Even before the meal, there is an extensive list of unique cocktails from which to choose. We tried a lychee pomegranate ginger martini and a balsamic-framboise martini, both of which were quite flavorful without any added syrup or sweetener. Having eaten at Ethiopian restaurants, I...More

Ate here with three friends. Lamb lollipops were great and nicely flavored. Sambusa appetizer spicy but a good thing. The menu is not strictly Ethiopian because the chef is French trained and there are also Italian dishes reflecting that country's influence in the region (look...More

For such a small, tucked away and unassuming place, we were pleasantly surprised by the warmth of the owner and how much time he spent talking to us about the menu and dishes. The robust and complimentary flavors were the highlight, along with delicate but...More

For years I've been dying to try Ethiopian food and was very happy to discover this place. I went there extremely hungry and left wishing I had gone to McDonalds. First thing I didn't like was the decor. Very plain and no character. The. second...More
