“Worth a visit for something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

We went here on Friday and had a very enjoyable dinner. The venue was a little quiet upon our arrival (19.30) but soon livened up. The service we received was extremely friendly if a tiny bit on the slow side. The food very nice and certainly the restaurant was filled with delightful smells throughout the time we dined. Add to this, a good beer and very reasonable bill and we would recommend a visit

“Not my cup of tea”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Some of the food is quite tasty, but as it's all the same consistency, the texture gets pretty boring. It's also quite cold as it is in little mounds on the platter and you pick it up with strips of cold dough. Slow service too

“Nice first experience of Eritrean cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Dined here with four others. The food was plentiful and enjoyed the honey wine. The service was great as was the 'coffee ceremony'. The final bill was very reasonable. All in all a successful evening

“Friendly atmosphere and tasty food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

3 of us had a bottle of wine, hummus dip to share and a mixed platter of Eritrean/Ethiopian food. We paid about £15 each and we're very happy with the meal but couldn't finish it as there was a lot!

The doro wot and tibs were delicious. And the injera tasted just like the real thing! The staff were very nice and the decor was modern and traditional at the same time. Would be even better if it was BYO!

“Absolutely brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I have been here many times in the last year with different friends and family and had my birthday dinner here in July with 24 friends. Every time we come here, the service is fantastic. The bubbly and friendly manager makes everyone feel welcome and really valued. The food is great, full of flavour, very decent sized portions and with great variety. There is something for everyone on the menu and the chef will cater for your spice preference! I took my parents here a few months ago and my mother normally hates foreign food, but even she got stuck it, ate with her hands and was really impressed. I'd absolutely recommend this to anyone looking for fantastic service, food, atmosphere and experience.
