This was me and hubby’s first attempt at eating Ethiopian food. We arrive and the place was clean, the waiter was great and explained how to eat our dishes. Will visit again to become more familiar with this cuisine.

Fastest Ethiopian restaurant service I’ve ever experienced. Plenty of injera, lots of food, great seasoning, wonderful beet, tomato and onion salad. Had the Doro Wat and my wife had the veggie combo. Really good Ethiopian at very reasonable prices.
