Husband took us newbies to this wonderful Ethiopian restaurant he found here on TripAdvisor. We got the Chefs platter and honey wine! The service was excellent and kept out water glasses full. She was very sweet and made our experience even better.

We hadn't been near an Ethiopian restaurant in awhile. This place hit the spot. Seemed like a number of regular customers were there.

We were looking for a good place to eat close by the hotel we stayed. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient . The food was excellent and decided to go back on our last night . My new favorite and a must stop if you enjoy fresh homemade cooking !!

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...
