Really good food! Very generous portions. Super-friendly staff. At first, I was going to write "not much on atmosphere" - but that's not exactly true. The restaurant is not heavily decorated, but during my visit, the place was humming with native Ethiopians speaking several different languages. There was a soccer game on the TV, and the (mostly male) clientele were happily cheering on their teams while drinking delicious and crazy-strong coffee. [Side note: Ethiopia is where the coffee bean originated, and they've got the preparation and presentation nailed. Not for the meek, but a joy for coffee lovers! ] There is a traditional dining area with small, low tables and chairs - great for conversation and sharing food. There are also many Western tables, and a small outdoor seating area. I had the vegetarian sampler plate, and it was fantastic! Several different preparations of legumes ranging from very mild to deliciously spicy, a savory greens dish, and a rich potato-and-cabbage stew were all served together on a bed of injera - the soft sourdough flatbread that is somewhere between a pancake and a tortilla. As in most Ethiopian restaurants, the food is eaten by ripping off a piece of the injera, using it to pick up some food, and popping it into your mouth. No utensils. It's easy and fun. Just be aware. An excellent choice, both for the seasoned diner and the novice.
