What an awesome dining experience. The waitstaff was very friendly. The meal is served traditionally on INJERA, the traditional Ethiopian-Eritrea bread. It is delicious. My meal had 2 types of lentils, spinach, collard greens, a serving of Ye-Beg Wot, and a few other small helpings of various sides to try. The waitress explained what each was when she served us....

I think this place is great, I have been to several Ethiopian restaurants and make it at home and this place is by far my favorite in the city! Watch for their groupons!

We are in town for the weekend and stopped in. What a great place! The personal touch and fresh food made it a great pick. A must for anyone coming into town.

Ethiopian food is a very interesting and unique dining experience. It's a shame there are not more Ethiopian restaurants in this country. The unique dining experience of Ethiopian food is why this restaurant gets a four out of five. Injera is always great, and the way that one eats Ethiopian food is very different from almost all other cultures. The... More

I have been wanting to try an Ethiopian restaurant at home but have not made it there yet. While in Indianapolis, my wife found this one so we gave it a try. The restaurant is located in a low rent strip mall. The outside does not look good but do not let this deter you. The inside is nicely decorated... More

Dined here with spouse and friend for dinner. Greeted upon arrival. Sat in the "traditional" dining area (not at a western table and chairs). Ordered the beef combo for two (plenty food for the three of us and even a few leftovers). Nicely spiced, lean beef, delicious vegetables. In the beef combo you get three beef dishes and 8 vegetables.... More

What an enjoyable evening!!!!! This is true Ethiopian food prepared by a woman from Ethiopia. The restaurant is located in a small "strip" center on the southwest side of Indianapolis. The facility is very nice, tastefully decorated. When you enter the facility, you immediately smell the spices................a sign of authenticity!!! The menu is extensive................if you are with another couple, the... More

Dined here with spouse on a Groupon. Ordered the combo for two. 7 veggies plus meat dishes, served with injera bread. Finished the meal with coffee. Friendly and welcoming staff, delicious food! Had leftovers for the next day's lunch. Lots of fun to eat with your hands. BYO fork if you're not comfortable eating with your hands. Look forward to... More

We ate here on a groupon with a friend who really enjoys Ethiopian food. The food was very flavorful but seemed on the expensive side for the amount of food offered. The owner was very nice and the place has a nice atmosphere for being in a run-down strip mall. My husband left wanting to know when dinner was.

We could not have been happier with our meal and the service was excellent! Our server was the restaurant owner. He was very friendly and attentive. He altered one of the combo platters for my daughter and I, as we do not like spicy food. We only asked that he change two of the meats that were supposed to be... More
