We enjoyed an excellent meal. They were very kid friendly. We were just in Ethiopia three months before. The music and decor and ambiance and, most importantly, the food made us feel like we were back there. It was an outstanding meal. We chose a...More

Don't be put off by the shabby, dusty exterior of the building. Inside, you're in Ethiopia amidst tasteful art and clean tables ready for seating. Each table holds a waterless hand sanitizer next to the napkin dispenser. Waited about 20 minutes for my meal to...More

We visited this restaurant on a family outing after reading a lot of high reviews. We started with the lentil sambusa and the cabbage/carrot sambusa. They came with two spicy dipping sauces. They were extremely delicious and hot and the best we have tasted at...More

Ethiopian food may be one of my favorites. So many things to try, all so flavorful. This is probably the best Ethiopian in the city, certainly the oldest. My wife and I went for the vegetarian combo and a meat combo, a lot of food...More

I actually ordered food for take out and what a lifesaver it was. Being vegetarian, my options are always limited. The food here was fresh, cooked to order and full of flavor. Being stuck in a hotel room for the weekend, this was a welcome...More

This place is a small mom and pop business. They are very friendly. My wife and I arrived late lunch and we were the only ones there. The only negative I can say is that "The Major" needs a location change. It is not easy...More
