Foursquare Tips

  • Great food, but super stingy on the injera! What's that about?
  • The Broken Windows Theory for restaurants does *not* apply. despite usually being full of open tables, the food is really awesome, especially the veggie combo w/Ethiopian flat bread and Awash Chicken.
  • Light switch for the bathroom is on the outside!
  • Among the city's better Ethiopian restaurants. Vegetables are great here, but the tartare is our favorite.
  • Complete remodel. Wow! Super hip now!
  • Oh yes, the veg combo is rocking! Try everything! I can't stop -)
  • Vegetarian combo is more varied than any other Ethiopian place I've been (and I've been at most of the Ethiopian restaurants in the city).
  • The Veg Combo piles include beets, red lentils, yellow split peas, cabbage, gomen (collards cooked with garlic and onion) and shiro (ground and spiced chickpeas) sitting atop injera (flatbread).
  • Yes, even though it looks closed from the outside, they're open. Food is better than the decor and lax service.
  • Very very tasty, the tibs and chicken are all perfectly spiced and savory.
  • Their platter with all the veggies is great! A little pricey but great place for dinner once a while
  • The special kitfo (ground steak tartare in seasoned butter) really is special, mixed w jalapeo = extra kick. Recommend missir (red lentils) & gomen (collard greens). Milka was delightful & attentive.
  • Fantastic food, cool vibe. You must be patient, though. Service is extremely slow, and the bar in the front isn't an actual bar (you can't order drinks there). But once you're seated, it's delish!
  • The Timatim fitful appetizer is one of the best I've tasted. The injera is perfectly tart, spongy and moist. The spicing is really good too. The interiors have been rebranded and redone. Very nice!!!
  • Vegan platter is crazy good
  • Delicious vegan and vegetarian options
  • Meat platter is our usual. Brooklyn location is better than other two. Pick up chocolate cake from chocolate room after.
  • Great service and delicious Ethiopian food. My boyfriend and I shared the combo for 2 and loved it!
  • Good food. Friendly staff. Laid back vibe.
  • Food was decent... The vegetables were a little salty though so if you have blood pressure issues I'd be careful if i was you. Honey wine is like most regular white wines so if u looking for sweet -no
