Editorial Review – Honey wine washes down traditional Ethiopian spiced meats, stews and vegetarian options such as chickpeas, lentils and collard greens.
Good Ethiopian Food with a diner-like ambiance – It was strange to enter into an Ethiopian restaurant with the ambiance of an old diner ambiance. But, the food was super flavorful and delicious. I enjoyed the Ethio Tour with a friend of mine; however the tables are particulary wide, so it felt like we were sitting a bit far from each other. This didn't help the fact that we're eating off of the same plate with our hands. But, nonetheless....it was delicious!
I also had the Sambusa for an appetizer. It lacked flavor and felt like it had been made and deep fried hours before. I wasn't impressed by it at all.
The owner and server were both very kind, though the server was not aware when my water was out. She would only come if I asked her to refill my cup. She also didn't bring the check until I asked for it.
Delicious Ethiopian food and a friendly owner – Great food, fun to eat and a very friendly owner. The restaurant is huge! The owner said they book out the upstairs for parties sometimes. Also, be sure to try the Hakim Stout, it's delicious :-)
Great food with an all you can eat lunch buffet – Ethiopian food is a great change of pace. It is outside the normal dining experience and a welcome change. Food can be very spicy if desired but more mild versions are offered. Proprietors and cook were very eager to please. The location alongside a Super8 Motel is a little shabby, but the food was very pleasing.
Queen of Sheba – The food is unbelievably testy and the service is great. The portion is very generous also inexpensive and I highly recommended this restaurant especially for group dining since the restaurant is very big.
