I have been coming to this restaurant for over 30 years. The owner and his wife hand prepare all the food and serve it with the care that they would direct family members. We most recently went to celebrate a birthday and see restaurant was...More

The food here is decent enough if you like Ethiopian. Having said that, the service is not great even on it's best day. On a busy night, be prepared to wait 10-15 minutes before you are even greeted.

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.

I haven't eaten there in about 3 years, but it didn't have outdoor seating then and I don't think it has the capacity (given it's location) to develop it. That said, it's still the best Ethopian food I've had anywhere in... More
