"The food is amazing! Best Ethiopian food I have ever had and I've lived in Ethiopia. If you are not sure what to order, Niama and Abba can walk u through it, but my recommendation is start with the Sambusa, then DoroWat (spicy chicken stew) and the vegetation sampler. We have been faithful patrons since Amherst and Grant, but love the new location! Great people running a great restaurant."
