I've lived in London for 20 years and eaten in most of the Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurants, this is a magnificent find! The food, hospitality and ambience are simply wonderful! I cannot recommend it enough! Please do pop in next time you're in Kentish Town:)

Loved this place, its small but the staff were so friendly. The food was really good and made a change from the normal indian/ chinese/ gastropub stuff. Really worth checking out!
