Nice, friendly restaurant with great food. Food servings are generous. The place is small, so go early or maybe find yourself sharing.

Coming here feels like you have crashed a card game. Patron to busy with smoking to bother about your order or receiving your payment. Food fair enough, although too much spices; Ethiopian food can be full of taste also when it is not drowned in...More
