Delicious food and great atmosphere! Injera is pure teff and perfect. The Ziggni beef stew was really great, berbere and kibbeh flavors perfectly balanced with tender cubes of beef. Tej honey wine was a perfect compliment. Can’t wait to try the rest of the menu!

This was amazing. If you're looking for good food and a great social bonding eating experience this is your place. Also if you like eating at a local business this is a family own and ran restaurant.

This is a family owned business. The daughter, a high school freshman, makes baklava. The mom is the chef and her recipes are from her mother. It is a personalized experience with very nice people. We were the last ones to leave and rather than telling us to go, they said to take our time and lock up the restaurant when we want to go. Who does that? A kind family. Service: Dine in Meal type: Dinner Price per person: $30–50
