"Went there during the Chicago restaurant week and we wanted to try something we never had before. The food was amazing!!!! The flavors were exotic and was something I definitely want to explore again. We sampled many things and especially loved the lamb stew (think it was called Ye-Beg Wot). My daughter commented that it is one of her favorite foods now and wanted to come back for her birthday."

"Demera was a great place to dine. I have been wanting some really good Ethiopian cuisine for a while since moving to Chicago. Well, I think I found it. The lunch portions were great. The price was a surprise as we budgeted to really enjoy restaurant week, it was so reasonably priced. It was three course of great food, great service and the manager came around from table to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. Demera's was awesome."

"Fun experience; eating with your hands! Memorable dinner. Great options for vegans. The hostess is never friendly when we visit and they are slow to come to your table for the first time, but our waitress was very nice at our most recent visit. overall, i would recommend this place for a fun evening."

"There are a number of Ethiopian restaurants in Chicago, but Demera shines above them all. The service is unusually warm and helpful. Demera offers 100% Teff injera for those who can't digest gluten -- and it is wonderful.
We recommend Demera to anyone who wants to eat with friends in a leisurely, communal way. you won't be disappointed."
