    I thought this was absolutely fantastic. My first time to an Ethiopian restaurant so I wasn't really sure what to expect. Our waiter gave suggestions and they were perfect. Food was amazing!

    THE PEOPLE. The food is AN EASY 11.0 but that is only second to the most amazing people you'll ever meet. There might be a portal between our table and the seventh heaven.

    Easily the best Ethiopian restaurant in the city, and very friendly and helpful owners and staff; if going as a large group, call ahead and let them put the menu together

    Meals are served on freshly made injera bread and eaten with your fingers. Each entrée comes with three sides and a separate basket of injera use for scooping. Very veggie friendly. Read more
