google told us to come here, and so we did. The meal was dee-licious. We highly recommend this lovely restaurant to all. We had a meaty vegetable-y variety that filled three of us up for $30.

The spicy lamb is served with sides of various lentils and vegetables on a local flatbread called injera. Perfect food for eating with fingers. Great way to share food. Certainly a different presentation from other cuisines. Food is very flavorful and service is good.
