Both times, we had the Combination Vegetarian Entree Sampler, a big plate covered with injera (Ethiopian bread) and multiple scoops of 6 different vegetable entrees, served with additional injera for picking up the food. The spices and flavors are complex, exotic, and amazing. A real treat for... More

When I asked how spicy the eggplant was, he brought me a taste. Wonderful, but too spicy for me. We had the Mushroom App and Spinach & Veg. main, that were exquisite. We also... More

On an exploration for a place to have dinner we passed by this restaurant . We did a quick on line check and it said inexpensive and good. The food itself was ok, kind of bland, and seems to focus on vegetarian items. We had the chicken speciality which was pricy and nothing special. Lemon sorbet dessert in a scooped... More
