This restaurant and it's staff are all absolutely adorable! Simple yet tasteful ambiance, traditional music is in the background and just loud enough to hear it and still be able to hold a conversation with friends. The owners are very hands on, and LOVE to interact with their guests! They want you to have a true experience of Ethiopian food.... More

Its very close to my house. So i decided to give it a try. Turned out super good. It was bad like i thought. The ladies working there was very nice and polite. Injara was better than the other Ethiopian restaurant that i went. It'll taste better with your hand. No spoon. Will come back soon.

The staff is friendly, helpful, and super good with kids. We came with 3 girls between 6-10. Favorite dishes include: alicha siga wot #5, lamb tibbs #9, ye-missir wot #3 (red lentils), fesolia #2 (string beans & carrots), ater kik #5, and tikil gomem #4 (cabbage & potato). We definitely recommend to others.

Tasty and reasonably priced food. The restaurant owner is such a lovely person. Warm and genuine. She makes you feel like you're having a meal in her home.

Just one thing to say, get over your fear of different things and give this place a try. Great food and a large choice of vegetarian options!

Woinee makes each customer feel welcome and greets you as if you were a member of the family. The chicken doro wat is tender and the perfect level of spice. The lunch buffet has such variety and flavors. The decor allow a guest to have an artful dining experience for all the senses. Make the time for a leisurely lunch... More

I could not recommend this restaurant in stronger terms. The food was top notch, and I say this as an Ethiopian-American. We came to meet some family and were absolutely pampered, so much that we stayed for four hours! We ordered a selection of food and were given coffee, dessert, and appetisers at no extra cost! The shiro and wot... More

My friends and I wanted to get together to try something new. I picked Ethiopian. Only one of my friends had tried Ethiopian before. I was worried the food might be too spicy, but wanted to try it anyway. It was awesome. The staff was so friendly. They gave recommendations on what to order. We ended up getting a vegetarian...

Whether it's lamb tibbs or chicken or totally vegetarian, it's all available here, served either indoors or out on their screened in patio (surrounded by bushes giving a garden feeling). We always order a lot and take home half (they will give you extra injera -- the Ethiopian bread used to eat the food). Makes an inexpensive delicious relaxing evening.
