Do not let Gosh's unassuming exterior fool you: this restaurant is clean, airy, and delicious. The staff is friendly and the food authentic. They also allow you to bring your own wine for a small fee! We loved it!

Tried the Gosh combination plate since I had never had Ethiopian before. It was all good and the bread you eat with it unique and tasty. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. Great service.
