  • Get the water, it's really cold and refreshing. Its an excellent choice for minors such as my self.
  • the 2nd cheapest food on the block. Very friendly to non-ethiopians and easier to navigate menu.big portions, yummy food and at times can be busy with a variety of types - so very first-timer friendly
  • Try the honey wine
  • Super Messob platter with extra vegetables...Mmmmmm...
  • Don't bother- any other spot in the area is better.
  • Try the Super Messob Exclusive if you don't know what to get -- it's a little bit of everything
  • Ordered the #4 beef dish raw... first (and last) time for everything... the flat bread is amazing though!
  • The honey wine is delicious. Try the awaze tibs with collard greens on the side.
  • saw danny devito at this place.
  • Waitresses are fantastic. The combination dishes are perfect to share.The injera is a bit too sour for my palate, although it soaks the flavors and juices of the food well as it is designed.
  • Good food.. great service.. different experience..
  • Service here is good. I had the vegetarian plate, and there was quite a good amount of food, which was tasty satisfying.
  • I was a bit weary of Ethiopian food until a friend told me I had to try it. Eating with my hands at a restaurant was a bit out of my norm, but I must say the food was really tasty!
  • Food here can be made vegan if you ask for it.
  • The service was pleasant and fast. The food wasn't bad, but wasn't great either (the lamb was tough and the spices subdued).
  • If you're gluten-free call the day before to get the teff-only injera (they will charge extra). Otherwise you can ask for lettuce leaves and tip well!
  • Try the side order of tomato fit fit. Love it and do try the Gursha ;)
  • The honey wine is amazing...
  • If you're gluten-sensitive, call ahead of time and they can make sure to have teff-only injera! If you can call the day before, even better
  • I'm in luck! Top Chef Marcus Samuelsson is dining here as we speak!!!
