We had dinner here last night for the first time and very much enjoyed it. They serve a variety of beef, chicken, lamb and vegetarian dishes. We shared the spicy chicken and vegetarian plates and had more than enough food for two. Service by two young women was charming and gracious. A little work on the funky bathrooms would make...

Lovely range of vegetarian food, some spicy, some less spicy. Hot and Cold dishes were served on a huge communal piece of Ethiopian bread to share, (with unlimited extra bread available). It made for a lovely meal with a lot of variety. Very helpful and accommodating team who run the restaurant.

Very tasty buffet- especially the mushrooms and beans. Excellent value. You won't leave here hungry! Decorated colorfully. The place was not busy at all when we were there. I hope they have a lot of business.

Eating authentic Ethiopian food is a treat. Eating with your hands, no utensils. A cuisine where the vegetables are better than the meat (I do not say that lightly). This place does it perfect. If your looking for the real thing. Not fancy, not the best service (mediocre most of the time). That's not why I go here. It's because... More

This friendly and nicely decorated restaurant serves authentic Ethiopian dishes, with a great selection of vegetarian stuff. We were very satisfied with the food and the staff were friendly enough. Even the coffee was excellent! The only problem was the somewhat slow service. Maybe the restaurant was understaffed on that day. On the other hand, one also has to have... More

Here you eat with your fingers. You pick up your food with the spongy bread. Found these dishes wonderfully exotic. We enjoyed the vegetable combo along with the Yedoro chicken. These big portions could have fed three. We will definitely be back to explore Ethiopian cuisine.

Great food and reasonable pricing. Wonderful place to share a meal with friends. There was not one thing on the platter that was not tasty. Would go again in a minute!

Very nice place, excellent and friendly service, and delicious food. We tried both, the vegetarian and the meat combos. Both were excellent! Deliciously flavorful and plenty of food. We couldn't finish our orders, so lunch next day, another great meal! Also, the prices are very reasonable. The place is very clean and the music enhances the whole experience. Excellent choice,...

This is the second time visiting this restaurant. Both time the service was good and the food is delicious at a affordable price. They serve you with big portions. The restaurant itself is clean and well-kept. I would recommend to come here for a good hearty meal.

Food with . . . Groupon: pretty great deal. The deal we got comes with an appetizer, two entrees, a dessert and two glasses of wine. However I'll usually just ask for juice instead because I don't drink. This is not a problem for them. The food is always terrific. The meat is succulent, the vegetarian dishes are savory, and...
