Tasty Ethiopian food. Didn't love the tables because they were kind of hard to sit at. A few sketchy wires running around the place but didn't seem like a major problem. I didn't have any problem with the lighting and menu that is mentioned in a few other reviews. Waitress seemed a little shy or maybe lacking in English at... More

We made reservations to this place and did well, as the restaurant was pretty full. The personnel is very friendly. The service is a bit slow, but it did not bother us. We chose one plate of vegetables and one of meat. It came on one big platter with the delicious bread. We had leftover for lunch the next day.... More

I'm come back time and time again for this food. it is probably the best Ethiopian place around Toronto :P... but maybe I shouldn't say that since I don't' want it to be packed all the time.

I read the most recent reviews of this restaurant and decided to have my son's birthday supper there. When we arrived on a cold December Monday there were only a few people sitting by the bar. After a while we were given menus. I noticed in their beer menu the ale was called 'Ali' and the lager was called 'larger'.... More

I waited patiently for the end of the Toronto Film Festival to enjoy a meal at Torontos most highly rated Habesha (Ethiopian) restaurant. It was truly well worth the wait... I was greeted by a mellow moody space with a redish brown color scheme which set the mood for a great meal after such a busy week. I had Kitfo... More

There were a good number of people there on Sunday but we enjoyed great atmosphere and service. So glad for the owner and staff, and the food that never disappoints. Congrats to the lovely cook, you do a great job! We were lucky to have the whole family with you, great memories!

Wine list that doesn't accommodate . Tough beef . Cockroach on the wall . The worst part of the cockroach was the server's casual attitude . She pointed to the open front door with a patio and simply stated " it must have come from outside " . No apology and a very indifferent attitude . Yes ! We paid... More

If you like Ethiopian food, you cannot go wrong here. This is a great spot. We went on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was almost full. Nice and simple atmosphere. Good service. Food was amazing. We ordered 4 dishes between 3 of us and left absolutely stuffed. The Doro Wat was the best I have ever had. Drinks and... More
