Met up with a nice bunch of friends who live in Paris so like a change in food style. It's not a very good representation of this style of food, but then in Paris you rarely get really good foreign-style food. The coffee was great, the share plate not especially interesting, and the wine pretty bad. Not very busy though... More

I have eaten at 3 Ethiopian restaurants in Paris (and at Rock en Seine), and this is without doubt the best of them! Great food, great flavor! High quality ingredients, and they bring extra injera if you need it. Yummy Ethiopian tea and coffee. Excellent meal for the price!
