The food is different and I like different things and experiences. The service is quite slow, so don't expect to be in and out, you might have to go and look for the one server a couple of times. The server is an older gentleman who is kind and witty, but slow and maybe a bit absent minded. So you need a little patients to eat here. As far as the food, I feel like it should have been explained a bit more once it was put on the table, we didn't know what was what and I didn't feel that everything that was in the description was on the plate. I felt like I would be hungry still after I ate, but boy was I fill and couldn't even finish the food. There are no forks, but he gave us a brief and funny tutorial on how to eat without the forks. Overall it was a okay experience with okay food.

Great Ethiopian food and friendly service! Regarding the comments about slow service, it's like a one man shop when I went...the person playing hostess, bartender, waiter and cook is all the same. Plus, the slower service is definitely expected when getting Ethiopian food...part of the culture and experience and different than our American fast paced eating experience! Just sit back, enjoy one of their Ethiopian beers, and relax :) the food is worth it!

Takes a very long serve time and place is a little congested. They are courteous though and the food is good.

This was my first time eating Ethiopian food and I loved the food at this restaurant. The food was very unique and is something I think everyone should try. (Also meat is halal) The server was also extremely kind. He explained to us all about Ethiopia's special flour and even let us go back into the kitchen to see how it was made. I will definitely be coming back here again! Overall, I think this restaurant could be very successful if it advertised a little differently and was in a better location.

Should have given zero just for the cause of time they have taken to took 58 mins to server an order when there is only 8 ppl in restaurant.. If you are planning to go have a starter in some other restaurant and then go to this place..

Waste of time to visit here. Worst service even with single digit customers.
