The food here is decent enough if you like Ethiopian. Having said that, the service is not great even on it's best day. On a busy night, be prepared to wait 10-15 minutes before you are even greeted.

Typique but not very good and very expenssive. We don't like it it's bad restaurant. No service only old men.

Flavorful and delicious. I would have to rate it as one of the best Ethiopian restaurants that we have found across the nation and we do search them out. Great job. I will return.

Wonderfully delicious, well priced and nice space. Fast service (at least for the vegetarian special).

The place looks very humble hole in the wall. But it feels like stepping into someone's home in Ethiopia. An older lady was preparing the food and presumably her daughter was acting as a hostess / server. The place was packed and seemed to be...More

Was somewhat questioning our decision to eat there as we entered through what appeared to be the kitchen. Surprise! Absolutely great service and food. Prices very reasonable, especially for the Denver metro area. Definitely one of those treasures we all look for.

We ordered 3 meals for 3 of us and everything was perfect. We cleaned out the 30" dish. The service is slow, as there is one cook and one server (it was busy on a Friday). We got our food 45 min after we walked...More

Great food (ordered the combo 1 and beers), tremendous atmosphere. Touch of ancient history. Waiter was great. 4 of us shared with sour dough bread, 1st time Ethiopian, will go back

Very delicious food at a good price. Only two folks working on a Monday night so super slow but friendly service. Cash only. Good for a slow relaxing dinner.

I haven't eaten there in about 3 years, but it didn't have outdoor seating then and I don't think it has the capacity (given it's location) to develop it. That said, it's still the best Ethopian food I've had anywhere in... More
