This is a small family-run restaurant (as far as I can tell without doing any research at all). There were 3-4 other tables already seated ahead of us and our food took around 30-40 minutes to arrive. We had the vegetarian combo platter. It was...More

Tonight was our first time trying Ethiopian food and it was absolutely amazing. Between my wife and I, the vegetarian entree with a couple added sides and an extra piece of bread was more than enough to fill us. The food is very flavorful, and...More

The food here is decent enough if you like Ethiopian. Having said that, the service is not great even on it's best day. On a busy night, be prepared to wait 10-15 minutes before you are even greeted.

Flavorful and delicious. I would have to rate it as one of the best Ethiopian restaurants that we have found across the nation and we do search them out. Great job. I will return.

The place looks very humble hole in the wall. But it feels like stepping into someone's home in Ethiopia. An older lady was preparing the food and presumably her daughter was acting as a hostess / server. The place was packed and seemed to be...More

I haven't eaten there in about 3 years, but it didn't have outdoor seating then and I don't think it has the capacity (given it's location) to develop it. That said, it's still the best Ethopian food I've had anywhere in... More
