Basically we planned a trip to London around visiting this restaurant. My wife is a chef and had never tried Ethiopian food before. I was hesitant, but Im glad we ate here. The food is fantastic, different to anything Ive eaten before, but so tasty....More

Authentic Ethiopian food, it was one of the bests I had in London. Call and order as early as possible, because the food takes quite some time to arrive.

Great food and friendly service. My choice for birthday dinner with family and we weren’t disappointed - Grandma’s first experience with Ethiopian food was a success!

Great food and wonderful service. Highly recommended. We had the Veggie Combination and the platter was very big with so many options. We really enjoyed it.

Outside may not be the most attractive but inside was warm on a freezing cold day. Food was delicious, service couldn't be faulted! Every little extra to make you feel welcome. (Toilets clean plenty of paper, soap, hand dryer)

I booked this restaurant to try Ethiopian food because we'd not had it before. The staff were really helpful explaining what food was, the spice levels and the traditional way to eat the food. The food was lovely. I'm not sure what our dish was...More

If you want to try authentic Ethiopian cuisine, this place is for you! Very good, freshly prepared food, a friendly waitress (although her English is not the best so it might be difficult to communicate) and all at reasonable prices. For a very big platter...More
