THE best Ethiopian Restaurant ever! For real.  Their injera bread has as slightly higher Teff (grain) mix, making it a bit nuttier--- and more delicious.  Except one item I had that was just too spicy for me personally, I have loved everything I've tried here.  I admit that I am a bit of a wimp when it comes to hot/spicy foods, and usually prefer mild-moderate.   Great place to go with a group of friends, family members or colleagues.  A larger group means that you're able to order more items to share.  The Ethiopian style of putting each one of the entrees & sides on a large circular injera bread encourages sharing & togetherness. Wash your hands before eating, as you tear off a piece of bread to scoop up your food in Ethiopia .  Along with ethnic music in the background, it is a real cultural immersion for an evening! Interior is Ethiopian, ethnic themed, with these rustic, heavy, wood-frame chairs. The wood is round,  log-like legs, back, & frame, but comfortable seat.  Not sure if that is typical Ethiopian or not, but it certainly adds to the ambiance.
Really enjoyed this place! Definitely a place we will be back! I have had Ethiopian food before but a friend hadn’t and he really enjoyed it! You aren’t served flatware (not sure if you can ask for a set) and there is a sink to wash your hands to make sure all hands are clean.
Best food ever!!! Love the Berebere dishes and all the veg options.
