This place is in a little Ethiopian centric strip mall on a busy corner, with less than adequate parking and an almost run down looking inside and out. But if you can get past that, the food is really pretty good, and we fully recommend it. We had #28 and #33. The beef dish was better, but we enjoyed both,... More

Several years ago we traveled to Ethiopia and fell in love with their enjara played, this was exactly what we remembered. The waitress was super sweet and visited with us about our trip. Coffee was amazing and strong complete with that incense thingy:)

My wife and I had eaten at the other Ethiopian restaurants in the area (in this shopping center). We are Ethiopians and my wife is a chef in an Ethiopian cuisine in another state. This is by far the best vegetarian combo we had ever eaten in this area and one of the best I had had. They had two... More

I'm overwhelmed by this review, Menassie! It's very rewarding to hear that we could impress our fellow countrymen! It's especially wonderful to impress fellow CHEF countrymen. The vegetarian combo is our pride and joy and always a big hit. I'm very happy you enjoyed it. Please come visit us again! Take care, Samuel A More

Having seen the nearby Abbay Market on No Reservations and Andrew Zimmern's experience with a plate of dulet on Bizarre Foods, I figured I should avail myself to the Ethiopian food in the area. Glad I did! I've been here 4 or 5 times now, including twice with my wife. She can't stomach spicy foods, but says the tibs are... More

To be honest, we didn't eat here. My mother and I were meeting my husband and the smell of stale cigarette smoke was really strong. None of the patrons were currently smoking but it smelled like a dingy bar or pool hall! It'sa small restaurant so there was no escaping it. We read over a menu while we waited and... More

I'm sorry to hear you couldn't partake in any of our delicious food, Jen. I know it's been a while since you wrote this review, but I hope you'll come back again sometime soon to give us another shot. I can assure you that smoking is not and has never been tolerated in our restaurant. Best wishes, Samuel A More
