Mesob Restaurant

515 Bloomfield Ave, Montclair NJ 07042

Under $25

Mesob Ethiopian Restaurant of Montclair, NJ is a favorite for both vegans & meat lovers with its authentic Ethiopian food. Since we opened in October 2003 all of our foods are prepared with imported Ethiopian spices blended daily. Our produce is always fresh and our sauces are prepared as ordered. The friendly staff and warm décor 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!)

The service was excellent and the server was very kind and helpful. Unfortunately, the chicken I ordered was too soft, almost as if under cooked, and I had to continue cooking it once I got home. My friend ordered lamb and the lamb was a bit tough. The portion size was small relative to the price. Given the kindness of the waitress, I may be willing to try the food again sometime though, Thank you!

Was happy to be able to return to Mesob after not eating indoors for one year. The food was great and the restaurantant took measures to improve your safety during covid with dividers between seats and sanitizers on the table. The only downside was that when I asked for water they should of told me that it was an additional $5 charge.
