Authentic Ethiopian food. I have been to Addis Ababa and this is the same. The owner Tigi is from Ethiopia and she cooks for Ethiopians. The food is so good that Ethiopians go there which is a great sign!!!! HIGHLY recommend Tigi's!!!!

This is a great place to take vegetarians, vegans, and those who follow a gluten-free diet. The food is delicious. We usually get the veggie combination platter, which allows you to sample each of the vegetable dishes. My favorites are the yellow lentils and pumpkin....More

Homely food, meant to be enjoyed with company. Decor is minimal, but that does not take away from the very colorful and appetizing platters of injera's and side dishes. Tasty vegetarian choices. Non veg dishes are well prepared. Do ask for chilli sauce if you...More
