One if the best around from the injera bread to the savory. Dishes served. Some is the spices are quite potent so beware what you order. Prices are good and service is fine. Pretty authentic and conveniently love cared in a small space

I usually order the same thing whenever I visit an Ethiopian restaurant. The vegetarian platter which basically encompasses a sampling of all the veggie dishes. An extra injera bread accompanied the platter. The platter was very good - not the best I've had; but still...More

Terrible place. Have been eating Ethiopian food my whole life and this is one of the worst experience I ever had. Terrible service and the food came in small portions and didn't taste anything. Would definitely not recommend this to anyone seeking an Ethiopian food...More

If you're looking for something new and love spicy food, you must go there! Good food, attention, portions and atmosphere. You don't eat with cutlery, just your hands and a "tortilla".
