The food was pretty darn good and filling. But, the general lack of decor, which allowed for wild echos as well as the stark lighting, detracted from the experience. That, coupled with the odd location in empty strip mall is kinda weird. Maybe 3.5 stars overall. But, we did like the food:
The food - 4.0 stars
Overall - very good! But, all of is was fairly cold. If hotter, it would have tasted better.
Red Lentils - 4.5 stars
Slightly underdone, but great spicy flavor.
Yellow Lentils - 4 stars
A great change of taste vs the red, with a very unique tangy flavor.
Cabbage - 4 stars
Fresh and tangy.
Green Beans - 4.0 stars
Delicious. Never had that served at Ethiopian restaurant before.
Salad - 3 stars
Pretty plain, but it was refreshing.
Injera Bread - 4 stars
More whole wheat-like (or Teff) in both color and texture. Quite good. The thicker version used on the tray was quite sour, almost too much.
PS - also, be prepared for a leisurely meal. They don't do a lot of rushing here.
