Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So glad I found this place on Trip Advisor. Not your usual London tourist stop off but I would recommend a visit to anyone wanting to experience authentic Ethiopian foods. Family run, independent and small business. But they obviously cook and serve what they know...best and do it well. Thank you for the food. Thank you for the culinary and cultural lesson.More

I've been coming here for a few years, and was so glad to see they've reopened after renovation. The food and service was just as good as always, and the new place looks great. In recent visits I've had both the veggie set and meat...set, and both were delicious... and the goden tibs are something else. Definitely one of my favourites!More

Absolutely incredible place to eat, with a very unique vibe, we came in last week having never had Ethiopian food and left sure we're coming again! Food was great, make sure you try the lamb wings and the beef (number 5 i believe). Portions we're...very generous (we couldn't quite finish 😂), the set menus allowed you to trial a bunch of different dishes and the host was super welcoming and gave great recommendations. A must try in North London!More

Stumbled across this place when going to see the killers at Emirates. What a gem.. Amazing, authentic, plentiful food. Exceptionally good value (sharing veggie plate & 4 beers £43) and delightful staff. Don’t be put off by it’s slightly rustic appearance, it really was fantastic...:-)More

We used to come every month to this lovely local restaurant as the food is great and the owners are lovely. We decided to test again yesterday and the portions are half of what they used to be (the price is still unchanged…). Also card...terminal is sometimes a bit messy and you might have to go to the nearest atm to pay. I believe it will be our last time at this restaurant : too bad.More

First time eating at an Ethiopian restaurant, we will defo be back next time in London. The staff were all lovely and helpful, the place was busy with both locals and people who came for the first time because of reading reviews. It has an...informal restaurant feel which we liked. The meal was really affordable in my opinion, good value. We had the set menu for two with an extra dish - so glad we did - we were recommended the lamb ribs which were amazing. So amazing! To drink we had the Ethiopian lager, so smooth. Many people were having the honey wine, we are going to do that next time. Delicious.More
