This restaurant is run by an Ethiopian couple who always provide excellent service. The food is always delicious and in huge portions. I especially like the chicken and rice, which can be made spicy or mild. However, I have never tried anything at this place that I did not like.

I read about this restaurant and took a gamble to check it out... Run by a husband-wife team who are super friendly & know how to cook. The Ethiopian bread is the best I've eaten. It is not fancy but great food & friendly service. Great place for vegetarians too.
