This is beyond great Ethiopian, it's some of the best food in the North Bay! If you're familiar with Ethiopian food already, you'll love it. The service is wonderful and atmosphere is very casual, but still feels special and cozy. And, the food is great!...More

The food and service were great each time we visited. The vegetarian combination plate is everything you'd want it to be (and I hear that the meat dishes are equally pleasing). Every appetizer we ordered was flavorful. Not spicy but they will adjust as needed.

I had never had Ethiopian until I tried this place and now I am hooked. I love the vegetarian sampler. I don't do spicy AT ALL and they will substitute more of the non-spicy dishes for the ones I can't eat. They can accommodate gluten...More

I was in the US visiting friends that we'd made while working in Uganda. We had a lovely Ethiopian restaurant that we used to visit regularly. We wanted to rekindle some of our Ugandan memories so sort out this restaurant & it was completely worth...More

First, I love Ethiopian food. It's not common, so when I have the chance to have some, I jump at the chance. With so many great reviews, I hoped we were in for a good meal. And, we were so happy. Food was excellent -...More

I love eating here. The food is homey and comforting. The veggie combo and Abyssinia combo are both delicious and offer a wide variety of dishes to try. The injera is really a treat as are the greens. The seasonings are unique. Very kind people...More

This place is where we always go when we head to Santa Rosa. My husband likes the beef tartare and I get the vegan sampler platter. Plenty of food for a great price. While we find that sometimes the flavors pop more intensely than others,...More
