Shyam S

Demera is a gem of a place – a real Chicago institution – that sits perfectly in Uptown opposite the Green Mill and across the corner from the Aragon. You know this place is legit because over half the clientele are Ethiopian, so it feels like a homecoming of sorts.

Demera is the very first Ethiopian restaurant that I have ever been to, and the very first time I tried Ethiopian food. And, well, the rest is history! Demera deserves all the praise for getting me hooked on such amazing, flavorful food! 

Dawn S

Hands down a solid 5-star restaurant. There’s a reason this place has nearly 2k excellent reviews because it’s absolutely fab! Totally grab a group of friends and try all the different dishes. Highlights: anything lamb and all beverages. A Chicago staple. 

Faith F

Amazing food. I am vegan and there was so much to choose from. I got a huge all-vegan platter and it was to die for. Definitely recommend. It was so much food and definitely worth the money. One platter is enough to feed 2-4 ppl. Also, the atmosphere is very nice. I loved all the Ethiopian artwork on the walls! 

Afshan D

I have been here so many times and it’s honestly one of my favorite go-to places when I miss a nice home-cooked meal. I cannot stop raving about this restaurant! The food is fresh, light, great variety, resembles Indian food (what I grew up eating), and perhaps the few restaurants that do not cause me indigestion or bloating after. 

Sarah C

The atmosphere pulls you in, the welcoming smile of staff makes you want to sit down, and feh delicious food makes you glad you came! The hot tea was a lovely addition to a great meal! I would definitely get it again. We shared the vegetarian combo and an appetizer of the spicy farmers’ cheese with bread. It’s a great way to try a little of everything!
