Went there on a Saturday about 3:00 p.m. and therefore avoided the lunch crowd so service was good. Unfortunately the buffet had just finished as well. They have a varied menu and Lia served us complete with a bright smile.

Ordered the Beef Tibbs - they have a plain version and a spicy version.
Lean beef chunks sautéed with tomatoes, bell peppers, and a special blend of garlic, ginger, onion, and other spices. Drizzled butter (optional).

Portions are big and we ended up with leftovers (for dinner).

There's a flat screen that continuously shows Ethiopian (MTV-like) videos of native singing and dancing, even rap and it was hard not to shake with the rhythm while eating!

Street parking only.
Restroom: clean and colorful

This was our second visit here and it was disappointing. The food was good. Did not care for the up charge for the lamb. The biggest issue was the service. Had to ask for our drinks 2x and refills were never offered. After our food came they servers never came back. I will not recommend this place and will not be returning.

We went here today for friends bday. I have been to other Ethopian place but i will surely say this was better one among those. We tried the veggie and n/veg platter. I personally like the chicken dishes so in the combo plate we got all the 3 chicken dishes that were in the menu with 2 veggies. The chicken was really well cooked and spices added to the taste. Salad served at side is also fresh with pinch of tanginess in it. The only thing to look for is that its in little shady place.:). As per some other reviews that i read one of it is true that water served is w/o ice - until you dont ask which is different from what you get in all the american resturants. If you are up for trying some new cuisine, this is good place to check. Enjoy.

Decided to give this spot a try to hear some spoken word poetry. The show was more than two hours late...I hear this is the norm, but the food and service were excellent! Had a dish with some sort of bread that looked like a rolled ace bandage. Dipping the warm soft bread into the gravy was wonderful! We also had a magnificent Vodka Red Velvet cake for dessert with Ethiopian coffee! Elysium! The coffee was laced with lemon peel...loved this! A definite must go!!

I was brought here by a friend and was surprised by the quality of food. I am a vegetarian so I chose the vegetarian combo which was so good and fresh! My fiends took lamb and chicken, they both were very satisfied. Portions are huge!! None of us could empty the plate.
The location itself is not great but food and service are great, that's all that matters.
