My husband and I don’t eat out often so when we do we enjoy having an experience. This is a place we will visit again. Great food and we love the authentic flare of not eating with utensils. The owner was fun to talk to.

My wife and I tried this restaurant for the first time last week. We had the family platter, which provides a nice introduction to both Ethiopian cuisine and to this restaurant's menu options. Our service was excellent. This restaurant certainly is worth a visit.
