ABOUT Abyssinia Ethiopian Restaurant

Serving Great Food in Sonoma County - Since 2008

Abyssinia isn't just a restaurant; it's a tapestry woven with threads of resilience, family, and a deep love for Ethiopian culture. Our story begins with Wodi Merso, a woman of unwavering spirit who dared to dream beyond the borders of her homeland. Leaving Ethiopia with her five children, she embarked on a journey of courage, seeking a brighter future in America. Undeterred by the challenges of a new language and culture, Wodi persevered, fueled by a burning desire to create a better life for her family.

In 2008, Wodi's dream blossomed into reality with the opening of Abyssinia. More than just a culinary adventure, it became a vibrant celebration of her heritage, a warm embrace for those seeking warmth and community. The aroma of simmering spices fills the air, carrying you to the heart of Ethiopia with every bite. Each dish, lovingly prepared using generations-old recipes, tells a story – of family gatherings, vibrant markets, and the rich tapestry of Ethiopian life.

Today, Wodi's legacy lives on through her children and grandchildren, who carry the torch of her passion. Witness their dedication in the welcoming smiles, the attentive service, and the pride radiating from their eyes as they share the flavors and stories of their heritage. Step into Abyssinia, and you're not just a customer; you're part of the family, invited to experience the warmth, flavors, and enduring spirit that began with one woman's dream. Come, join us on this delicious journey – your next adventure awaits.
