Unique restaurant. Busy but we were lucky they could accommodate us on a Friday night-we were there early. Loved the interior design of the restaurant. Very warm and interesting furnishings and tables/seating. The food is unique and very tasty. Reasonable price. Service was excellent. Would go back... read more

The food was really good. You share the food from a large tray placed in the centre of the dining table. Numerous Injera (spongy flat braed like a crepe ) are layered on a tray and topped with various spicy stews. You tear off pieces of Injera and dipping them into to the stews. Home-brewed Beer was served (Pembe).

The food is really good and the fact that everyone eats in the same dish with his hands brings some unusual ambiance to your meal. The decoration is also for something in that as you will be eating on a low table and have your feets in the sand. Prices of the food and drinks aren't really expensive. In addition,... More

Pairing with a couple of African beers to boot. Tasty Eritrean cuisine, good ambiance, music just at the right level to still have a lively discussion!

My friends and I went there on a Friday night and just as they tell you on their website we made reservations a few days ahead. It was my first time there and everybody said that the food is incredibly delicious and sooo different. So by the time we got there I expected something very extraordinary. To my disappointment it...

This was my second dinner at this restaurant. My first dinner was in April 2014 and I absolutely loved the food/drinks, ambiance, and service. I had the Momo & Red Sea to drink and we all shared the Meat Mixed Platter - delicious! I was in the area again in December and decided to choose this restaurant for my birthday... More

We came here looking for something a bit different and were lucky to get a table for two, without reservations) on a Friday evening. The decor set the tone for our experience: exotic (but not overdone), good food and good service. We ordered the sampler for two, which included two meat and three vegetable dishes plus a green salad, nicely... More

Nice, well prepared variety of foods with generous portions in a quite uniquely decorated restuarant. Not someplace for the unadventurous or parochial--yes part of the decor involves sand floors to give the idea of eating in a tent, yes the food is all served on real North African bread (which is REAL to a large potion of Africa), and yes...

If you would like to eat in sand and get some sand in your Food on the plate, this is a right place for you. My veggie humus was terrrible, the waiter not very friendly... The whole evening was a joke.
