Food is so delicious and the atmosphere is lovely. The service was very friendly and understanding of the fact that we were new to Ethiopian food. Don't be afraid to try something new! :)

Had a wonderful time and enjoyed the food. Great ethiopian taste. Try out "lega tibs" that was my favorite one.

Not the fanciest place, but the food was excellent. We had a combination of veggie and fish. Nice combination of spices. It was my friends first time having Ethiopoan food, and she loved it also. I will definitely return.
