Ethiopian restaurant Addis Ababa may be closed after 20 years on Queen West
Toronto is quickly running out of options for Ethiopian cuisine. As reported in The Grid, M&B Yummy closed last fall, followed by Danforth restaurant Dukem, which hopes to reopen in a new location. Now Addis Ababa, the 20-year-old stalwart on Queen West, also appears to be struggling. The restaurant was served with a notice of distress in early December, citing a hefty sum of unpaid rent and other costs, and its telephone number is now out of service.
Ababa has long been known for its laid-back atmosphere, huge shareable meat and veggie platters and traditional coffee service (complete with burning frankincense). If closed, the restaurant will be missed. That said, injera-lovers need not despair just yet: Nunu, Addis Ababa’s nearby sister restaurant, remains open to meet Torontonians’ misto needs.

weird… don’t they own the building? they used to
Although, sad I am not surprised at all. Something changed there a couple years ago and the service became absolutely awful. It used to be such a warm place and took a nosedive. The old AA will be missed but the recent AA doesn’t deserve customers.
Nunu is no comparison for addis ababa. Ever.
