I've driven by here many times. Finally went with a friend who loves the food. OMG. So so fantastic. We got the vegetarian sampler. Very unique experience. You eat with Ethiopian bread and share. Our waiter divided up the food so we each had our portions. He happened to be the owners son. What a wonderful place. I want to... More

30 years ago I was introduced to Ethiopian food and I have loved it ever since. I would eat injera every single day, if I could. The food here was delicious. We had the lunch buffet and tasted every single item. I wish the doro wot was much spicier, but I understand they have to cater to everybodys palate. If... More

I really did enjoy this place. However, there portions are pretty small and their price is pretty high. Not budget friendly but taste good.

Very good. We had the vegetarian sampler as a couple and for $20 we nearly exploded, we were so full. The spice pallet is mild but we ordered mild. The atmosphere is fantastic here. We were in a "Florida room" and it was pleasantly cool. It was quiet even with two large families in the other side of the restaurant.... More

I have to say some of my friends that I went with enjoyed the food, but it's not something I would ever try again. Nice presentation, small, but quaint place. We had the buffet and I would say the food was just ok and I paid than usual for lunch.

This place blew me away the first time I tried it. I eat there regularly now. Great food, excellent service. Not a fast food restaurant. If you are in a hurry, go to Taco Bell.

It is a surprise to find such a restaurant in Pflugerville TX. I have not counted tables, but I would guess at a capacity of less than 80. Meals are fresh and cooked to order. Lots of vegetarian and gluten free meals as well as lamb and chicken. Very tasty and you can request your amount of spicy heat. They... More

If you like experiencing sunbathing new, enjoy spicy foods, don't mind eating with your hands, and this includes our vegetarian friends, this is a great place. Over time, Ethiopian has become one of my favorite cuisines. They have different seasoning blends from other cuisines, and also a different type of bread. Get a combo plate. If you are vegetarian, so... More
