This place is about good food, chef (and the owner and server at the same time) takes pride in her food and consistently delivers tasty dishes at reasonable prices while maintaining a bit direct and personal contact with customers.

Excellent food served and cooked by the warm and friendly owner, who went through the menu with us and made excellent recommendations. The decor is also great: a cosy, home-like dining area with lots of Ethiopian trinkets and wall hangings. Highly recommended!

Fantastic food at this family run restaurant. The meal was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend the large mixed dish. This restaurant is better than any other Ethiopian in North London. Booking recommended.
