The first time with this cuisine and I couldn't stop eating. Just brilliant food, ambiance and service.

First time eating Ethiopian food, so I can't speak for authenticity, but God was it delicious! My girlfriend and I are on vacation for our anniversary and our rule is exotic, exotic when we're out of town, so we tend to get adventurous. I cant remember all the names but everything complemented everything else, but our favorite items on the... More

All the reviews suggested that this place was excellent, but we did not think so. The service was good, but the food was quite average... I have much better Ethiopian food in Boston, NYC and Chicago.

Had really good experience at this restaurant. Hadn't tried different type of food for while. My earlier and only experience with Ethiopian restaurant wasn't all that great (another restaurant in San Diego). However, this one was outstanding. Great service and vegetarian friendly food. We liked pretty much everything that we tried.

If you like Indian and Middle Eastern food you'll love this. My second time at an Ethiopian restaurant and both have been a memorable experience. The mixed vegetable side was the best thing we had, can't remember what it was called!

I love this place! It's small (and can get busy and very noisy on the weekends - reserve a table outside if the weather is nice!), the staff are great, and the food is to die for. I love when we get visitors, because we always take them out here! Or for a birthday celebration, or for any other occasion... More

Very nice restaurant with good Ethiopian food. We enjoyed the beef and chickpeas. Did not save room for dessert.

My niece took us out for an adventure and I will never be the same. What a wonderful, flavorful departure for my Euro-centric palate. Hands-on dining in the North African style...I was surprised at how easily I took to it. Service was exceptional and enthusiastic. I think our waitress enjoyed our experience as much as we did. The food is... More

We ate here with friends, and enjoyed every tasty bite. Because we are foodies (translation big eaters) I thought this would barely be enough food, since it is family style. Silly me, I am almost ashamed that it looked like did not put a dent in the plate! I've never eaten with my hands at a restaurant before, but I... More

Definitely need reservation for dinner since the restaurant has limited capacity. Try having lunch there and you have the same great food without the wait. Try the vegetarian TCA, it is really flavorful. The beef stew reminds me of an Indonesian dish called beef rendang. Our waiter encouraged us to eat with our hands and taught us how to eat... More
