My sister took me here and we had a good time. The bread is called: Injera, and apparently not made from flour. We had the vegetarian sampler, where the various "stews" were portioned on top of the Injera. There was a yellow one called: Yakik...More

First time eating Ethiopian food and loved it. We started with the vegetarian sampler plate and then a spicy beef plate. The beef was a bit overcooked but the veggie platter was delicious. The combinations of flavors and spices made it a delightful meal. I...More

The flavors off all the items on my sampler plate were rich and distinct, I enjoyed everything. The space felt really cozy and it was perfect for a cold winter evening out.

We were able to enjoy sitting outside on the patio for a last-of-season lunch. Having both the chicken and beef combination and a vegetable combo, we enjoyed the samples of many available dishes. Most were good, none spectacular, a few (surprisingly) downright bland. Service was...More
