I understand that this restaurant serves Ethiopian food and I'm wondering if it is served at lunchtime? Does it serve injera and the various dishes that go with it in a traditional Ethiopian meal? Thanks, Alison

I was not aware that they serve traditional Ethiopian food with injera and sauces. I don't recall that being on their menu.
