer, which is hard to find. I... More

we have had the meat combo, both in the restaurant and as takeout. Both were very good bargains at $14 for enough food for two people....The takeout order lacked the two lentil dishes included in the in house version, but both had three good meat dishes, greens and potatoes in addition to several injera...

Honest Ethiopian food, plenty of space to spread out and have a beer, and low, low prices. Veg friendly. Ambience is informal and true to the Ethiopian restaurant aesthetic ... and better lit than most. We go about once a month.
