Ethiopian is my favorite ethnic food but I would not say this was my favorite East African restaurant. I like it spicy and we ordered a mild combo and a sambusa appetizer. It was good but I wouldn't rave. I heard others around us very...More

The flavors are diverse and yet exceedingly complementary! Get ready to have your taste buds dazzled. Our meal looked like a cross between Indian cuisine and west Indian food however the flavor was from a different world altogether. Spicy but not tremendously hot, bold and...More

The food is absolutely delicious! There are vegan options, excellent coffee and desserts. You can get a platter and its enough food to share between two people. The atmosphere is very calm and inviting.

Are you looking for a truly unique food experience? If so, you have found the place. We had the meat and veggie combo. More than enough food for two. Be patient because each dish is created from scratch. Nice balance between spicy and sweet. Enjoy!

I never had this type of food before. My daughter is a vegan and I took her there. She showed me 'the ropes' about what to order. I do not even remember what I had - the thing that stood out was the unusual sponge-like...More
