It's been long since the last time I had Ethiopian food. Went here after all the raving reviews. Was kinda disappointing. There was hardly any flavor! I have no idea what every one is talking about. I've had better. The coffee served wasn't great either....More

Food is always fresh and delicious. very healthy, feel good food. It's an explosion of East African flavors. The flare of presentation is representative of their culture.

Most think this is the best in town. My lunch today was excellent. I had Awaze Tibs, braised beef spiced with the ubiquitous berber powder. I ordered off menu but the buffet looked great, particularly if you want a variety of dishes.

We went here with a group of friends, about 12 of us, and the Gojo took good care of us. The menu is authentic Ethiopian and you can pick you level of heat. There is meat or you can go vegan. The spices are aromatic...More

First and foremost the food here was great tasting. We've looked long and hard to find injera that is just a touch sour which we suspect is more traditional and tasty. Also we always eat vegetarian and always get the vegetarian sampler platter. We loved...More

you might want to look at their menu online but I can't think of anything that would have gluten in it. Their bread is unleavened
