This is the best Ethiopian restaurant Portland has to offer,i dont even know where to begin with how great this Sengatera is.Being Ethiopian myself i noticed upon moving back to Portland that a lot of the Ethiopian restaurants were more so catering to the american crowd,and didnt even offer kitfo (in my opinion the best dish ethiopia offers).than i came to sengatera not only do they offer it but they have the best lamb tibbs and wot.Yonas and his brother who own the place are the sweetest people ive ever met.they are so nice.i would recommend everyone to come here,when my family comes we always choose Sengatera.tasty delicious food with people who are sweeet and great service! a review from a fellow amahara
My family and I have eaten here several times, and really like it. Its affordable and the staff is friendly and welcoming- a step above a lot of Portland service. They have a one mesab- the traditional wicker table and I havent found another Ethiopian Restaurant that has one (displayed in the window doesnt count). Food is served in a gebeta - the big traditional tray but they put the liquidy stuff in bowls so that you can dump it onto your injera, or not which I think is a nice touch. The Key Wot:was fantastically spiced (we nearly licked the bowl), the Kitfo comes with an amazing homemade cottage cheese and the Ye’abesha Gomen is the best Ive had in Portland. We will definitely be back.

I freaking love ethiopian food and this place is my favorite. Most places kind of Amercanize their food and dont make it spicey at all. These guys add just the right amount! Its spicey enough to make your eyes widen at times but not so much that its painful. I really like the atmosphere, though I could do without the televisions. They host music on Friday and Saturday nights. The guys who run the place are super nice. And did I mention theyre both midgets?
I love this place the service is amazing the food is good. The guys that work there really make us feel welcomed and like family. Oh and the espresso is to die for delicious for all you espresso fans. I always order the lamb platter with ijerra. I think thats how that is spelled... anyway go there you will love them and their food.
for 5 year every year I and my family visit portuland, OR I found the best restaurant name Sengatera Ethiopian Resturant The food is the best, Place Decor is very attractive, we got the best customer service. in the hot weather we stays cool. I recommende to evry one to visit this restauran with your love and family.

Excellent food, good service. Lots of vegetarian offerings. Meat dishes too. Got busy about the time we finished... I think the staff was getting swamped by that... Guess what Im saying is try to go when theyre not crazy busy. As an aside: My digestion is pretty sensitive, I had no trouble at all here.
I fell in love with Ethiopian food when I found it here in Portland, and of course tried EVERY restaurant I could find. Sengatera is the most flavorful and enjoyable experience of them all. Every time I tried a new restaurant, I wished I was at Sengatera instead. You cant beat it.
Affordable and delicious Ethiopian food. Injera bread served with different types of meats anx veggies, awesome coffee, beers and spicies shipped directly from the Motherland ! Great Ethiopan Jazz in the background and impeccable service. Beautiful decor with Mesob table.
Delicious, flavorful and delightful. Sengatera was my first experience eating Ethiopian food and I was so amazed. Everything was delicious and very reasonably priced. Atmosphere was laid back and casual and service was friendly and quick. 10/10!
This is the only Ethiopian restaurant Ive tried in Portland (so far) and it was delicious! I ordered the assorted veggie platter and it was delicious. The restaurant was nice and quiet and our waitress was attentive and nice. I recommend!
Excellent food. Id never had Ethiopian food before. Id also never eaten food with my hands in this way. It was kind of interesting and a bit messy. The decor is really nice and warm. The Ethiopian beer was okay. I would return again.
This was an amazing experience!!! The service was outstanding, the people were genuine and truly proud and happy to serve their cuisine! Im very happy with this experience, I felt like I traveled to a distant and exotic place!
all of the staff are very welcoming and seem to be genuinely invested in delivering wonderful service. The food is phenomenal, and I feel great about supporting this family owned business. Highly recommended!!!
This place is the BEST Ethiopian food in Portland! Not only that the service is awesome and the atmosphere is excellent. The owner and staff take great pride in creating a TRUE authentic experiance.
Great Ethiopian food and vibe. Was here during a salsa night...yea, very interesting. Salsa night at an ethiopian restaurant. But it was fun to observe the crowd, and enjoy a really good meal.
The food here is so delicious. You cant go wrong. I especially liked the lamb. The veggie sampler wad great as well. The atmosphere is nice. I highly recommend trying this restaurant.

Out of all the Portland Ethiopian restaurants, this place has the best yellow split pea dish in town. Well definitely be going back and getting two orders next time.
Such genuine friendliness and customer service were what really stood out to me and the food was unlike anything I ever had. And the coffee is a must have
Found this place because it was close to the Lloyd center. Amazing food and the staff are super friendly. Decor is great, definitley will be back.
