I've been a few times to this resto and like it a lot. Food is a bit heavy (well, the bread you eat with is heavy but that's part of the experience!). They offer many vegetarian options.

We came here to take dinner and after an hour waiting they say they didn't have the plate we ordered. They treat us pretty poorly all the time. Never again!!

We were a party of two visiting this place. The experience was very nice. Food was good, and there was plenty of choices on the menu. Ethiopian food is special, and if haven't tried it you should do so. Service was good.
