Flavorful and delicious. I would have to rate it as one of the best Ethiopian restaurants that we have found across the nation and we do search them out. Great job. I will return.

Wonderfully delicious, well priced and nice space. Fast service (at least for the vegetarian special).

The place looks very humble hole in the wall. But it feels like stepping into someone's home in Ethiopia. An older lady was preparing the food and presumably her daughter was acting as a hostess / server. The place was packed and seemed to be frequented by regulars as a number of patrons went out of their way to say... More

Same person that took our order made our food that was interesting and personal. Absolutely delicious. The food was very fresh, the owner had a lot of pride in his food it was great! The portions were to much to eat. Party of 8 we didn't even come close to finishing. The dining experience is very different you share a... More

Was somewhat questioning our decision to eat there as we entered through what appeared to be the kitchen. Surprise! Absolutely great service and food. Prices very reasonable, especially for the Denver metro area. Definitely one of those treasures we all look for.

We ordered 3 meals for 3 of us and everything was perfect. We cleaned out the 30" dish. The service is slow, as there is one cook and one server (it was busy on a Friday). We got our food 45 min after we walked in. Would go back any time. Loved it.

Great food (ordered the combo 1 and beers), tremendous atmosphere. Touch of ancient history. Waiter was great. 4 of us shared with sour dough bread, 1st time Ethiopian, will go back

Very delicious food at a good price. Only two folks working on a Monday night so super slow but friendly service. Cash only. Good for a slow relaxing dinner.

It was an impressive experience. Spices are impressive. Staff is super friendly. Ambiance is not so good but this is not a place for fine dining.

As a person who knows east African food quite well, I was VERY happy to find the Ethiopian Restaurant. It is a small café (no credit cards) owned by a wonderful family. I took an African friend who had never had this food before and she loved it. I love this food and it was so good to have it... More
