If you're anywhere close to the N-Judah, head out to this gem of a restaurant in the Inner Sunset for some great grub! We love their sampler entrees - they don't cheat you at all on quantity and it allows you to try out several yummy dishes. The lamb is spicy and excellent. We were pleasantly surprised by the honey wine, which tastes super-sweet at first but is an excellent compliment to the food. Friendly service and an abundance of red lanterns and candle holders make this a chill and enjoyable place to come back to - we were quickly converted into regulars! Highly recommended.

My favorite items so far are the #9 Kliwa Begee (spicy lamb) and the #8 Zebhe Dorho (marinated chicken drumstick) dishes. The spicier dishes do excel especially the lamb one. The fusion of flavor and spices work very well with their tangy injera. I do think their meat dishes fare better than their vegetarian ones. There dos seem to be a slight difference in Ethiopian and Eritrean food that I've noticed now that I've eaten at a few Eritrean places: Eritrean serves most of the food with a thick yogurt and it has a few curry dishes whereas Ethiopian does not. I do like a few of the other dishes over the curry ones, but that's personal taste. I did not know the New Eritrean Restaurant and Bar had been in business here for about 6 years. It is hidden behind a nondescript white storefront, but once inside, opens up to a very welcoming and nicely decorated interior. The staff is nice, helpful, and friendly. I'm surprised the restaurant hasn't been crowded the times I've gone in (about 6:30pm) -- perhaps it was too early or perhaps it's because it's a block or two away from the main drag of the inner sunset restaurants and can easily get overlooked.
