I usually order the same thing whenever I visit an Ethiopian restaurant. The vegetarian platter which basically encompasses a sampling of all the veggie dishes. An extra injera bread accompanied the platter. The platter was very good - not the best I've had; but still...More

Terrible place. Have been eating Ethiopian food my whole life and this is one of the worst experience I ever had. Terrible service and the food came in small portions and didn't taste anything. Would definitely not recommend this to anyone seeking an Ethiopian food...More

Best Ethiopian in NYC, hands down! I wish they delivered to NJ. Would order everyday! We are Ethiopian buffs and we are so happy to have found this place. Sometimes the food can be not-as-awesome as it could be, as if they reheated the dish...More

A small long lobby that seems to be set in the 70's, the entrance at one end and the wash basin at the other, fronting the restroom. This is what you see when you locate this restaurant under an equally insignificant board. We had gone...More

We love Ethiopian food and hate crowds so this was a perfect choice! It's away from the touristy area but an easy walk to Broadway's theater district. We combined two combos and then realized that two of the dishes were on both. However, there wasn't...More

Very good food. Wine bar. Single toilet almost in the kitchen. Friendly staff. Reasonable prices. Near to comedy clubs.

If you're looking for something new and love spicy food, you must go there! Good food, attention, portions and atmosphere. You don't eat with cutlery, just your hands and a "tortilla".

Walked in around 12:30pm on a Saturday, the place was empty, which made us a bit nervous but the A rating posted at the door and the aroma enticed us to go in, and we were not disappointed. We shared the vegetable combo which was...More
