Walia is a family owned restaurant located in the business and cultural center of the vibrant Village Center of South Orange, just one block East of the South Orange train station, at 11 Village Plaza, South Orange, NJ-07079 . There is also plenty of parking, around the restaurant.

Whether you go out for a nice family dinner, for a casual rendezvous with your friends and loved ones or for a special anniversary, we warmly welcome you and will work hard to meet your needs. We are confident you will enjoy our great Ethiopian meals and admire our quality service.

Walia serves a variety of delicious Ethiopian dishes, both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. Our vegetarian entrees include the well-known Ethiopian dish of Misr Watt, a mild sauce that is available either simmered and seasoned with turmeric and herbs (Misr Alicha Watt) or simmered and seasoned with moderate or hot berbere sauce (Misr Key Watt). Our non-vegeterian selections are rich with traditional Ethiopian flavors, including the unique and delicious Doro Watt, chicken leg stewed in berbere sauce flavored with seasoned butter and served with a hard-boiled egg. These varied and colorful sauces come, of course, meticulously spread out on the traditional Ethiopian bread, the Injera.
