“my first ever Ethiopian cuisine and its halal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

for a long time me and my hubby we were planning for Ethiopian Cuisine so one day all of a sudden we went to this place for our dinner. At first glance i really don't like the restaurant but the owner of the restaurant Sabrina is a nice lady she came and told us about the food and she said that she is the cook also . we had no idea about this cuisine that time so Sabrina helped us to select our food and the food we ordered came very quickly . Food was yummy and good in quantity . I love their food. Later on i have been to four Ethiopian cuisine but i don't like them that much as i liked Sabrinas . But frankly speaking as a foreigner i don't like the atmosphere at night .Maybe next time i will go for lunch . i would like to say that they need to improved their restaurant decoration and need to make it more nice .

“Better than Average”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The food was better than average. The staff friendly, but the service was slow. Very slow. Fortunately, we had a lot of time. The environment modest. For smokers, they have "sheesha." And they have a bar.

“amateur”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Despite a friendly staff and best efforts at interior, the experience was tainted by long waiting times and tv blasting in the livingroom/bar. The place is basically a house turned into a restaurant and it lacked professionalism. Only could pay cash or m-pesa.

“Great ambience, Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Nice and small restaurant, very cosy and food was good. Great for groups and just to hang out, you could even rent out the place if you have an event.

Well kept secret.
