Truth be told, I’ve yet to meet a lentil dish I didn’t like, but this is masterful stuff here.
Also deserving of a mention is the authentic coffee ceremony, during which you get to actually see and smell the coffee beans being roasted. A bit of zen-inducing incense later, and the java is poured from a traditional clay pot into white cups – with sugar or without – which are then distributed to each participant in the ceremony. Fair warning, though, this ain’t your mama’s mild roast. All the better to enjoy the rest of your evening of good food and good company – with eyes wide open.

The food was so flavourful and plentiful and our host so helpful in explaining the different dishes and helping us choose our meal. I’ve been there a few times before and always loved the food, but last night’s visit was my favourite meal there yet! Can’t wait to return. What an awesome ethnic experience with amazing company as always.”
Julie B. said: “What a great dinner experience last night at World Marathon Ethiopian. I loved the blend of different spices in the dishes. The host was very charming and helpful in explaining the menu. All the wonderful little details from the warmed towels, sharing the savoury platter, the coffee ceremony made this a wonderful night out with all you fun ladies!”
Sylvia V. said: “World Marathon Ethiopian food was outstanding! A very gracious host, too. If I had to put all the flavours I savoured tonight in order of preference, it would go like this:
- coffee ceremony
- green lentils
- injera (bread)
- beef tips
- red lentils
- vanilla ice cream with mango sauce
- carrots & cabbage
All so flavourful and exciting! The decor was lovely and sincere. And the company was fab as always!”
