Some of the best Ethiopian food I have eaten, pleasant seating with garden and safe parking. The dishes are quite generous, could be shared between 2.

Interesting place to have a huge flapjack with different kind of sauce. Some people may not find it tasty, but always good to try smth completely new. Place good for friends, family with children and groups of tourists.
