“Authentic, fresh, mouth watering great! But, it is all about the food not the atmosphere. Take out is the best option.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

We traveled throughout Ethiopia and have eaten many a homemade meal too. Plus we've been to most of the Ethiopian restaurants in the Twin Cities. From the too of the roof it to be proclaimed, "THIS IS THE BEST"!
There is a well worn path to their door trodden by the immigrant population. Beyond these customers, it seems virtually unknown. The place is a "hardly noticeable" attachment to a warehouse building. The focus here is all about the food! Fresh, lovingly prepared and proudly served with a smile.
The small interior is spartan with wobbly chairs, plastic table cloths and homeland music blaring from a boom box placed atop the oversized pop cooler. One of the many dishes we ordered was to include chicken legs. Without a blink she said the prep time would be an hour, so we skipped that dish. Once we arrived home and began to remove the container covers, we realized that we had ordered too much food which was not a problem because 3 couples had enough leftover to serve up the next day. All the selections were winners, but our favorite was diced chicken dish (sorry I can't recall the name). We will be back again and again.
