Warmly greeted and well looked after. Food quality is good and very tasty. Try the sharing platters and the amber lager. You will not be disappointed.

This was a stop on our food tour. We would have never found it otherwise... it's tucked in a strip mall off of I-Drive and, truthfully, we had never had Ethiopian food and didn't even know what it is. We're sold. This is a new favorite. The place is clean, if not fancy. The service is fabulous... prompt, professional, and... More

Really nice atmosphere. Friendly staff. Delicious and very filling food. Everything nicely presented. Very relaxed atmosphere. Fun coffee ceremony too. No cutlery unless requested - which was also fun! Nice change from burgers etc. Would definitely return. Recommended.

I only wish there were more of these restaurants near my area of Florida. This is a great service experience for couples and families. If you are looking for healthy family style eats please stop here. The coffee is INCREDIBLE and you can never go wrong with the sambusas. I recommend trying this food, but please note some of the...

Went on a Tuesday night and were seated immediately. Each person in our party of four ordered something different, and we all tried the sambusas appetizer. The sambusas' flavor was good but a little dry overall. For our entrees, it was unanimous that there was not enough meat on any of them but least of all on the short ribs... More

Went with my boyfriend and it was great! I would suggest getting the meals on one plate or "family style" as it is an authentic experience. Great place to try something new! Service was helpful and friendly

Living in South Florida deprives us of any Ethiopian food. Whenever we travel North, we make a point to stop here for dinner. In April, we travelled by car to North Carolina and on the way back, we stopped here for our 5th dinner in a couple of years. I really think they are getting better and better. The restaurant...

We were really struggling with all the chain restaurants and the sheer amount of American fried and fatty food so felt like a god send when we stumbled on this little place! It's so pretty inside, very thoughtfully decorated and definitely very special - especially when compared to iDrive standards! The food was good too, recommend the mesir wot, and... More

A short ride for a great experience. A bit out of the way, but worth the trip. Excellent menu and service.
