We had a fulfilling and fabulous meal at Lucy's. Nice decor from the other Ethiopian restaurants we have been to - food was also very flavourful with lots of options on the menu.

It was the first time for us in an Ethiopian restaurant. The waitress help us a lot with the food and she had some details that were really professionals. The experience of eating with the hands was really good, and the food was amazing!
