This place totally rocks. It's just so bizarre, from the outside it's this strange dingy bar but they serve full on Ethiopian food! And it's GOOD!! You need to walk into the darkness of Club Waziema and then go sit in the best seat in the house- the converted closet with two chairs and a table shoved in it. (Unless you get claustrophobic while you eat... then maybe just pick a normal table.) Eventually, after your eyes adjust, you'll realize the place is lined in velvet patterned wallpaper and there's even pool tables in the back of the bar! Oh, this place is gettin' classier by the minute... but the food is really great here, it's flavorful and closer to authentic than one might imagine from the look of the place. And best of all, it's fairly cheap! (for Ethiopian food). I'd definitely recommend this place for the food and the overall experience. Who knew dive bars and Ethiopian food could work so well? (Though hey buddy, lay off the pool table until you wash the beef tibs off your hands...)

I adore this place. I feel about it the same way I do about Xochitl (see my Xochitl review to find out what I mean). I've been here a handful of times since they've opened, and it's been dead consistent each time. The menu hasn't changed and there aren't any specials. Now, normally that isn't a good thing. But that's for your average restaurant. Zahav is by no means average. They don't change because they don't have to. I've had pretty much everything on the menu at this point, and I've never disliked anything. My favorites however are the haloumi, fried cauliflower, sweetbreads, all the hummus and salatim dishes, the chopped liver.....wait, I think I'm on my way to naming the whole friggin menu. But you get my point. I think the decor is really warm and cozy, the service has always been good to me, and I even like the odd location of the restaurant. It feels like you're climbing a hill to get to the cave at the top. (Maybe it's because I went recently amidst the snow storm, but 7 Years in Tibet comes to mind) I will say this though, Zahav is more for people who already appreciate eating different foods from different cultures. It won't change the minds of people who are set in their pizza and burger ways. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
