My husband and I spotted this as we were driving along Mass Ave and went in on a lark. We didn't really know what to expect, but we had an enjoyable experience. Dishes are prepared with the requested degree of spiciness and served on platters...More

This is a real fun journey in eating. They serve food on a big basket platter. The eating utensil is a delicious keff bread pancake that you use to scoop up the Ethiopian delicacies. Maybe even more impressive than the food are the absolutely beautiful...More
