Ambience is nice (could use more light inside). Food portion, though, is small. Not worth eating here outside of Dine Out.

went there for Dine Out in February and was impressed by the meal. While not a cheap restaurant, happy with the quality.

This is not the first time I've had African food, but it was the first time I was this disappointed. I have my favorite places in the various countries and cities I've lived and visited, but this is the first time I found each dish greasy, bland and just disappointing. Every dish from the different regions was subpar and the chicken used in the main Ethiopian dish we tried was almost inedible that the two of us could not bear to eat it. If the price wasn't so outrageous ($17.95 for a measly portion of questionable chicken!!!), I wouldn't have been as upset about the whole ordeal. If you want delicious (and reasonably priced) African food in Vancouver, go to Commercial Drive where there are two excellent restaurants somewhere around 4th Ave. If you are going to charge outrageous prices, at least use decent ingredients!
