“As good as NYC and SF!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

The food here is absolutely excellent and is actually as good as, if not better than the Ethiopian restaurants I've tried in New York and San Francisco. We go to this place all the time. Try the vegetarian platter...it's our favorite! The meat dishes are also excellent if you like rich, meaty dishes.

“A must visit!!!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Still AMAZING as always!!! Great flavors, quick service and food. Very friendly. We especially love the vegetarian combo and beef sambusa. Simply amazing treat for Sonoma County. A must experience! I'm so addicted that I have to go there at least monthly:)

“snotty owner,good service,okay food”
Reviewed July 31, 2008

I recently had lunch at this new ethiopian restaurant. While the waiter was decent and the place clean the demeanor of the owner was that of someone who looks down her nose at her own custemors. We ordered and when the order came out a little different then we thought the owner peaked around the curtain and looked at us like we were lepers then proceeded to yell at the staff in her language. Not very appealing for a nice friendly meal- but the food was good except for a little grisel in one of the dishes- I might go back if the owner stays behind those curtains.

“Exotic and delicious!”
Reviewed July 15, 2008

This is a a small pleasant restaurant east of downtown Santa Rosa which opened recently. Having previously enjoyed good Korean food in this spot and never having eaten Ethiopian-Eritrean cuisine, we gave it a try. We were absolutely smitten by the service, the delicious food, and the wonderful new (for us) experience of eating from the large platter of scrumptious dishes using pieces of injera bread. We'll be back.
