It seems to be the place Ethiopians in Orlando come to eat and bring friends to experience some of their home cooking and culture. Staff was friendly. The waitress suggested the meat sampler of which I enjoyed most the spicy beef and chicken portions. Those departed the most from US cooking. Of course, you get to experience eating with the...

The first thing my husband & I do when traveling is look up if there's an Ethiopian restaurant nearby. We've enjoyed quite a few in different cities. We found this one as is close to home as we can get. I love the Doro Alicha (Chicken) and my husband loves the Doro Wat (Chicken). We always get three sides: lik... More

Since we were in Orlando, we were looking for an Ethiopian restaurant and found this one. It took us a long time to get to it as it is on the busiest section of International drive, and traffic was stop and go for miles. But once there after battling stressful traffic, it was an oasis. We chose a family booth... More

My husband and I go here nearly every time we are in the Orlando I-Drive area. The food is incredible, the service is consistent and excellent, and the prices are extremely reasonable, especially for the area. The lamb specialties are exceptional.

My first experience with Ethiopian was at a fantastic restaurant in Louisville. I loved it so much I made it a mission to find one close to me. Luckily I moved to Orlando because in my previous city there was nothing to be found (shame on you Miami). Our go-to meal is as follows: Start with the Tomato Fit-Fit and... More

I had dinner at this place on 5/29/15 and I was so disappointed. This was the WORST Ethiopian food I have ever tasted. I have Ethiopian friends that I have had home cooked Ethiopian food from and I have also ate at restaurants where I live in Boston, MA and DC with amazing Ethiopian food. This place was just a...
