Return visit well worth it!

I came hungry and had to drag myself out happy and full. Every bit as good as last time and really fast service as always. I asked for a bit extra because I was starving! They gave me a lot extra and I devoured it as if it was my first meal of the week instead of my fourth for... read more

I intended to have a small late night snack the other night, so I though why not Ethiopian food? This being my first time having Ethiopian on the Danforth, I went to Rendez Vous. We were greeted and seated quickly, and got offered some hot spiced tea, which I highly recommend on a freezing night. As I am familiar with... More

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!
