What People are Saying

“Amazing Deal”

“The lunch buffet is an amazing deal for $7.99. They let me bring my 2-year-old and didn’t charge for her. The offerings change day to day so you could go every day and not get tired of the food. A great way to sample a variety of Ethiopian dishes with little risk, but if you’re like me you will probably like everything” Kelly H. Oakland,CA

“Fabulous food & flawless service”

“They had already closed but when we walked in the owner went out of his way to fix us up a huge combo plate! Really friendly, quality food in a traditional way. Highly recommend. ” Philip A. Glendel, AZ

“Another successful experience”

“This is my favorite Ethiopian restaurant. Their food is fantastic and serve great portions. I’m all for quality and portion size. Friendly staff. Overall, excellent experience every time! When you see many Ethiopians come here for lunch and dinner, then you know it must be good!.” Brenda W. Berkeley, CA
