Brought a group of 8 here last Thursday. Six in the group had never tried Ethiopian food before. We had been previously and knew they'd enjoy the meal! We were seated in the larger dining room. Tiji, our hostess for the evening, was great! She explained the menu to everyone and patiently answered... read more

My first experience with Ethiopian & I can't stop thinking about it! I went last year during teacher training and hope to go again this weekend on the way to the airport. My fellow teacher friend & I tried every sample platter they had. The pepper tasting fresh bread is still in my head. I wish there was a place... More

I stopped by here with the family as we were in Atlanta and figured we only get so many opportunities for Ethiopian food. We stopped by early Saturday evening (6 or so) as the band was setting up. As we walked in we were wondering if they were open. They were. We were the only guests at the time. We... More

I've been a big fan of Ethiopian food from back when I lived in DC but haven't had any in a while. This restaurant wasn't the best Ethiopian food I have ever had but it was good. I had a bole combo which had a bit of everything and the portion was huge. The server was friendly but the service... More

I went to this location in March 2014 with a friend of mine from Kansas and we both had a good time. The server was very nice and we tried a nice selection of Ethiopian foods and a few drinks as well. If you go here, be ready for something different and I am sure this will not satisfy all... More

Since visiting Ethiopia in April, I have been looking for an authentic Ethiopian restaurant. I found a great one and in my neighborhood. First the hot tea with cinnamon was yummy. I loved the injera and lamb tibs. Finally I was having an early dinner solo and had a great conversation with the owner. She was so cool and personable.... More

This is a casual place, and service is relatively informal. My server did not speak much English, but we communicated what we needed to. All of the staff were very friendly. I tried the following dishes: - Ethiopian Beer: Good - Ethiopian Honey Wine: Sweet (as you can imagine) and good - A combination plate (with meat and selection of... More

Dined here with spouse-not our first time. Service is always attentive. They'll explain the menu to you if you're new. I love the fresh fruit juice! They do serve alcohol if you require it. Portions are large-do share! Lots of regulars (including taxi cab drivers) and we always enjoy our meal. Looking forward to going back in May!

We were checking for restaurants not too far from where we are staying and found this on Trip Advisor, The food was excellent and different, well we've had similar in London but you don't often get this type of food travelling in the Southern States of the USA! Actually they do also offer some Southern dishes, I picked up the... More
