Took forever to get 2 lukewarm vague injara plates. I still don't understand what was there to wait for over 25 minutes. Taste was not to my liking, but this is personal. Ah, and they assume you would like to eat with your hands, so a fork is upon request.

We had the Ingera Plate for two , the service is good, the atmosphere is authentic . Took a long tine for the food to arrive at our table . The food was very good but the size of the portions is very small. We left still hungry. Nice overall experience but don't come in too hungry :-)

The food was really flavourful and very different taste from that what I am used to. If you like to try new things and are bored with Arabic/Israeli/ Italian... food this is the best... More

When I started eating the food I felt like I was in an exotic country. Everything is so healthy and has different spices in it and just makes you feel good! The owner is super friendly and everything is so clean and looks good! Will definitely come again!

This small restaurant is a real gem for good ethnic vegetarian food. The owners are charming and the dishes are superb.

I love Ethiopian and Eritrean food, in London I ate practically every other week at Mosob and eat quite often in the little hole in the wall Eritrean restaurants in Neve Shaanan run by Eritrean refugees. A year ago I went to Tenat and was thoroughly disappointed, however, I met up with an Ethiopian friend who had heard good things... More

The staff was very friendly and answered very well, with a smile, to all my injera questions. I downloaded... More
