It looks nice, relative big size, very tasty, family owned(2 brother and one amazing cook mother), low/medium price (70 -> 200 sek), fast service with a smile. What more do you want?! I'm impressed!

This is certainly a place i would recommend to someone who wants to explore something new and who is unfamiliar with Ethiopian cuisine. A very charming atmosphere and nice staff. And the dessert was a solid 10/10.
