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

Scroll Down



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.

Ongoing from 4pm - 2am

(#Live at Pentridge Station!) We're approaching our final week of operations in this hidden neighborhood gem and the experience has certainly been worthwhile. We've made friends and created important neighborly relationships within this #CedarPark community. This just goes to show what happens when you open up another space that's open to all kinds of people. !!! Pentridge Station has been open everyday this month and will continue on until, next Saturday, the 23rd. It may be your last chance to comfortably enjoy food and drinks with a bunch friends outdoors. Don't miss out on this last of #summer opportunity. These photos by New Castro Camera Photography captures the last of Dr Thunder Karaoke @ Pentridge #beergarden. Look to our page for upcoming events and information. (FYI, we're celebrating our season finale on 9/23 which is also, co-founder, Ephream Amare 29th birthday!)

We do it big when we wrap up the end of the month because we also reserve last Saturdays for #Sofistifunk and it's 🔥🔥🔥×10. Every month with the ultimate mashup of djs, astounding vibes, and superb company. What more can you ask for other than good ethnic food thats served all night, well-crafted hookahs, and affordable drinks? Because we got all of that too 😉
