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

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

    Not the best service, but neither Is the other place across town. Food is better here.

    (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.

    They no longer take gift certificates - but it's not clearly marked.

    The service was beyond slow, and our waitress quite rude.

    Go to and buy a coupon for 1/2 off.

    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.

    Don't eat to much of the bread

    The brown lentil ravioli, the cabbage ravioli and the spicy beef ravioli are my favorite NOMs from the Ethiopian Ravioli Feast platter.
