We love Ethiopian food but we did not like what we were served here. The tibs were bad quality, lentils not tasty, small portions, and bad desinterested service. Ethiopian customers appear to be treated better service and food-wise.

The place is a bit shabby and sometimes noisy.
Service very good. Food definitely interesting, probably authentic Ethiopian, served very generously.

I had lunch with three other people there last Sunday, 8 July 2012, . The place is shabby, but maybe looks better at night as the atmosphere is more nightclub than restaurant and they do have live entertainment in the evening so maybe the food is a secondary consideration. Injera was good, but the rest of the meal was awful, tough meat, corn from a tin, wilted luttuce and the waitress was very distracted and really did not seem to care. We had to ask four times before we got water and she stood behind the bar, where there were no customers, and ignored us.

The food is among the best Ethiopian restaurants in GVA. The ratio price:quality is not bad but used to be better. However, the fact that even mid-week is full in the hidden location makes no wonder about overall quality.

I like east-african food and the way it is served, so this restaurant was definitely one to try. And indeed, it was exactly how I imagined it to be. Good atmosphere and the food was how I expected it. A big plate from which we all could grab food with our hands. The ethiopian beer is also very good. I definitely will come back here.
