WESTWORD REVIEW

“We couldn’t stop eating, picking at the last of the meat on the chicken legs, nibbling little bites of the kittfo and homemade cottage cheese, pulling pinches of sauce-soaked injera off the serving platter; going back again and again to taste this amazingly strange, deliciously different, bizarrely comforting cuisine coming from the kitchen of not just Denver’s best Ethiopian restaurant, but one of Denver’s best ethnic restaurants, period.”

“After just a few bites, Arada had pretty much cemented its status as one of my favorite ethnic restaurants. Not only was the food excellent, but the room was very pleasant…”

YOU WON’T BE DISSAPOINTED

“Great Ethiopian food – We went to Arada for the first time Friday. The food was fantastic! We ordered a combination plate and an additional spicy beef dish. The presentation was wonderful, with each item in the combination dish explained as it was dished onto the platter. We’ve eaten at other Ethiopian restaurants, including a highly regarded one in New York City. Arada is as good as that one. Perfectly spiced, skillfully prepared. The service was attentive, the food arrived in a timely fashion, and the restaurant itself is nice. Its neighborhood is the Santa Fe Arts district. A perfect way to spend a Friday night. Go! You won’t be disappointed.”

“I can’t think of another cuisine that’s as much fun to eat with friends, and apparently devotees of Arada Ethiopian agree, since every time I’m there I see large parties bonding over the food.”
