The food here is excellent. Highly recommend this restaraunt to anyone who wants experience authentic Ethiopian food. Our waiter Endale was awesome.
This meal surpassed all expectations! The food was full of kick and flavour, it was amazing! The actual restaurant could use a bit of cleaning, but the food itself more than made up for it
This was my first time eating Ethiopian food. I found it interesting. I have never had bread like this in my life. It was fantastic! We ordered a meat and a vegetarian combo. Both were incredible. I think we had to get a doggie bag. The portions were huge. Inexpensive place to eat.
First time visit. Decor is rustic; lots of ethiopian-inspired qualities, including artwork, wall covering and paint. Music at a low volume, so nice background sound. Lighting a bit dim, but not too dark; subdued ambiance. Staff friendly. Ordered combo platter; decent amount of the three meats, each of which was tender and had distinct and pleasant flavours; lentils and peas... 更多
We ordered a platter for two as takeaway dinner, we got home and the injera was fantastic, it had the right flavours and texture and they rolled it properly so that it stayed moist until we got home. The rest of the food was in tin takeaway containers filled with oil. At first glance it looked like vomit or scraps.... 更多
This was my first time to Calgary and my boyfriend and I tried two Ethiopian restaurants: Blue Nile and Marathon. My strong preference is Blue Nile. Marathon was OK but the portions are small and the food didn't taste as good as the other Ethiopian restaurant. It wasn't bad.... just not the best.
I like Ethiopian vegetarian food in general, and wasn't disappointed by this one. It was very tasty and well prepared. The restaurant was almost full for dinner on a Wednesday, so it seems quite popular, too.
If I don't have marathon at least once while visiting Calgary then I am so disappointed. My family is all about tradition--and Marathon is one of ours. Excellent flavour and food. If you aren't into ethnic food you may not be used to Ethiopian spices, my family on the other hand love it! Bring someone you love to chat with... 更多
Pros- New food experience, not busy, good service Cons- Filled up on injera not on the meat, which questions value.... 更多
