We think we are quite cosmopolitan but Ethiopian food served on and with injera bread was a big success. It was a very different and exciting cuisine. We had a selection of three starters beef, shrimp and sambusa were a good introduction. We followed this...More

I share the opinion of other reviewers that the place does not resemble an ethnic restaurant. That is not bad by default except if you invite people to introduce them to that particular experience of Ethiopian cuisine. It lacks the opportunity of sharing a big...More

The setting is wonderful, the servers friendly and eager to help, the food delicious. Unless you have limitless capacity, best to skip the appetizer and order one of the main dishes. We shared two vegetarian entrees: Spinach and Rice with Vegetables and the Das Combination...More

The staff was great. Excellent service but we did not find anything special with regards to the food. Hopefully your experience will be different.
