Inside the historic Flour Mill, this restaurant serves great Ethiopian food fast and friendly. Food is eaten without silverware unless request. I've been in many countries where this is the norm and am comfortable with it. Get out of your comfort zones! Try it!!! Drink order was taken and menu promptly supplied. Service was friendly. Besides the waiter, the presumed... More

I went with my family and a great time was had by all. The wonder explained everything on the menu and we had a great time eating with our hands and trying delicious Ethiopian food.

Oh, my goodness. The owner is a wonderful lady and greets you with a smile. The food is amazing and we have tasted most things on the menu. The atmosphere in the Flour Mill is great!

We were welcomed as a new guest and provided great recommendations on the menu. The owner shared the description of teff, a unique grain found in Ethopia and difficult to procure in the U.S. Nevertheless, we tried several vegetarian dishes on the lunch menu and a meat dish as well. We were filled and had enough left overs to complement... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner that was recommended to us. The owner is from Ethiopia and a very sweet lady. Her daughter was our waitress, she was a wonderful server. The food was delicious. It's a community style of dining. Your order comes on a big platter and everyone at your table shares. No utensils either which... More

The service was friendly, fast and knowledgeable. The lunch special was great, though I would've preferred less injera and more filling. An excellent value. The spicy dishes (with five pepper logos) were not really that spicy, but everything was flavorful and tasty. The dishes could have been served at a hotter temperature. The decor was pleasant and I liked the... More

My wife and I went here because it was recommended to us. The place is located in a historical flour mill, and is set up like a restaurant from Ethiopia. You can dine in the traditional Ethiopian side, or eat at tables. The food is brought out on a large platter, and everyone eats off of it. You do not... More

The atmosphere was pleasant and comfortable. The food was fantastic! We ordered the veg and the meat platters and there was certainly enough for four to eat "family style." If in the area again, this will be a must stop!

Perhaps we ordered wrong thing. But the lamb with tumeric and onion in small bowl with spongy teff-barley pancakes seemed overpriced. No utensils other than serving spoon. Supposed to put drippy butter lamb chunks in pancake to eat...and the grease ends up all over your hand. Finally server returned and requested a fork. No veggie side or salad. First experience...
