Hubby and I stopped here to try the Honey Wine, which we heard so much about. We also tried the Sambosa, which was really tasty a little kick to it, but great. You must stop by and tried the food. Cute atmosphere and good service. Very tentative.

We enjoyed lunch here one a Monday afternoon. It was not crowded and the service was great. Food was very yummy!

I have been coming here for years now and it has gotten better and has been consistent. Tasty food and a good price! Service is pleasant and helpful with providing food suggestions if needed.

My first Ethiopian meal. Starters were sambosas (same as samosas) tiny but quite enjoyable & the wonderfully named Timatim Fitfit : injera - a huge (15" diameter ?) flat pancake wrapped around various dressed salad - quite refreshing

With the main courses, we did not fare so well . Another huge pancake with both main courses arranged on it
The special tibs - lamb & peppers was good. The combo was very varied . Some of it extremely unattractive - like someone had placed dollops of vomit or worse around the pancake. (Just as well the restaurant was very dimly lit) Mostly it tasted ok
It was served with - you've guessed 2 extra pancakes.

Service was friendly & efficient

We eat Ethiopian food when we get the chance which isn't often enough. I found this place in Greenwich Village, saw the TripAdvisor sign, and decided to try it for dinner.
It was very crowded and there was a very noisy group right next to us which didn't make the atmosphere very good.
My daughters shared a vegetarian platter. The Miser Alech was a bit bland but the rest were very good. My partner and I love lamb tibs, so we had Special Tibs (lamb) and the waiter suggested Tibs Wat (beef). The lamb was very good though the beef average - not a lot of flavour. There was plenty of injera and my partner enjoyed his Ethiopian beer.
