“Great food, amazing atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

I didn't know what to expect when I came here, but I was blown away by the food and the service! The owner Maya was the nicest lady I've ever met and her food was out of this world.

“Amazing service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We decided to try this restaurant after reading the reviews. We found the experience to be exceptional. I was nervous about ethiopian good, however they also have Mediterranean fare on the menu. The service and food were wonderful - highly recommend!

“Worth the experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

The location of the restaurant is charming and genius. There is a lot of foot traffic. The overall feel to the place was like being at someones home and the food was the same. The rosewater lemonade was ok, not a "wow." OVERALL, it was clean, food was delicious, nice location, and worth returning. They forgot we had dessert and almost forgot us. DEFINITELY go for the experience.

“Amazing place to eat and relax with an owner who radiates kindness.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to eat and explore different flavors and ways to eat. Not like any other place I've been. The food is wonderful and clearly prepared with lots of love. One of my favorite restaurants in town!

“Best Ethiopian food in my life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This is totally a gem in Colorado Springs.... tiny place but the warmth with what Maya (the owner) served us food was outstanding.... the food was delicious, I've never had a better Ethiopian food in my life! Everything we tasted here right from the rosewater lemonade to the Alecha was great & couldn't have been better....

There are very few things & places that remains with you for a long time & this sure is going to stay with me for a while. An absolute MUST GO!
