Me and my sister had a wonderful time in that restaurant. Foods were delicious( this was the first time i've tried ethiopian food and i did not have high expectations) which made me surprised.

Excellent Ethiopian restaurant. The injera was fantastic and they do a good job with their vegetable options. The coffee after the meal was also quite good and the wait staff were very friendly.

Let's start out with what was positive about our experience: * Nice ambiance * Gorgeous, newly remodeled bathrooms * Amazing coffee in a clay pot (!) But that's all. The service was slow, but we expected that. The server was friendly, and he seemed to know his food menu, but he was either very inexperienced or just out of it.... More
