Tried the Gosh combination plate since I had never had Ethiopian before. It was all good and the bread you eat with it unique and tasty. The restaurant was clean and pleasant. Great service.

My daughter found this great place on Yelp. We love Ethiopian food and were so happy to find this place in a small strip mall. The combination plate for 2 was a good value with more than enough food to share. Service was great and the food was wonderful! Highly recommend and will plan to visit when I'm in Knoxville... More

We are local and this restaurant is one of our favorites. The service is great and the food even better. I love the Dor Watt and the spicy iced tea. The lentil side dishes are some of the best I've eaten, even including my own cooking. As mentioned before the place is small , simple and clean. It is an... More

What a great little spot in Knoxville off the beaten path! Small, unassuming, neat-as-a-pin and clean. This family-owned restaurant serves up delicious Ethiopian cuisine that is wonderfully different from any other ethnic food you'll find in this area. All fresh ingredients, low fat, lots of vegan fare, wide range of spiciness to suit your taste. The spiced tea (hot or... More

Yummy food, clean restaurant, nice service! We were traveling from California and looking for healthy food. My hubby is vegetarian, so he enjoyed the lentil dishes and the variety of vegetarian options. My pre-teen sons who eat a lot loved the food and were stuffed! My older son who is a foodie enjoyed the combo plate with chicken, beef, lentils... More

We had an early dinner here on a Thursday evening, so the restaurant was pretty quiet. Their selection is not as big as I've seen at other Ethiopian restaurants, but was adequate. There were about 8 vegan items on the menu, plus the option to pick and choose from these items for a combo platter. Our host/waiter was happy to... More

We came here through the recommendation of a friend and ended up absolutely loving our meal here. Although we'd never really had Ethiopian food before, we got great tips for ordering from our waitress. Ordered the 3 person combo veggie platter ---which came with a 8 options including two different kinds of lentils (hot and mild) and two kinds of... More

This is a really amazing, small, family-owner restaurant. The food is excellently spiced (though I would not call it spicy). Roasted meats in sauce, vegetables and lentils which you eat by pinching together an amazing, flat, soft bread to get a bite. Everyone in our family loves this place.
