It's restaurant is across the street from the Orleans hotel....I would rate this a lot higher if it wasn't for the server.....I've heard Ethiopian food was very different, unique, and you have to try. The food was such a different experience, first you eat with your hands, it's spicy, but not hot. I tried the same dishes as the previous reviews (not goin to try and spell it) but you get this flat spongy bread like I've never tried before, And kind of use it like tortilla....the smells were exciting, the atmosphere was really cool, and the have live Ethiopian music and dance, I think Tuesday and Thursday nights, which I was really hoping to see :( anyways if you like trying different styles and cultural foods you need to try this. Again the service kind of sucked but I would still recommend going or try another Ethiopian place which I think there are three in Vegas.

Wow - what a find this restaurant is!! We wandered in at 2 pm looking for lunch and came away with a tasty, spicy delicious find!! I ordered the doro wat, a red chicken stew, served on the sponge-like bread called anjeri (sp??). Fabulous - a great heat, unbelievable spices, great consistency. Enough chicken and it came with a hard boiled peeled egg in the middle!! My husband only wanted a salad, got the house salad and ate every morsel. It looked like they have live music probaby at dinner. The reason I gave it 4 of 5 stars was the service. It was only one cook and one server and I waited quite a while for the food. I think they just operate on slower time than me but I was starving. We will definitely come back - it's a quick car ride from the strip and worth the time.
