“Tasty food, good value, something just a little different”
Reviewed 9 May 2012

We have eaten in this restaurant every few months for years. This Ethiopian food consists of spiced and nicely flavoured chicken, meat and vegetable dishes - but not "really" spicy, less so than, for instance, most Indian restaurants. The best value is the meat and vegetable combo for two served on a large platter lined with Injera which is like a thick spongy crepe and is used to scoop up portions of each dish (cutlery is also provided). We often wash it down nicely with a cold Tusker beer or a bottle of South African red. VERY casual atmosphere.

“Authentic Ethiopian food across from the Rockway Gardens.”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

I've enjoyed this restaurant since it first opened in downtown Kitchener 15 years ago. The chef and owner is from Ethiopia/Eritrean and she can prepare some of the most delicious meals I've tried anywhere. I prefer the beef (gored gored, kitfo and zignie) together with the vegetarian dishes and all meals (well, all I've tried) are served on large Injira flatbread with a salad. Once in a while not everything on the menu is available, but there are always other delicious choices. Some are spicy and others are more mild. A coffee ceremony where the chef roasts and prepares Ethiopian coffee beans is a special occasional finish.

“Delicious food to share...”
Reviewed 14 January 2009

Delicious food to share with friends! Ask any of the friendly family who run the restaurant for explanations of the menu and recommendations. The platters are a good way to try several things at once and the African tea is a super follow-up to dinner.
