Good food and cozy ambiance. Meat platter for 2 with cabbage and an extra side of shiro made for a perfect Habesha feast!

Attentive server. Good food, served quickly. We like stopping in an Ethiopian place once in a while to eat without utensils.

After our visit in 2013, we came back this year, and did not regret it: took a combination plater, on top of the delicious n'djera, the typical Ethiopian sour flat bread. full recommend this small and great place.

Stopped while visiting relatives in Seattle. Very different food selections of African origen. We ordered platters and shared for a good selection of tastes. Food was fresh and hot. Recommended for something different.

This is my default go-to restaurant in Cap Hill. I like the no-frills, no wait in lines, no scope for disappointment aspect of this place and obviously the food. The food is so light and the place so chill, I always seem to be in the mood for it.

The food here is not bad. But we were so disappointed with the customer service, that we won't be going back here.

This restaurant is located on a semi-quiet street on Capital Hill in Seattle, Washington. Start your meal with an Ethiopian beer to get you in the mood. All of the food we had was delicious and authentic. Give it a try for something different.

Friends took us here for dinner during our visit to Seattle, and it was their first time having Ethiopian food, and it was great for them as well as for us. They are meat eaters and we are vegetarian and all were very pleased.

The best Ethiopian food in seattle, it's been around for over twenty years but still going strong, with great flavors , the vegetarian dishes are excellent and the Kitfo is also great, a recent renovation includes a nice wider patio.

What a jewel. We are visiting Seattle, living on capitol hill. Wanted a late dinner and tried this resturant "in a house". E When we walked in we understood it was for real. Etiopian people making etiopian atmosphere. Etiopian Beer. And Great etiopian food. At low price. We had a great night and want to come back and taste more... More
