Note:       Tena yistiligne (Hello) and welcome to TANA, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant, sheltered and surrounded by the flourishing East Liberty business district of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We are proud to present to you an exquisite and authentic cuisine from one of the oldest countries in the world, Ethiopia, a country of three thousand years of history, thirteen months of sunshine and home of the earliest known human kind, Lucy, our ancestor.

Tana Ethiopian cuisine offers a great variety of entrés featuring dishes made of beef, chicken, and lamb, as well as the vegetarian's delights such as vegetables, split peas, lentils and salad. We use herbs and spices imported directly from Ethiopia in all of our dishes to provide you with a unique taste. Cooked to perfection to everyone's taste and expectations, we guarantee that you will have an experience of a lifetime, savoring the Ethiopian delicacies at the same time. At Tana, we promise that you will eat to your heart's content. Dining takes place in a communal setting, where you will eat out of a common plate using your hands, and where no utensils are provided (Yikes!!!), except for the non-initiated and the non-adventurous upon request.

Of course, an Ethiopian dining experience is never complete without the taste of Ethiopian coffee where it is brewed and served fresh in your presence.

At the end of this wonderful experience, do not forget to say AMESEGINALEHU (thank you) to your server.

Note: For those wondering how we pick these restaurants, we, first, try to stay away from any chain establishments, go to places with low- to medium-priced meals, pick places that are not typically noisy (like sports bars), pick places that will give us separate checks and pick places that will generally allow us to sit around after we are done eating to just talk for a while. Wi-Fi and alcohol service are a plus. We also ask for input but generally get little. Given all that, it’s wherever the selection committee thinks is interesting. We tend to like all types of food, including and in particular all types of ethnic foods.

Don’t like our selection? Suggest someplace different. We are always looking for suggestions and will consider all input.
