This was my first visit to this restaurant and had no idea how things worked. The waitress was very helpful. The Shrimp Wot was very good. I suggest after your meal you order the Coffee Celebration. They roast the bean and bring them out to the table for you to small and let them cool. Things run at a little... More

Kudos to Major, this restaurant is fantastic. My party started with the lentils sambussa, and then each ordered our own giant entrees; shrimp for him and mild lentils for me. This was our first visit so we were surprised when we saw the portions and definitely could have split a meal. But everything was so delicious. Do the coffee celebration... More

This was a great dining experience. The had a platter for two which included chicken, beef, and two types of lamb along with eight vegetables. The food is made to order and they can customize your preference for spiciness. We came in 30 minutes before closing time on a weekday and two more tables walked in after us. Needless to... More

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!

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
