Three of us visited on a Thursday evening, dropped in on a recommendation and wow, we were not disappointed. Loved the set menu to share, the food was wonderful, lovely surroundings and the Ethiopian beer was also good.

Waited for ages to get our food. When it came it was a huge disappointment. The amount of food on the plate must have costs €3 at the most. I felt physically sick afterwards. AvoidMore
