smara Restaurant was established in 1986. For many years, Asmara has hosted several Bostonians, New Englanders, and Foreigner with Eritrean Food. Manypeople enjoy the Eritrean custom of eating with there fingers with our bread called Injera. Asmara Restaurant provides two kinds of Injera’s. One is made out of rice flour and the other is made out of Teff. Teff is a high grain packed with a considerable amount of protein, calcium, and fiber in each colorful seed. If you are allergic to wheat please call the manager to speak about what your options are. Asmara offers traditional tables called Mesob. They are woven baskets, which diner’s sit around the Mesob and the plate of food is placed in the center of the basket. Asmara Restaurant offers a variety of food to cater to the spicy, mild, vegetarian, carnivore, or vegan diners. The restaurant is filled with Eritrean artifacts, a variety of traditional items and several paintings done by an Eritrean Artist of his personal visions of Eritrea. Once you walk into Asmara Restaurant, we want you to experience something very different and satisfying with our flavorful food and our colorful culture.
Asmara... I have always wanted to try Ethiopian cuisine and I am glad I ended up at this place.
This place is located on the busy Mass Ave close to Central square. Parking can be a problem in rush hour and weekends. It's easy to find as it is on the main road.
The ambience gives the native etireanean and Ethiopian feel. They have both normal tables and the traditional knit tables( dining on them highly recommended).
The food was great. We ordered vegetarian combo with greens, lentils, spicy sauce, cabbage , injera and excellent tomato jalapeno salad.
The traditional music plays in a low volume.
+5 to the cleanest restrooms.
I go to Asmara very often. The food is delicious, and the service is fantastic. The weitress who works on evenings is really welcoming and nice. The music is quite low, making it easy to chat with your party.
Excellent food. It is an experience that everyone should have. The food is amazingly tasty. Would highly recommend it. Good spicy food in Boston.
Very good food, love it. I recommend to go if you like to try different kind of foods
My first experience with an Eritrean/Ethiopian cuisine. I was very reluctant as I am a vegetarian. We had Ahimliti Bebaynatu-vegetarian combination and traditional Ethiopian coffee. The vegetarian dish with Injeria Bread was very delicious and it was an experience. The coffee was excellent(black coffee, remember they do not have sugar free packets). Great service too
