I'm a huge fan of Ethiopian food, and I've been to many Ethiopian restaurants. This place is EASILY better than anything in Utah, and is even better than the highest-rated Ethiopian places I've been to in NYC and Europe. Its location is a little off...More

We arrived at 6 to an empty restaurant. The TV was blaring, but the woman at the counter signaled us to sit (she clearly didn't speak English). We waited for about 20 minutes and were about to leave when another woman came up front to...More
