What a lovely little restaurant with such a friendly owner. The food is very good and very traditional and a great experience for people not familiar with African food. Thoroughly recommended

So great! We went cause a few friends recommended it to us and now I would most definitely recommend it to others. There are so many different options including lots of vegetarian choices as well. Also a 5 minute walk from Footscray train station!

We had a share plate and it was delicious and huge. We couldn't finish it. We quite enjoyed the Ethiopian beer too. The service was excellent. We loved our experience. No knives and forks, you eat with your hands. So authentic.
