Was fantastic all around. Food, service, atmosphere all top. You should make a reservation at least a week in advance as this place has a great reputation and is always busy. Crowd is a nice mix of 20 somethings and urbanites with kids. Outdoor seating in summer. Highly recommend!

We had humus for starter and a plate of various sauces served with injera pancakes. No cuttlery as you eat with your hands. We had some nice... More

It's something special to come here. We always make a reservation a few days before because everytime we are here there is no free seat. And you should decide if you want to sit on a chai or a pillow on the ground ;) The food is very good and tasty and you always get more of it as you... More

Sand on the floor, tables are low to the ground and space is tight. But the food is great. you eat with your hands. must have a reservation for this spot. Popping in doesn't work!
