“A hidden gem!”
Review of Arif Cafe - CLOSED

Reviewed 2 August 2016 via mobile

Don't be fooled by the outside or inside appearance, the two menu items are delicious! I guess I can only really attest to the veggie platter, since I'm a vegetarian, but the kids aren't and they loved the beef tips. The sambusas were also delicious. Everything came out hot and fresh. I think most of their business is take out.

We were shocked when we were sat in some small room crowded with tables and chairs, and when the waitress/hostess/cook/cashier told us the two things on the menu (Veggie platter and beef tips). There were six of us, so we were unsure of how much to order. She said that each entree was a descent size, so we ordered one of each. We love Ethiopian food, so we asked about the veggie sambusas, (fried lentils) and she did have some. We were never given a menu (I don't think she has any). When the food came out, we were a little disappointed that she had placed it all on one plate (two of us are vegetarians), the meat was touching all of the veggies. We don't blame the waitress thought, we didn't tell her that we were vegetarians, and we were able to eat the outside portions of the veggie platter. The vegetarians didn't really leave full, but the kids had plenty of food, we had extra beef tips left. If we went back we would order more of the veggie platter, the food was really good, she just didn't know that we wouldn't eat the beef tips. She was great on bringing out extra injera, and the sambusas were really good also, they came out very hot. I have a feeling that most of her business is takeout. The seating room where we sat, was a small white room, that need a lot of cosmetic work. Overall, we really did like the food.
