The food here is decent enough if you like Ethiopian. Having said that, the service is not great even on it's best day. On a busy night, be prepared to wait 10-15 minutes before you are even greeted.

Flavorful and delicious. I would have to rate it as one of the best Ethiopian restaurants that we have found across the nation and we do search them out. Great job. I will return.

The place looks very humble hole in the wall. But it feels like stepping into someone's home in Ethiopia. An older lady was preparing the food and presumably her daughter was acting as a hostess / server. The place was packed and seemed to be frequented by regulars as a number of patrons went out of their way to say... More

Was somewhat questioning our decision to eat there as we entered through what appeared to be the kitchen. Surprise! Absolutely great service and food. Prices very reasonable, especially for the Denver metro area. Definitely one of those treasures we all look for.

We ordered 3 meals for 3 of us and everything was perfect. We cleaned out the 30" dish. The service is slow, as there is one cook and one server (it was busy on a Friday). We got our food 45 min after we walked in. Would go back any time. Loved it.

Very delicious food at a good price. Only two folks working on a Monday night so super slow but friendly service. Cash only. Good for a slow relaxing dinner.
