“Worst service, barely average food, go elsewhere!!”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The restaurant was not very crowded, and we were a group of 8. However, we were told by the server that we could only speak to one person who could spoke english to take our orders. This ordering process took 30 minutes! With that out of the way, our food still took more than one hour. Other people walked out but we stuck with it just to judge the food itself. It was NOT worth the wait. The food was not good, only the lamb was passable but overall just a terrible experience. If you're looking for good Ethiopian food in Toronto, go elsewhere!

“Go to Narzareths and leave this place for me”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Queue for Nazareths was out the door (as usual) so we popped in here. Had the veggie platter for the 3 of us (2 adults and 1 child) Fab food. Only appears to be the one server but she was great, as she did not know us she tried to show my son how to eat the food with his hands but she was too late as he was demolishing the platter with gusto. Will be back. Shame I don't live closer.

“BEST ETHEOPIAN IN TORONTO!”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

Best service ever in the world! Makes you feel like you're a part of the family. For cheap date night, split a vegetarian platter, get beers and do the coffee ceremony (complete with fresh roasted beans and popcorn). Love this place. While everyone is lining up doors down from Nazareth, why not make the sensible choice and go for dinner at a truly special place?
