Ordered take out from here with my son. Lentils were delicious and the green beans and beets were fabulous. Didn't love the collards but my son did. Bread was also very good. We split a dinner and it was $20, a deal by New York standards!

If you're from small-town America, like us, chances are you've never sampled Ethiopian food. You've got some catching up to do. We ordered a combination meat-and-vegetables platter for four, and devoured every morsel. Both food and service were outstanding. And we didn't even miss our utensils.

Being a vegetarian, took their veggie platter which gave a good taster for their bread and various side dishes. Must try, especially if you love sampling other cuisines. Good service as well.

My first time eating Ethiopian food. You do use your hands, but they will give you a fork. I had the vegan sampler platter...it was spicy as in flavorful and so yummy. My three friends had meat samplers. ..they all loved their meals. Spicy as in flavorful with some heat. The waiter was super helpful in guiding you if you... More

Food good and different. Breads excellent. Perfect for after the movie across the street. Service is also accomadable but a bit of a wait for food.

My wife loves Ethiopian food so everything we travel (no Ethiopian in Miami) we try to pay a visit to an Ethiopian restaurant. This one didn't dissapoint. It's a small venue in what seemed like a basement but inside we were very pleased with the service and especially with the excellent meal which seemed to be well prepared, wholesome and... More

First of all, I wanted my title to be the eye catcher. Now, let me say, the place looks like a rat hole. And the service is slow. But the food is amazing and delicious! No wonder the Italians invaded it! And the price was not bad. When I go to a restaurant I want to leave full. I left... More

First of all, as the previous reviewer noted, this is an Ethiopian Restaurant, not a French one. There was a French restaurant called Quercy in this same spot that closed about two years ago. Some of the reviews for that establishment appear to be listed here. Ignore them. Next, Ethiopian food is not for everyone. It is spicy and all... More

Don't know why all the comments say it's a french restaurant. It is not! Totally ethiopian place and you eat with your hands. Quiet worth to take only vegetable meals - we tried few dishes and those vegetarians were better. Enjoy!

The food is good, the restaurant is clean and the service is good. They have an avocado salad that has jalapenos, onions and lime juice, it's soooo good. Everything is served with this weird spongy bread that's paper thin. It's part of the cultural dishes. But if you're looking to try a new ethnicity of food, this is a safe... More
