Asmara restaurant was founded by Kesete Yohannes in 1986 in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The restaurant’s mission is to provide traditional Eritrean and East African cuisine with a contemporary twist.
Asmara has become renowned for its authentic dishes designed to reflect the culture of East Africa. Kesete immigrated to the United States from Eritrea as an adult, bringing his knowledge of food preparation and hospitality with him.
He worked at several restaurants before opening his own place in 1986, immediately finding success due to the deliciousness of his recipes and the heartfelt approach he took toward customer service.
Today, Asmara remains a popular destination for locals looking for an evening out or people visiting Las Vegas who are interested in experiencing true Eritrean cuisine.
In the thirty-plus years since Asmara opened, it has become an integral part of the Las Vegas community and an example of what immigrants can bring to a city if given the opportunity.
Asmara is more than just a place to eat; it’s also a gathering place for locals who come together to enjoy delicious food and good company along with a great atmosphere.
