If you’re downtown RVA searching for authentic Ethiopian cuisine look no further. They have Ethiopian beer and coffee along with all of your favorite dishes. Order the shrimp tibs, simply delicious. Can’t beat the location and friendly service!

Went here with my family. Chicken Tibs was great as was the appetizers but my kids did not like the traditional bread. Place is nice but service was a little slow.
