This place is unassuming and simple with great good! Come with an open mind for the plastic cups, eating with your hands and super casual atmosphere. It's all about the food! Mike will make it any way you like and takes into consideration all your needs.

Really great food on a small hole in the wall restaurant. I had the Derho Kulwa which is chicken sauted with onions, jalapenos, tomatoes and garlic. I usually don't do hot stuff so I asked for the jalapenos to be skipped. Owner was really nice and the service was great.

This place looks creepy from the parking lot but it serves really wonderful food! Sit on the quiet patio and enjoy the large shared plates with friends (don't ask the owner for individual plates, it's just not how they do it). Service is not particularly friendly but it is very efficient. Recommended for foodies.

I first ate at Habesha while my car was getting washed a Pavilions car wash. I Googled for restaurants nearby and honestly thought Habesha was a sushi bar... I was pleasantly surprised. I had never eaten Ethiopian before and was impressed with the flavors and portion size. I've had chicken and lamb dishes and they are both excellent. They are... More

Well, not really a hole in the wall. This eatery is located at the very end of the shopping strip. I walked in and saw a nicely arranged tables and chairs with white cloth linens. They are hard to find these days specially for small owned eateries. The gentleman who greeted me is the owner. This is another beauty to... More

I have been here a couple of times for lunch (when I used to work in that area) and I enjoyed it very much. If I remember correct they do have a small beer selection along with regular lunch/dinner food; I think the beer is out of bottles, nothing on tap. Its Moracan/North African/middle eastern type of food, not ethiopian... More
