What They Say

Warm friendly staff, makes you feel at home. Extraordinarily delicious food - we always get the Abesha special. If we're really hungry between two, we'll get an order of Doro Wat and extra injera too and just such good value, it feels like a steal!

Every dish had its own distinct and delicious flavour which made tasting each one a fun experience. Service was very friendly and prompt. We left very happy and full. Highly recommend!
First experience trying Ethiopian food, unique flavours. Loved the presentation. Very helpful manager, he recommended the food to us. We tried the beef, lamb and chicken. Lamb was our favourite. It was soft and juicy.
