“Food is excellent”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The food and atmosphere here is great. The prices are a bit high. I like the food a lot. For some, it may be spicy, but that is what Ethiopian food is supposed to be. Some "experts" don't consider it Ethiopian enough, whatever that means.

“Great food, but...”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The food is great. The Ethiopian meals on injera, the various sandwiches, the appetizers. Good beer selection. The service leaves a bit to be desired.

“Great Restaurant!”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Not familiar with Ethiopian Cuisine? No problem. Give this place a try and you just might be pleasantly surprised. Delightful flavors, fast friendly service and a very pleasant atmosphere. Harrisonburg is quickly becoming a dominant culinary destination in the Shenandoah Valley.

“Great value”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

This was the first time we have ever eaten Ethiopian cuisine, and we wanted to try it. Our family is vegetarian, so we enjoyed this. You eat with your hands, although they do provide silverware.The sour bread that came with the meal has a very unique flavor. I can't say that we enjoyed it as much as Indian cuisine - it just doesn't have the flavor & seasoning levels - but we cleaned our plates, and the value was very good.

“Sunday morning has limited food”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I went on a Sunday morning with family to discover that the menu consisted of all the standard American breakfast items. Therefore we opted for the lunch buffet which mostly consisted of lentils with one dish each of tofu, beef, and chicken. The food was good, and hope to go back when they have their regular menu.
