TON of great food

I used to frequent this spot years ago when it was a Thai place (great one, I might add). Then they moved and it turned into an ""Eritrean"" restaurant. I don't even know where that is. I was upset my Thai place was gone, but I read the reviews on here, and decided to give it a shot. This is exactly what my wife and I ordered - a Sambusa appetizer, huge plate of their family sampler dinner, which included lamb, chick... view more

Best Eritrean / Ethiopian food in the BAY!!

Ok, so the other night my boyfriend and I decided to go to a little Eritrean restaurant that we had driven by but assumed wasn't good because we've been disappointed at just about every Ethiopian place in town. We usually have to drive to the east bay for good Ethiopian or Eritrean food. We were both blown away by how great the food was! Everything was FRESHLY MADE!!!! Everything was DELICIOUS!!!

Good ethiopian food and friendly staff

Good and inexpensive ethiopean food. Traditional decor and traditional service. The hot sauce is delicious, too!

Delicious food and friendly people- best Eritrean food in the Bay Area!

My favorite dishes are the Kitfo, served in the traditional style, raw, and the Kelwa Beggee- the spicy lamb in clarified butter. But everything they make is SO GOOD. And the whole family is quite pleasant and friendly. This is a great place to come, on your own, with a group of friends, or with a date.

Good food!

I went to Assab the other day and really enjoyed my meal. I had the lamb curry dish. Service was pretty good and the prices are faily cheap. You definitely get a lot of food though! \r \r If you've never been to an African type restaurant, be prepared to eat with your hands. They do have utensils, but it's traditional to eat with the bread that comes with your dish. Yummy stuff!

Fantastic Food

My dinner here was, hands down, the best meal I have had in the city while living here for the past three years. We ordered the Kantisha, Okra, and Spinach served family style on a huge platter with Injera (the soft bubbled bread.) The Kantisha and Okra were seriously mouth wateringly amazing. The Spinach was also really good. The waitress was sweet and prompt and kind. This family owned, family run restaurant w... view more

Amazing comfort food

Assab was one of the first restaurants I went to when I first got to SF and boy has it NOT let me down. I have come back 3 times now and it is still great. Brings back fond memories of exploring the city and its eats. Don't need the menu anymore-- our usual is #17 and 18 (my partner is the vegetarian). The service is fantasic and they love when you clean up the entire giant plate. Really good food, really good p... view more

Very good

I had never had eritrean food before this. This place is totally mellow and has a great atmosphere. The food was really good and you could tell everything was made fresh. We had a starter which was fried filled with potatoes and peas and it was similar to a samosa. Steaming hot and made to order. Shared a veggie plate of curried potatoes and veggies with the spongy bread you wrap around it. Lots of lentil dishes an... view more

A Must (w/ my 3rd/4th? set of notes)

My new discovery: Assab on Geary... GREAT food! Fresh and wonderfully prepared and served. I have been to several Eritrean and Ethopian places and this one is the BEST. Everything was VERY fresh--it took a while to get the food but it was VERY much worth the wait. I am DEFINITELY going back and am telling everyone who likes this cuisine to try Assab. Thanks! 12/2005: It's three years now that I've been going he... view more
