We Visited this restaurant solely on the reviews on Tripadvisor, I'm so glad we did.
The warm personal welcome may have had as much to do with the mid afternoon time as the excellent hosting skills of the manager/owner.
We tried a selection of the dishes on offer, recommended by the host on our request.
We had a mixed vegetarian selection as a starter and two meat dishes as a main, don't be deceived by the portion size, it is delicious and very filling.
Along with the functional surroundings, the atmosphere was very relaxed helped along by a couple of Ethiopian beers.
Overall an excellent dining experience that we hope to repeat in the future.

This was the highlight of our trip. We heard about this restaurant through Trip advisor and decided to check it out. The restaurant is pretty close to the Caledonian underground station and was easy to find. It feels like you're having your meal at the owners house which is cosy! She is the most friendly woman ever and helped us picking our food. We chose 1 chicken dish, 1 lamb dish and 1 beef dish, 2 lnjeras (ethiopian flat bread), 4 beers and 2 cups of tea. Yes, we were very hungry! The food was just delicious and we would recommend this restaurant and experience to everyone! Altogether we paid 41 pounds! We hope more people find this hidden gem! It's definitely worth a visit.
Thank you wonderful wonderful lady! :)

This is such a perfect homely little restaurant, the owner always has time for you and has a great memory for her guests and she makes you feel very welcome The food is fantastic with great vegetarian choices as well as meat and fish. The restaurant is small and comfortable and clean and the prices are very reasonable. It's become a favourite of mine whenever I visit my daughter. I highly recommend it. I've taken visitors from all over three world there and everyone so far has thoroughly enjoyed it.

This was our first Ethiopian eating experience and it was delicious! I loved the flat breads and definitely want to return for more dishes. The proprietor explained the dishes to us and helped us choose what to have. Service was excellent. It is only a few minutes walk from Caledonian tube so fairly central and definitely easy to get to. They also had some good Ethiopian beers to drink and good music too.

Went here along with my wife. The service and atmosphere was outstanding and the food was excellent as well. I´d recommend some of the spicy dishes but be ready to get some really hot stuff. The price is very reasonable.
