Desta - 50 Best Restaurants - Features - Atlanta Magazine


The menu at Desta, one of three Ethiopian restaurants in the Williamsburg Village shopping center off Clairmont Road, doesn’t significantly differ from other Ethiopian spots in Atlanta; the dishes are simply cooked and seasoned more carefully. For that reason, the vegetarian combo—with its array of spicy, ginger-laced vegetables and creamy, earth-toned lentil dishes—is one of our favorite meat-free feasts in Atlanta. Among the meatier options, try the buttery leg of lamb “tibs.”

    I agree with Bill, Desta has great vegiterian combo. My family and I enjoyed our vegiterian combo and Fish kitfo. Desta Ethiopian restuarant is an evoving place with no competition.
