GHENET Best Ethiopian Restaurant in brooklyn

Where Angels Eat!

In the cozy town of Brooklyn, find this heavenly place called Ghenet that serves mouthwatering Ethiopian cuisine. Ghenet, or we call it Heaven, was founded by Yeworkwoha Ephrem.

Ephrem was born and raised in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and its diversity exposed her to an assortment of culinary techniques and flavors. The exposure and her experience want her to offer Ethiopia to her customers, representing her restaurant as a hybrid of the culture, language, art, and authentic flavors.

Ghenet is a story of her experience and discoveries. She has visited the four corners of the world- lived in the Middle East, traveled across Asia, Europe, and South America, which adds to her experience, inspiration, and artistry.

Ephrem celebrated the flavors of New York by discovering the spice markets in little India, meat market that used to be on the West Side, Veniero’s for pastries, Katz for pastrami, and running to Astoria for authentic Gyros.

We are Open for Brunch, Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm.



All you need is love and a lunch break.

Imagine taking a flavorsome bite of freshly made Injera that melts beautifully in your mouth; you taste Ethiopia. Grab your midday meal at Ghenet’s and enjoy the mouthwatering delicacies of Ethiopia prepared with love.


Dinner is better when we eat together.

Relish the taste of classic Ethiopian delight from our dinner menu. We serve the best salad, paired well with our lovely variety of stew. And yes, save room for Dessert too.
