Our daughters have enjoy this Ethiopian restaurant for many years and we were happy to try it with the. Would definitely recommend the vegetarian platters, and fassil's choice with a great spicy beef dish. The portions were large.
It's a warm inviting place once inside, located on nondescript street with parking. Wish we had a chance to try more dishes ,but it's a small operation family run and most of their patrons were repeat customers . Good sign
As we've enjoyed this cuisine in other places, a little salad would be nice and appetizers. Probably hard to do. Will be back on our next visit

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. We went there in a group of 5. The owner (a very friendly and cheerful guy) came to our table and explained the food and favorites to us.
Later in the night, a group of people at the bar were grooving to some African music. My friend joined them, and all of a sudden, everyone there were dancing. It was definitely fun.
oh and by the way, food was great too!

Been looking around for an Ethiopian place. I'm not from there so i can't tell if it tastes like home, but It tastes pretty good.

Great Ethiopian food! Friendly server, delish food, good value. Will be back. Need to add more characters (ie words) but this place is so good, it does not need them.

We went to try Ethiopian food as an adventure.
The place was very clean. The manager was friendly.
However, I found Ethiopian food not that great to my taste ( if this is authentic representative of it ).
It would be nice if they could provide a spoon to scoop the food onto the crepe !
Portion was big enough ( to give you an ingestion ? haha ! ) Anyways, it's fine to try once.
