Red Sea Ethiopian Restaurant is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food is delicious, but service was a bit slow and imprecise. We asked for water when we ordered but had to go to the counter later and ask again. We'd ordered two sambusas and specified "one of each flavor," but they were both the same. We didn't want collard greens in our veggie combo, so we were told we could double up on one of the other options offered in the combo. We chose extra lentils. The meal we were served included collard greens.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We enjoyed our experience here. It's a great value with most entrees under $10 and very filling, especially with the injera (spongy pancake/bread). Beware that spicy definitely means spicy, and the chicken in the combo is a chicken leg surrounded by spicy sauce. The salad that comes with the entree was excellent, and we liked the sambussa appetizer. The only reason we didn't give it a 5 is because we've been to other Ethiopian restaurants in other cities that were better, but Red Sea is definitely worthwhile, especially for the price, which is less than most others, even without a Restaurant.com discount.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best vegetarians meals in town, at a great price. My meat-eating friends enjoy it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have been going to Red Sea for years! I checked one time per week, but it isn't quite that much, but definitely more than once per month. I always bring new friends to enjoy the atmosphere and food. The people that work there recognize us and always greet us warmly. Red Sea has been in this location for an incredibly long time, I remember passing it on my way to school when I was a child. I'm a grandmother now, so it's been a while.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I counted my visits to the bar at 7. Each time I ran out of water, I had to walk to the bar and ask for a refill. The girl would often be standing there, lacking any motivation. Wow.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor quality of food. Good tasted like it was refrigerated for couple of days.
