Renowned Eri- Ethiopian Restaurant & Bar feeding the community by hand for over 25 years.

Dahlak Restaurant is envisioned as an important staple in this always growing community of Baltimore Avenue and city of brotherly love. Thanks to the founding couple, Neghisti Ghebrehiwot, the late, Amare Solomon and the constant working efforts of our ever-growing family, we bring to you award-winning, authentic food derived from the intricacies of Eritrean and Ethiopian cuisines.
We eat with our hands because the food is finger-licking good! ..and it's tradition. Order up a Yedoro Watt and watch the chicken fall off the bone. Order up a veggie combination dish and discover the way vegetables are suppose to taste from a recipe passed on from many generations back. Food aside, we remain a social hotspot for all those looking to dive into-- or you could simply dive into our bar and relax. We continue the nightlife with weekly karaoke, live acts, and late night jam sessions including various new and local talents. This we do and we do not disappoint. We thrive to further welcome a diverse community and provide solace to everyone and anyone new in West Philly.

~~~We are now serving food & liquor from both our full menu and our nightly fusion menu specials --all night, every night until 2am!~~~

~Available for booking at our venue.

Hello neighbors and friends I'd like to make a public announcement regarding the status of Gregory "Red" Dorsey to those of you who know him. For those of you who don't know, Red has been our fellow long-time patron, local resident and honored Vietnam Veteran. He has also been looking out for me for well over 20 years. Greg/Red has battled some tough times over these past couple of years, from being placed in hospice care, surviving that, having his apartment building burned down in the block of 47th and Hazel, to being back in hospice care due to organ failure. We've been looking after him over these past months at the VA hospice care unit and we've noticed that the state of his condition has been up and down at moments. Today, his nurse informed me that condition over these past few days has declined drastically and that he may only have next two days until he finally passes. His brother has also been by his side along with his family members and friends. I went to see him today he appeared peacefully asleep. Red has said over these past months that he has come to terms with his condition, he's lived a fulfilling life, and he wouldn't want anyone to mourn him but to celebrate his departure--where he'll rest in everlasting peace and be exposed to all the wonderful mysteries of the universe. If you'd like to pay him a visit and say your goodbyes, please do so soon while you still can. He's been staying at the VAMC (Pt Loc: 1C-HPCU) near UPenn's Children hospital and across the street from the VA hospital..ask for the hospice care unit. You can also reach out to me personally in a pm for advice, Ephream Amare.
