Re: “Uchenna

I love Maya, her food, and her restaurant. The CORRECT address for her website is uchenaalive.com, with 2 As. Please fix this! I've emailed you about it before.

Re: “Uchenna

The only reason this is a one star is because I can't give a zero. I don't know any thing about the food, because Maya would not serve me. I walked in, properly attired and clean, after a day of Christmas shopping. I did not know how to order, so I walked up to the register. Maya gestured to a table, so I sat down and waited. I read Maya's life story on the inside of the menu and all about food=love=family. I waited and waited. There were only two other parties in the restaurant. Maya made repeated trips to both tables, but never said a word to me. Never greeted me, didn't seat me, didn't serve me. I walked out. No love for me and I don't know what I did to deserve being treated so badly.

Re: “Uchenna

The food was terrific. Definitely put this on your "try" list. The chef, Maya, is also the owner and hostess. She cooks your food after you order it; this is not fast food by any means. Make sure you have time to spare when you visit. You'll be using injera (Ethiopian bread that's similar to a crepe in form) as your fork, scooping up bites of food from a large plate. It's messy at first but you improve by the end of your meal.

The food is flavorful and mildly spicy, although you can order it spicier. We ordered a lamb dish and a vegetarian combo to share with each other so we'd have a variety of flavors to try. It was a lot of food.

Prices were great.

Maya is very friendly and welcoming - she's very busy but will take a minute or two to chat with you and answer questions.
