Definitelly worth trying, if you are in Neu Chatel...I have never eaten Etiopian food before and I really, really loved it. It has a very nice environment, either with 2 persons or with a big group. The stuff is really nice. Definitely recommended:o)

Great food and very friendly owner. Casual and relaxed. The injera is delicious and chickpea stew is exceptional. The coffee is also amazing, roasted in front of you and served with buttery popcorn.

Among the Ethiopian restaurants I went to, this is definately one of the best. Ordered an excellent vegetarian mix. The staff is really friendly, the waitress even proposed to give us a refill !
