This is my second trip in two weeks to NYC for business and both times have made a point of coming bake to this amazing restaurant. Great food and service. The Tibs Wat and Samosas are outstanding. Try it and enjoy!

I been there several times and the food it’s been always great, the portion and good and you can always ask for milder preparation (normally it’s hot) close to port authority so it’s an easy and affordable option

I usually order the same thing whenever I visit an Ethiopian restaurant. The vegetarian platter which basically encompasses a sampling of all the veggie dishes. An extra injera bread accompanied the platter. The platter was very good - not the best I've had; but still...More

Terrible place. Have been eating Ethiopian food my whole life and this is one of the worst experience I ever had. Terrible service and the food came in small portions and didn't taste anything. Would definitely not recommend this to anyone seeking an Ethiopian food...More

Best Ethiopian in NYC, hands down! I wish they delivered to NJ. Would order everyday! We are Ethiopian buffs and we are so happy to have found this place. Sometimes the food can be not-as-awesome as it could be, as if they reheated the dish...More
