My husband and I dropped in on a spur of the moment and enjoyed the hospitality and flavors of this Ethiopian restaurant. The serving bread is the best I have ever had!

I was traveling through and looking for a something a little different, and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing! I let my server know I had never been there before and she recommended a sample plate so I could get a taste of all their vegetarian dishes, all were equally yummy! I would highly recommend this place! I'm... More

I love to try foods from around the world in my travels, and here was another chance to do so. It is fun to have a taste of culture from across the globe, right in front of you. Two women were here, the owner and the chef. The food smelled great as it was being prepared. A plentiful amount came... More

I had never had this type of food in a restaurant before. We have friends from Chad so I know their food is delicious so I wanted to compare. I was not disappointed. It was delicious, the service was excellent, and it was definitely unique. Everyone should give this place a try!

I've been eating here since it was an actual market on the ground floor. I love the food. And the spiced tea... Really I have never left here feeling anything but stuffed and happy. The only down side is since you eat with your hands the smell stays with you and you want to come back almost immediately.

We arrived at 6 to an empty restaurant. The TV was blaring, but the woman at the counter signaled us to sit (she clearly didn't speak English). We waited for about 20 minutes and were about to leave when another woman came up front to help. She was able to turn the television down and take our order. It was... More

Our only disappointment with this dinner was the lack of patrons when we got there about 7 PM. Of course, that meant more and better attention to us! My suspicion, though, is that not enough people know about this culinary gem. It's worth the effort to get to its out of the way location. Pricing was very reasonable. We will... More

Scoping out the area near to our hotel, we were delighted to come across this African restaurant, and we're most intrigued about sampling authentic Ethiopian cuisine. The service provided was friendly and informative. We had some awareness of what to expect having read some of the prior reviews. We select a platter for two, which was a large sample selection...

I've been coming to this restaurant since it actually was a market that served food on the side. It is hands down my favorite place to eat in the Salt Lake Valley. The food is amazing. And if you get to know the staff they have some amazing stories. It's always a great experience here for myself and anyone I... More
