I went here with my husband and my friend and her boyfriend. We went on a Saturday night at 630 pm. When we arrived it was not super busy, but soon after the restaurant filled up. It took us an hour to get a glass...More

Had it delivered, so disappointed :( I used to live in Ethiopia for 2 years and ate injera and wot on a daily basis. The flavours were off, too salty, not enough texture. Should have tried blue Nile I guess?! I couldn't even finish it....More

First time visit. Decor is rustic; lots of ethiopian-inspired qualities, including artwork, wall covering and paint. Music at a low volume, so nice background sound. Lighting a bit dim, but not too dark; subdued ambiance. Staff friendly. Ordered combo platter; decent amount of the three...More
