Still love Langano Skies... even with the lengthy wait

We stopped by Langano Skies a couple Saturdays ago around 7pm to a packed house and only two servers. They readied the one empty table for us straight away, but once sitting down, it was awhile before we received drinks, placed orders, etc. As far as food went, we waited about an hour to receive our dishes, and everyone else seemed to be in for a similar wait.


 Yemisir Kik Wot (split red lentils; $9.50), Atekilt Aletcha Wot (potatoes, cabbage and carrot; $10) and Kaey Wot (beef and spices; $13)

As one of our regular spots, this one negative experience will not deter us from heading back. While an hour was definitely too long to wait for our meals, we left happy and full of good food.

Here's the thing: if you avoid going there on Saturday and Sunday nights after 6:30, you can get exactly the same food on a different night and you don't end up sitting and waiting for an hour. We tend to go on an off-night (Wednesday or Thursday), and earlier in the evening (6pm or so), and we always get our meals very quickly.

Thanks, Jennie. I should have gotten into good times to go. You're exactly right.

Here's a link to my first post... I think I covered service and times a bit more here: http://loosenyourbelt.blogspot.com/2008/12/langano-skies-fantastic-ethiopian-fare.html

I know we went in at a bad time, but living on Whyte, we would have been waiting wherever we went. If we were in a rush, we definitely would have gone elsewhere, but we had time and didn't mind the wait.
