I actually ordered food for take out and what a lifesaver it was. Being vegetarian, my options are always limited. The food here was fresh, cooked to order and full of flavor. Being stuck in a hotel room for the weekend, this was a welcome...More

This place is a small mom and pop business. They are very friendly. My wife and I arrived late lunch and we were the only ones there. The only negative I can say is that "The Major" needs a location change. It is not easy...More

This was my first experience with Ethiopian food and it was fantastic! The owner thoroughly explains everything and I learned so much during the visit.

Wow!! Really amazing food... when I pulled up though, having driven 2 hours for a dinner meeting, I almost changed the venue. It doesn't look great from the outside and the strip mall it's in looks even worse. Also, the name makes not sense. But,...More
