  • For an appetizer get the vegetable sambusa and for the entree, vegetable combo! So good and the service is fantastic! The Tusker beer is also pretty awesome!
  • Nice people willing to help a novice navigate his way through their offerings.
  • Lunch buffet is full of a great variety! Try the spicy seasoning and Ethiopian hot sauce
