Mmm... was delicious and such a great vegetarian variety !! Went with my picky 13 year old And we both loved it . The service was also just right - not neglectful nor intrusive. If vegetarian try the platter which allows you to sample a wide variety . We shared one with 2 people and ordered extra injira which worked out great. Would definitely go back on my next trip to The city .

Revisited this restaurant while in the neighborhood, and the food tasted good. The decor is still very basic, and the amount of meat (lamb or chicken) wasn't too much in our dishes, but overall I think the restaurant has improved.

We had the chicken tibs (chicken pieces with veggies), yebeg alecha (lamb in a tasty sauce), and a coconut pineapple cake which was good too. They were out of a couple of Ethiopian beers, but had another one not on the menu which was decent.

This is my second trip in two weeks to NYC for business and both times have made a point of coming bake to this amazing restaurant. Great food and service. The Tibs Wat and Samosas are outstanding. Try it and enjoy!

I been there several times and the food it’s been always great, the portion and good and you can always ask for milder preparation (normally it’s hot) close to port authority so it’s an easy and affordable option

We had an early dinner reservation for six on a Thursday. The restaurant is small but could easily seat the six of us. We ordered the Meskarum combo, the Vegetarian combo, the Meskarum tibs and the Special tibs. Getting our dinner took a bit of time but it was definitely worth it. The injera that came with the dishes was quite good and for six of us we needed to order a second batch. The two lamb tibs we ordered were absolutely delicious. The rest of the selection was also excellent. We all enjoyed finishing up the injera that the various tibs, wats and other items were served on. All the sauces seep into the injera.

Our only complaint was the noise level. The crowd noise combined with the loud Ethiopian music made it difficult to converse.

We would definitely return for the wonderful food.
