My husband and I enjoy going out with friends who either like Ethiopian or are up for new cuisines so that we can go to Lalibela. It's a gem in our town that we very much appreciate - satiating the palates of a vegan and a carnivore. Delicious, comfortable and great location.

I'd heard a lot of good things about this place and finally made a decision to go. Glad I did. Food was very different than anything I'd ever had, but it was all very good. The dish with the chicken legs is what everyone raves about, and for good reason -- very tasty and I'll definitely order this again next... More

This restaurant was unique and unlike any other restaurant in Mount Kisco. The menu was unknown to us, so we asked the server what they would recommend. I suggest going with an open mind and if you like a large portion, order a lot of food. We were not full after the meal, but we enjoyed the plates we ordered.... More

Tried out the restaurant having never had Ethiopian food. It was a good experience. Service was good - ambiance ok.

What a fun way to eat dinner! A variety of meat and vegetables served on the BIGGEST pancake, actually called injera, is the traditional Ethiopian way to eat. Yes they do have forks and knives if you so desire, but the injera is a fun way for kids to scoop up food. The owner always remembers us and the dinning... More

Very tasty meals served with traditional spongy Ethiopian bread (injera)--with plenty of bread refills. Prices are very reasonable if not downright cheap. Also, friendliness of staff is unparalleled in Westchester, NY. We come back quite often.

This was both a culinary and cultural experience. Ethiopian food is eaten differently than we traditionally do in the West. The staff will explain it to you. Suffice it to say that if you have to resort to the fork they give you - you failed. The cuisine is spicy but more varied and subtle than Indian, though it has... More

The meal was classic Ethiopian. Good for meat eaters and vegetarians. Tasty and fun. If you are unaccustomed to Ethiopian, do it now.

Eating at this restaurant was definitely an experience. The staple bread, made from a grain called teff, was something I had never tasted before, and although some of the dishes were not very different from other more widely available cuisines in the US, the experience on the whole was new and exciting. The staff were remarkably friendly and the atmosphere... More
