The food was delicious and plentiful. The two of us could not finish the two dishes we ordered. We were with a third person who asked the server for a fork. She had been cold to us already and was really annoyed with this request....More

Great dinner with ample servings. Shared a scrumptious veggie combo and doro tibs. Excellent comfort food on a chilly night!

This was our first experience trying Ethiopian food. So good! We tried the Kitfo (raw meat), lamb tibs, and the vegetarian combination. The food and service was great and the restaurant was clean. Definitely gong back!

We have been here a number of times, and as usual had an excellent meal The food is very flavorful, spicy but not too hot, and the injera is great. Service is very nice- the server is always friendly and helpful.

Everything on the menu is amazing, the owner is usually on site will come out to check on you and will make suggestions. If you've never tried Ethiopian food this is the place to go. We've been going for 10+ years.

Great late afternoon lunch! Restaurant is normally bustling but we caught it at a great time and the waitstaff was very, very attentive. I shared a veggie combination and the food was fresh and delicious. The injera was on point! I'm stuffed and will definitely...More
