This was an awesome little Ethiopian cafe with the nicest service imaginable. Our waitress was very helpful in helping us order exactly what we wanted. And the food was amazing with hearty portions.

I accidently stopped by this restaurant and authentic Ethiopian food experience was good. Ambience here is pretty enjoyable too, but little bit problem with the service -there was only one person covering the whole restaurant table -.
