I'm glad to have introduced my partner to Ethiopian food here. It was understated and the dark street outside could seem a little unnerving to NYC visitors but it was friendly and warn. The service was excellent with patient and knowledgable staff. The decor is...More

Food was very good, the service was great, the wine was just "OK," but that happens sometimes. In all, a nice quiet place to eat.
