Delightful Ethiopian dinner tonight at an unpretentious restaurant in the old city section of Colorado Springs. The food was delicious and Mama Maya was the ultimate hostess. We can't wait to return!

Love the unique food. The service can be exceptional. The owner is a trip and can be fun or whatever she's in the mood for. But I've taken my wife there on dates several times. Never had bad food or anything. It's small and quaint....More

My brother in law married an Ethiopean, and we had traditional Injera before. We went there because we wanted some more of that stuff, and we weren't disappointed. First, the bad. The place is expensive and the portions are relatively small. However, the portions are...More
