Great food in a fun atmosphere

Jonathan, July 7, 2019

I am no expert in Ethiopian cuisine, but the food was delicious and the atmosphere unique. We really enjoyed eating the variety of dishes from a central platter all served on Ethiopian bread without utensils. One of us is a vegan vegetarian and there were several options to pick from.

Deb, July 2, 2019

The lentil dish was bland but the collard greens, potatoes, and mixed veggies were nice. I would have liked more of the dark-colored injera bread instead of the white one that the waiter told me was wheat but I imagine was not. It's a sweet space but the acoustics are terrible. The pinot grigio was better than I expected.

Mary Beth, June 29, 2019

I love Ethiopian food and the place has such nice atmosphere! Ive already made loose plans to come back with a friend :)

Devon, June 28, 2019

I realized when I got here I’d been here before, but over a decade ago! So glad to have re-found it! Some of the best Ethiopian food in the Boston area - their mittin shiro wat and kitfo were especially delicious.
