Only my 2nd experience with Ethiopian foods but dang this is a good one. Wife and I had 'Sambusa' for an appetizer which has a Arabian flare to it then as the main course we opted for 'Doro Wot'. Great choices as we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A cinnamon/ginger tea was served on the house. Staff was informative and prices were reasonable. Try this place, you won't be disappointed.

One of my favorite food experiences in Chicago to date! Excellent authentic food and friendly staff, would recommend to anyone. A must try! Got the family platter and easily served 5 of us with leftovers.

Two entrees and 4 sides. Delicious. Tibs and Doro Wot. Excellent. If you had it before or want to try for first time, recommend Tesfa.
