I can't comment on the food because we didn't have any. Went on a Saturday night for dinner. There were a few open tables and we were brought right back. it was very hot, no AC. We sat for 20 minutes and weren't even greeted by a server, no water, nothing. I could understand if they were busy but there was staff going around bussing empty tables when there wasn't even anyone waiting for a seat, very poor service. Went to another Ethiopian place and had a great time.

I love this place -- I get take out every Friday - Lega Tibs - The Injira is so good (and keeps 'til the next day if you can't eat it all!)

New to ethiopian food but I LOVED this spicy dish and delicious honey drink. Would eat here again and again. Very ambient and authentic. Comfortable but not for the entirely timid.

The worst Ethiopian food. Simple fact. In this restaurant only serve five to seven percent Ethiopia n's if you look around there's about 5 Ethiopia n's restaurants In Boston area. most of the time when you go inside other restaurant there's about 50 to 60 percent Ethiopia n's.This tell you it doesn't matter what kind of ethnic restaurant it is. There own people don't like to eat there why should I eat there. It's shows food really really sucks. very disappointing try the other restaurants

The worest place to eat Ethiopian food!!! worest costumer service!! From my understanding They don't want Ethiopians to eat there, because the food is not real Ethiopian dish.

Friendly cook/server. Seemed like a one man show when we got there. We were a bit nervous about making it to a play, but it all worked out in the end. Relied on proprietor for for eating and ordering suggestions. It all worked out. Definitely a worthwhile experience. Very healthy seeming cuisine and full of interesting flavors.

Mostly a coffee house with some standard sandwich fare, Lucy also has several FANTASTIC ethiopian items on their very affordable, made to order menu. The chalkboard menu, full of fun factoids about Ethiopia, changes to offer regular customers a range of food over time. Potently flavorful, but not painfully spicy (though you can request a delicious homemade hot sauce if that's how you prefer it), most dishes come with spongy, slightly tangy injera bread to act as your primary eating utensil. They also have a room in the back where they offer elaborate Ethiopian coffee ceremonies. The owner and staff are so incredibly proud of what they do here, and they have every right to be. Fantastic hidden meal option in an area that is a surprising food desert when it comes to a quick, but real lunch
