    (1) Use the injara that lines the platter to pick up the meat & vegetables. Don't get filled up on the injara served on the side. (2) Ask for berberé awaze (sauce) if you need stronger spicier flavor.

    While the service was painfully slow (they really need to invest in a host(ess)), our waitress was super helpful and friendly and the food was delicious! Will absolutely return.

    There's lot parking! Use smaller portions of injera (bread) to scoop up food otherwise you will get full really fast.

    To get the full effect you must eat the bread. They will give you a fork if you ask, but it tastes different. Get the hot tea-it's awesome.

    Good for vegetarians. They just changed their meat menu and it's a bit pricier now.
