My husband and I have been coming here for 6+ years and the food has always been consistently good. We've tried several dishes, but once we found our favorite, we started getting that each time. I get the Kei Wot and he gets the Gomen Wot (greens) and the egg sandwich (a bowl of scrambled eggs with injera on the... More

We had a very enjoyable time of food and fellowship with our Bible Study group today. Our host, Andu, was very accommodating. Our group of 12 pre-ordered, so our wait time was very short. Some dishes are very spicy, so when placing the order I requested "non-spicy, mild, or spicy", per each person's preference. We could also request gluten free... More

Gojo is a quick go to place for some good hearty Ethiopian food; the place is generally buzzing with life, and he owner is very helpful and quick wiyh the order. Their portion size seems to have decreased (boo hoo), but it's still just as mouth watering as it has always been.

We love this place. It is definitely one of our favorite places to eat. We are in love with their veggie combo dish... the lentils, collard greens and injera are top in our list. But if you rather have meat, check out their lamb or the chicken! The owners are delightful!

Wonderful place - family run, unpretentious, really, really good food, and phenomenal value. The Kitfo here (ground beef with spices) - raw - is my favorite. If you enjoy that (or even rare or medium rare), try the Gored Gored as well - cubes of beef in a hot oil. A little too hot for me on a regular occassion,... More

Where to begin....The yellow lentils, the beef in ginger sauce, the lamb with greens...my mouth is watering! You must try the honey wine as it compliments the spicy food. I'm also a huge fan of this place because they offer gluten free injera. Super friendly owners and fairly priced. This is a must!
