Great food and good customer service! The food was very flavorful. Plus, the in-house honey ginger lemonade was delicious. I look forward to a return visit.

The people running the place seem nice but right from the start, they seem discombobulated. They seemed confused about where they were going to seat us then once we were seated, the person took our order but forgot my drink order. Then it took about...More

Its in an inauspicious small converted house off a bustling corner in Portland, but appearances hide a great find for those who just can't get enough of the spice-infused cuisines of East Africa. The rooms break up the crowds and there's a table in a...More

After reading a glowing review of this place I had to try it. I've been eating Eritrean/Ethiopian food for 35 years, from Madison, WI to Seattle, from San Fransisco to Portland. I've even made my own berbere from scratch. So believe me when I say...More

This restaurant is amazing. Wonderful home cooked Ethiopian/Eritrean food prepared using authentic ingredients, some imported from Ethiopia. As much as enjoying the great food, we loved meeting members of this family owned restaurant with genunely gracious service. Not sure what to order? They listen to...More

This Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurant is absolutely excellent! The food was delicious and beautifully presented, eating with one's hands, rather than utensils. I had a lamb dish that was cooked to perfection and the spices used were outstanding. One of the best meals I've had...More

Only good thing about the restaurant was the ambience. Don't know where the other reviewers had Ethiopia food before. This one was the worst on my list. The sambosa was oily. 2 dollars for small piece. Ingera bread was cold. Lamb was tough. Won't be...More
