This restaurant serves excellent Ethiopian food. Its best of you order ahead and have an idea of the kind of food you want to eat. Atmosphere is not typical western, but the place is African so fairly laid back. Very good food!

I have been going to AM since they opened in downtown Kitchener. I have always enjoyed the food. Their new location is on King Street East in the old Rockway Fish and Chips location. The food is always tasty and fresh.
