I've been here a couple of times and it has always been very good. The spongy pancake thing with loads of different curries is amazing! Completely different from any other curry I've eaten and you just want to eat more and more! It just seems slightly overpriced for what you get but that's the only downside - the atmosphere and...

We've been many times and keep coming back. Very tasty food, eaten on lovely sour dough flat bread with friendly, laid back service. Good carbo loading, not one for the Atkins diet. Probably best to have one of the selections on the last page of the menu unless you particularly fancy something. Not great for fussy children though one of... More

The food is good and the staff are friendly and accommodating. The disappointment is that it was slightly overpriced (£90 for 3 people, with no alcohol or dessert) and the service was rushed for a not-busy evening. I'm not sure I'd go again with a small group. Perhaps it's better with lots of people. The coffee ceremony is fun, though!

The food is very interesting, as usual in the african cuisine you dip pieces of flat bread in the main dishes, without using cutlery. Different here the flatbread is replaced by injera a really peculiar pancake, served as plate itself and in rolls as fork/spoon. The chicken stew was excellent and well hot. Some of the other dishes could have... More

the food is always consistently excellent, we have never had a poor meal here service can be a bit frustrating but I put that down to cultural expectations rather than a who cares attitude! the staff (sisters and mum) always very friendly if not too rushed off their feet, I recommend this restaurant if you want delicious food and a...

From start to finish we felt we were having a real experience. The staff didn't make you feel silly by explaining the traditions such as the ceremonial coffee at the end; which by-the-way, I recommend. My only comment is everything seems to served on and with Ethiopian bread, which wasn't to my partners or my taste. However, the rest of... More

My Daughter and I arrived on a Friday night and stuck our head round the door to see if they had a table for 2. Not at the moment we were told could we come back in 20 mins. So glad we did. They found us a table and even though they were very busy the service was both friendly... More

The food here is very good and the service is genuine. We opted for a vegetarian meal and had seven different stews and more injera bread than you can possibly need. We tried a little honey wine and had a St George beer each. The food was delicious and the bread was wonderfully sour. We couldn't have been happier. The... More
