“Cozy atmosphere; food ok, slow service but food seemed authentic Ethiopian.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

More of an adventure than anything else. Not your neighborhood McDonald's! Encouraged to eat with your hands instead of utensils, more traditional....

Worth a try, but I wouldn't make it a regular.

“ground-up bones served on injera”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Bone splinters in the food -- lots of them -- like someone had taken a mallet to the lamb chops. Attitudinizing server. Granted, there are no truly outstanding Ethiopian restaurants in Seattle. This one, however, is just awful beyond belief.

“Great place for dinner with friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2012

We used to go here from time to time with friends. It's perfect as the food is meant to be shared and you get a lot. We usually ordered the meat combo because it came with so much. The meat is good, sometimes a bit grisely though which is not something I am fond of, but the flavors are great. A great value if eating with two or more people.

“Has really gone downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2011

The Ethiopian wine tasted like cheap boxed wine. The meat dishes were all fat and bone with very little meat. It was not busy on a Saturday night, probably an indication that the food has really gone downhill.
