This was my first try of Ethiopian food, it was tasty, good size on the portion, but the meat was a bit tough. But considering the price it was nice.

We went to this restaurant based on the reviews. The area has several ethnic restaurants, some which appear to have failed or are close to it. There were a couple of people smoking in the entrance waiting for their dinners. There are very few tables, and we could sit only where smoke was blowing in. The server told us we could seat ourselves and she would bring menus. She took quite a while to bring them. Frankly the smoke blowing in matched the ambiance - vinyl tablecloths in a dingy (but not romantic) room. Our final issue was the menu. We were expecting to order injera topped with several spicy vegetarian and meat choices, but the menu was almost all meat entrees with a side of injera. We did not get order but went around the corner to Mandalay. Delightful.

The food may justify a decent review but the atmosphere, menu, and service do not.

Stumbled on this restaurant tonight and was most impressed. Divine (spicy) flavours, extremely inexpensive, friendly and helpful staff and a good atmosphere. I wish we were in Bergen longer so we could try some more of the dishes.
