Great options, went in 2017!!!
I had never had Ethiopian food so I thought I would give it a try. I asked about gluten free and the first question was, are you celiac? They are really cued up and you can eat just about everything except the sandwiches and some of the desserts. We had the lamb for two which came with red lentils and green bean cabbage. It comes with Teff bread rolled up and you eat with this. It was pretty good.
100% of Uchenna's menu is either gluten-free or can be made such, with a rich assortment of vegan, vegetarian, and organic meats to choose from.
It’s a small space so sometimes reservations are helpful if you’re set on eating there.
Very few gluten items on the menu. It’s a small space so reservations can be helpful if you’re set on eating there.
Fantastic food and staff! Almost everything was gluten free naturally and the teff bread is gluten free. They also have a delicious chocolate cake dessert.
Amazing food and staff! I have Celiac's and feel awesome!
Fantastic! So many GF options that are also dairy free (extra points for me). The staff are very knowledgable and accommodating. Plus, I enjoyed an incredibly smooth chocolate dessert. I'm already looking forward to coming back.
Amazing! Chef Maya is so friendly, hospitable and happy to teach us newbies! Great food and I didn't have any celiac issues.
The dishes we had were delicious! There is almost no gluten in the restaurant, so little chance of cross contanination. Friendly service too.
Excellent gf food and the owner is one of the sweetest women I've ever met.
Wonderful dining experience, as a gluten intolerant traveler it can be hard finding places to eat but I highly highly recommend this location, even if you aren't a gluten-free eater!! Maya is a gracious hostess and wonderfully accommodating, a hidden diamond in Old Colorado City! 💜
So friendly and the food is great and flavorful.
Delicious gluten-free food! The chef reported they use olive oil, so may be pretty free from GM canola/soy oils. The injera is made with 100% teff flour, and grass-fed meats are on the menu. Eating at Uchenna was a great experience.
Excellent GF food. Very tasty. Organic a big plus. Reasonable prices. Maya is one super lady and chef. Our favorite GF place to eat.
Excellent and delicious!! Staff is knowledgable and entire menu is gluten free!
Has a lot of gf options. Menu marked with a star for gf items. I believe the injera is gf. Many Ethiopian restaurants add wheat to their injera which makes it hard to go to, this place is well trained on gf cooking. The woman who owns it is very very sweet too.
