Great food, lovely people, had a great family evening. Recommend the veggie selection (and no, I'm not a vegatarian!)
Value for money.

I read about this restaurant on the Hanover community page on Facebook and as very excited to try it!!!! It's BYO which is always a bonus. I had the gamen besiga - lamb and collard greens and it was so tasty. Real home cooking. I've never been to Ethiopia but my mum is Portuguese and have been brought up on delicious home cooking and this is a great example. I can't wait to come back and try the vege selection. I think they should do a meat selection too as people really want to try other things on the menu. I really hope that they do well. It's Saturday at 6pm and this place should be rammed. If you see this please spread the word. If you like relaxed dining with delicious and authentic food - you will love this. Ps the pic doesn't look great but honestly the flavour was so good

Popped in for a quick lunch a few weeks after they opened. Had the vegetarian selection between 2 of us - which was absolutely delicious. Each dish had its own unique flavour and lovely amount of spice and was great to eat authentically with no cutlery using the pancake to mop everything up.

Planning on heading back this weekend for dinner to try more deliciousness.

Dropped in here for lunch and had the vegetarian selection. Very yummy, authentic food. Exactly like what I had when in Ethiopia. Good service, very reasonably priced. Try this place - it's incredible!

At last - Ethiopian food in Brighton!
Went in for lunch about a week after they opened - had Awaze Tibs (spicy lamb stew) on injera and a cup of Ethiopian tea and it was delicious. Prices are very reasonable and the people running it are really nice. Café vibe. A massively welcome addition to Brighton's food scene - long may they flourish.
