We had the vegetarian combo with injera - it was delicious and good value. Friendly staff and a nice African decor in a converted residence.

We visited not long after they opened. My previous experience with African food was not great, but this was terrific. The ingredients were high quality and the seasonings delicate and balanced. Even our fussy eaters were very happy. The decor was bright and evocative of Africa, and the service was friendly and helpful, although because it was so new, the restaurant was almost empty. It won't be like that for long.
We will be back.

I loved this restaurant. Decor was nice and very clean. The food was excellent but if you are not comfortable eating with your fingers this place is not for you.

This brand new restaurant is off to a good start with nice, comfortable decor and pleasant service. It offers a menu that is fairly similar to other past and present African restaurants in Ottawa. The food was nicely presented with extra injira. Everythng tasted fresh, and the spicy red lentils were just spicy enough to be good without burning our faces off. I am a little concerned at how quiet it is and I hope it picks up, because it's a nice alternative to other similar restaurants in town that have lost their mojo with time. For those new to this type of food, it's really not that strange!
