Typical Ethiopian food, authentic and comforting. Staff was very nice and helpful. The restaurant has a full bar. We had the vegetarian combo and the lamb dish, I highly recommend the latter. Reasonable prices. Bathroom could use some cleaning.

A nicely decorated restaurant with warm and friendly people serving delicious Eritrean/Ethiopian food on their country's signature fermented and spongy teff bread called injera. I love getting the veg combo plate for the number of people we have and gorge with our hands and injera...More

My sister and brother-in -law took me there last week. We had a great meal, and I liked the Ethiopian Hony wine as it complemented the food. The injera was spongy and fresh and soaked up the beautiful flavours of the vegetarian and prawn dishes...More
