We've been dining here for years and often take friends and Family for an introduction to Ethiopian cuisine. The owners /chefs prepare all meals and we've never had a disappointment. Guests dining with us enter fretful and leave delighted. This would be a great place to take vegetarians but meat eaters will not be disappointed. If uncertain ask the service... More

I absolutely adore Ethiopian cuisine! Had it ten major cities in the American lower 48... and nothing touches this place. Served up family platter style, their lentils are my favorite, but nothing on the menu is bad. However, take caution, as this is not exactly the best, well-kept secret in town...and they get extremely busys nights, and especially weekend nights.... More

This is such a cute little nook to go to. The steak and potatoes person should NOT go here. If you like to explore the untrodden with your palate, you will be amazed at the flavors you enjoy here. These folks really know how to make food go into orbit.

Not your everyday food. The food is excellent and the service is friendly. If you're not into an adventure ask for a fork.

Wonderful place, great food, especially the tilapia. Spicy, served on a large plate to share, forks available on request, but use the roll of Ethiopian bread!

Ethiopian food is special. It has interesting spices but not spicy. The injera bread adds a touch of taste to everything you eat. A health and balanced meal is easy to get. Strongly recommend.

Not super fancy but excellent food and service. My wife and I shared an appetizer with spinach and cottage cheese that was very good. Then we shared a vegetarian sampler for two which was also delicious. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The prices seem very reasonable. We are in Louisville for a short vacation but hope to get back... More

What can I say, I have only lived in Louisville for about 1 year, but this is still my favorite restaurant in town so far. Amazing lamb and veggie dishes and a friendly service. Although the facility might be nicer, the food easily gets my 5 stars.

Sambusa is similar to Indian Samosas.. :) Took me by surprise! We eat d same veg dishes every-time, never disappoints us. I recommend it to people who would love to try a different veg dish.....
