Never can go wrong with this authentic place. Service decent. We’ve been coming for years and sometimes it gets a little off BUT the food is always good! Shiro is the family favorite.

Really nice spot, if a bit Expat-y. Their servings are huge, flavourful, and well presented. If you haven't tried Ethiopian the style of using hands to eat with injera is an engaging and rewarding culinary experience. Service is sometimes a bit slow. I definitely recommend...More
