What a great restaurant! We've had Ethiopian food before and found it way too hot. This restaurant is willing to turn down the fire and the food was absolutely wonderful for both me, who doesn't like really hot food, and my husband, who does. We'll...More

We had heard good things about this place, so we drove an hour to check it out. Parking was challenging, but we got it done. The greeter (hostess) was shy, or perhaps there was a language barrier, or perhaps she was just bored and didn't...More

The restaurant is a large, well lit open space. We ordered Sambussas for a starter, the 6 vegetables with Injeera and 2 soft drinks which cost $32 without the tip. The six vegetarian dish consists of a nice selection of a mixture of curries and...More

Service was a bit slow (only one server when we were there), but the food was stunningly good. So many great flavors--really wonderful. And everything was more complex than I'd expected. I had Yebeg Alicha Wot, a lamb dish, with cabbage on the side. My...More

Went here with a bunch of friends. None of us had ever had Ethiopian food so the waiter/manager made suggestions and helped us order a variety of popular dishes. Ethiopian food is mostly stews and curry that you pick up with a naan style bread...More

Great service, excellent vegetarian options, and big portions. It was nice to have a local IPA (Stone) from the bar.

It was fun eating with our fingers and scooping up our food with the injera bread (which is gluten free). We shared a large platter for 4 people, with 3 meats ( lamb, chicken and beef) and 3 vegetable dishes. The food was spicy and...More
