Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant
Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant of Montclair, NJ is a favorite for both vegans & meat lovers with its authentic Ethiopian food. All of our foods are prepared with imported Ethiopian spices prepared daily. The friendly staff and warm decor makes Mesob the perfect place to relax with family and friends. Our Injera, a delicious sourdough Ethiopian flat bread that you wrap your food with, makes Mesob a favorite with kids, where it's a treat to "eat with your hands." (but we also have silverware, if you prefer!)
I love Mesob - the staff is always welcoming, the food is made of the freshest vegetables, meats and spices - all authentically prepared and SO FLAVORFUL! And they have such a friendly and interesting Facebook page that you always feel part of the family.
This place is really really awful.
High prices, terrible service and very boring food that leaves a lot to be desired. I have been to better Ethiopian places in NYC - WAY better.
Do not waste your time with this place when so many great restaurants exist in the Montclair area.
This was one of the worst places I have eaten in a long, long, time.
This is probably the best Ethiopian restaurant in New Jersey. The atmosphere is superb and the food is of wonderful quality. The owner is a delightful woman. If you're up tight about eating with your hands, you may not enjoy the experience. If you're a novice to Ethiopian food, I describe it as the consistency of Indian food (goopy), but with a different (less spicy) taste. They present the food in a large flat spongy bread, which you break off and use to nip the food with. You don't actually pick up the food with your hands - you use the bread. Remember to try the Ethiopian coffee, where they present you with the freshly roasted coffee beans in a basket before they brew it. It's strong like cappuccino, but very aromatic, like an exotic coffee.
I love mesob i went for my dads birthday once and they were so polite the waiters and waitresses made me feel like i was eating at my own house the food was different than what im used to but it was delish and flavorful
This place is great. The meals are usually for 2 people. You get a bunch of choices all on one giant pancake. You rip off shreads of the cake/crepe and use it to wrap up chunks of the food. NO UTENSILS! It's really a lot of fun. BYOB.
Loved it! Striking atmosphere! Mesob is a cool, friendly place with a really authentic atmosphere, courteous service and deep respect for the Ethiopian culinary tradition. Mesob restaurant is the shining beacon of Ethiopian tradition, culture, and cuisine.
The food was all excellent and demonstrated a variety of cooking techniques and tastes and in my opinion some of the freshest and most flavorful food in town.
I have been to a Mesob many times. First, a sense of calm and relaxation overcomes you upon entering this restaurant. Pleasant aromas waft through the air. The staff is always pleasant, warm, and welcoming. The food is full of flavor and spices that are consistently delicious. Don't miss the experience at Mesob.
