This is such a hidden gem. From the minute you walk in until you have your after dinner coffee and leave, you are treated like the only people in the restaurant. The aroma gets your stomach rumbling, and the food is delicious and savory, with exotic combinations of spices and lots of vegetables all eaten by hand, with Nan, a... More

My friend and I had dinner here. We sat in a screened porch and listened to relaxing music from Ethiopia. The appetizers came and we enjoyed lentils and spinach wrapped in a thin dough and deep fried. Then the main courses appeared. My friend enjoyed goat in a tasty sauce. I had a tangy chicken dish that was perfectly cooked.... More

In this land of cardboard flavored food, we found a restaurant with delicious and aromatic dishes. We walked in around 2:30pm on a weekday and had just missed their lunch buffet so not a busy day. Our waiter seated us on the covered and screened patio which still allowed the cool breeze and hearing birds chirping. We ordered the lentil... More

In laws took my husband and I here so I don't know what the prices are like but the food is amazing and the staff was wonderful. You don't get to use a fork or spoon which is traditional Ethiopian style so that was fun but difficult. We did the communal bowl thing which was nice. It was okay since... More

A surprisingly good restaurant - located, of all places in P'ville. The fare was excellent, and fun to eat off trays and by hand. The ambiance leaves something to be desired and somewhat noisy, but a good experience nontheless.

This restaurant was wonderful. Great food, great service and nice atmosphere. We had the vegetarian platter and it was unforgettable. Wish I knew how to cook some of this at home!

We came here to meet our niece and her husband. She is the vegan in the family and loves this restaurant near her house, but so does her meat-eating husband, so it seemed like the perfect place to meet. Ethiopian food is interesting just from a cultural standpoint. Other than for the appetizers and salad, they don't use utensils. We... More
