    The long wait leaves you craving each vegetarian platter that passes by. Its an easy introduction to Ethiopian cuisine that doesn't break the bank...two can eat comfortably and drink for $20

    Bit of a wait, but cheaper than Ethiopian House. Although, I can't decide if the food's better... really good atmosphere: can't go wrong with a beer, veggie platter, and meat tibs.

    Tibs / beef is the perfect choice for carnivores!

    Amazing food! Best vegie plate. Priced way under value. Try to go early as possible to avoid lines. PS waiting is worth it still

    Food is excellent and very reasonable. Don't expect first class anything and its always busy so be prepared to wait. Be nice to the servers and they'll be nice to you..

    Veg plate is cheapest in town.

    Lamb tibs is delicious! Ask for a side salad if you're craving fresh veggies.

    Cash only. They have one of those ATMs though.

    Don't waste time with a menu. Get the vegetarian platter(feeds 2) and if you're feeling adventurous or have a group of 3+ add on the veggie tibs. You won't regret it(See photo).

    Veg platter. All day. Every day. And if she's not too busy, order the traditional coffee - before you eat it comes after the meal.

    Best. Hands down.

    Excellent food. There will most likely be a line-up... So please, know what you want, order, consume and head out. This is not the place to have a two hour long dinner chit chat.

    Definitely worth the wait!

    Vegetarian platter is amazing. #3 bottles/$4 draughts of beer...don't order the wine, not good.

    I'm going to reinforce the Vegetarian platter- well worth the wait! I can't think of another place in the city where two people can walk away stuffed and slightly buzzed for $20.

    Meghann Osman · August 6, 2010

    Tip: get some beer. Only here will you find usually "premium" beers like Guinness and Alexander Keith's at a cheaper price than Labatt Blue. Two can dine and have a beer for under $20 including tip.

    Good food for a great price. I found the Injera bread a little too heavy and rich but I liked all of the vegetable fillings plus the Gori-Gori. I would return here.

    Vegetarian plate all the way!

    I've never had better ethiopian but plan to stay a while. Lines are always long and it can often take painfully long to get your bill. The $8 meal will make up for it (that's a veggie platter for 2)

    michelle campbell · June 16, 2010
  • Derek W.

    Some of the best food I've ever tasted in my life. Vegetarian platter FTW.

    Derek Watson · December 20, 2009
  • Omri T.

    Get there early to ensure not having to wait 30 minutes, there's always a lineup after 6:30 pm, best Ethiopian food in Toronto. The lady who runs the place will feed you if you're a newbie. Incredible
