Back when I lived in Portland in the 1980s Alberta wasn't known for its restaurants, but now there are quite a few and my current favorite is Gojo Ethiopian. My wife ate there once before and liked it so much she took me back on...More

We just had lunch at Gojo. As it was early, we were their only customers. The owner made some suggestions (at my request), and we enjoyed every bite. The restaurant was very clean and tidy, as was the rest room. We'll definitely go back!

Love the tibs here, so we made the drive to the restaurant, which, according to their hours, closed at 9pm on that day. Arrived at 6:45pm to find the doors locked with closed sign displayed. People inside, but obviously not accepting customers. Disappointing.

I was really impressed by the food here. The restaurant is at the far, west end of Alberta and looking at it from the outside, it doesn't look like much. But the food was very well done. We had the veggie combination dish and a...More

This was a small, friendly little storefront restaurant. The decor is simple, but has homey touches like baskets and paintings that give you a bit of Ethiopian atmosphere. The menu was very simple, just entrees and beverages, no appetizers, soups or salads. The service was...More

My sister and brother in law had never eaten Ethiopian, and I had only had it once. We found this place almost by accident. I am so glad we came in; awesome spot!! The waitress was incredibly patient and helped explain the menu and cuisine...More
