WASS is a great cozy restaurant in Hamilton that provides awesome food and great selection. I am not a Vegetarian but ordered the Vegetable platter which has a selection of food (lentils, beets, lettuce etc). It was served in a timely fashion with awesome service.

I got to meet and talk a bit with the owner who was very friendly and from Ethiopia!

Overall I would suggest this restaurant for someone who is looking to venture out and try something new or for someone who is looking for some good Ethiopian food (or coffee!!)

Wass is the best Ethiopian restaurant in Southern Ontario. My criteria? Taste, portion, price, and atmosphere. I was in Toronto at an Ethiopian restaurant that was rated one of the top restaurants in the city by a reputable magazine. I found that Wass was far superior in all categories! At Wass, you can count on a friendly conversation with the owners, and you are always assured of a quality meal for an amazing price. I recommend this place to everyone! Wass could possibly be one of the best things about Hamilton!

Wass is a breath of fresh air among the Hamilton area restaurants. I can also say that it is probably the best Ethiopian restaurant among all of Toronto's Ethiopian places. The vegetarian choice is delicious and plentiful. The Vegetarian combo is big enough for two and the presentation of the dishes is lovely. The wait staff informs you of what is on your plate when they serve you, which is a great way to learn about what you are eating. The service is great and the honey wine is exquisite. I will go back again and again to Wass.

Just had a wonderful meal here! The vegetarian platter is fully vegan and absolutely wonderful. It has seven different dishes to sample that you eat with injera - a spongy almost sourdough tasting bread. Service was amazing - they took the time to explain everything and answer questions about ingredients. With limited vegan options in Hamilton, this was an excellent find. Highly recommend! (Non-veg options too for carnivorous friends)

I'd been to several ethiopian restaurants in the Toronto area in the past and really enjoyed them, so when I found out that Hamilton was getting it's own I was pretty excited. I've visited Wass several times now and have had a great experience each time, the food is spectacular and the owners are overwhelmingly welcoming and friendly- who needs Toronto! My friends and I usually order the vegetarian platter to share, plus some extra orders of our favourite dishes. Standouts for me are Keyser and Dinitch (beets and potatoes in turmeric sauce) and the Misir Alichah (lentil stew).

If you're a coffee lover, the coffee ceremony at the end of the meal is a must, it's sublime.

I cannot recommend this restaurant any more highly to people- vegans, vegetarians, omnivores, and spice lovers/phobics alike. I'm getting hungry just writing this. yum.

Everything is enjoyable about this restaurant. My husband and I moved to Hamilton from Kitchener and we really missed having an Ethopian restaurant. I have sampled all of the vegetarian dishes and they all have an abundance of flavor and are of great quality. I hope that the residents of Hamilton will support this restaurant as they are truly deserving. Prices are very fair.
