Zemam's is one of our all-time favorite restaurants in Tucson and with 2 locations now! My wife and I have tried Ethiopian food in cities all over the US, and a couple overseas and to date nothing has come close to Zemam's authentic dishes and...More

I live in a rural town in Georgia, so whenever I visit my daughter in Tucson, Zemam's is on my "must do" list. The food is delicious, the portions are generous, the service is fast, and it's cheap!

My daughter and I had never eaten Ethiopian food before and enjoyed our meal. We chose a variety so we could sample meats and veggies. I enjoyed the tea too!

If you like to try new things or are already an aficionado, Zemam's is well worth a visit. What this Ethiopian restaurant lacks in decor, it more than makes up with the quality of the food and the friendliness of the service. In my opinion,...More

This little restaurant is simply one of the best in Tucson. Located in what was probably one a house on Broadway, the restaurant is in several small rooms. It is casual, with an odd assortment of tables and chairs. The service is beyond friendly, you...More
