At Mahider, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant in Salt Lake City, we prepare and serve a variety of traditional Ethiopian dishes using recipes passed down through the generations in our family.

Since 2008, Mahider has treated SLC to a true cultural experience with our authentic Ethiopian cuisine. Our family has loved every second of it, and we’re looking forward to many more years ahead.


With fresh ingredients, beautiful presentation, and creative pairings, we transport guests to the very streets of Ethiopia.

Something For Everyone

Our head cook brings years of experience to our kitchen and combines traditional cooking methods with true Ethiopian ingredients to create rich, flavorful meals — and that includes plenty of vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options — just for you, our wonderful guests.
