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...More

Straightforward, well spiced Ethiopian food! The menu offers a nice variety and I've had nothing that I dislike, though I've been several times. If you want it spicy, you can get it that way and/or adjust your heat level with the sauces available on the...More
