My wife and I tried this restaurant for the first time last week. We had the family platter, which provides a nice introduction to both Ethiopian cuisine and to this restaurant's menu options. Our service was excellent. This restaurant certainly is worth a visit.

The restaurant has new owners and cook and is much better than it used to be. I would recommend it highly. Also a good option if you are vegan or vegetarian.

This was a really unique experience. We went on a work lunch with a few people that knew what they were doing and all split. That was the way to go. I would not go back with just my husband and myself. Nor would I...More
