I liked this restaurant very much. It was nice to have the opportunity for fine dining service at an Ethiopian restaurant. I liked the short ribs. Well seasoned and tasty. The atmosphere was nice, homey and comfortable with excellent service by the staff. Will have to return to try the lamb which was the other meal I wanted as well.

Very tasty food. This was my first try at Ethiopian food and I loved it. Much like Indian but with a smokier overall flavor. The atmosphere was casual elegant -jeans and a nice top is fine. It was festive but not loud. We could easily have a nice conversation. One thing that was problematic was the drink menu. It is black on a dark red background with small lettering and was very hard to read in the dim lighting. Overall a fabulous food experience, however. I will return.

Main course and wine suggestion were very good, but dessert took longer to arrive than meal itself. It was also frozen and thus not very flavorful.

We had our office party there and were given the upstairs which was empty and thus quiet.
Our server was spectacular!- Personable, informative, attentive, and respectful of our time and privacy.
Couldn't have asked for better care!

great flavors, friendly and attentive staff; too much food! Lovely atmosphere despite slightly high noise level. Great place for a larger group to share food, but also nice for two

Close to our hotel (Fairmont) in Georgetown, it looked full of atmosphere when we walked past on a Saturday night. So we booked it for the Sunday.

Very friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Food however was distinctly average in taste even though it sounded quite exotic.

Excellent service and great Ethiopian food. We were seated upstairs and it had a great vibe and was quieter than the main dining area downstairs.

We have walked by this restaurant many times and it’s always busy so decided to give it a try. The ambiance is lovely and the service is excellent. The food was good but not outstanding and the menu seemed somewhat limited. Overall we enjoyed it however and will likely return.

Absolutely great eating experience. We split the chicken and beef sampler and the vegetarian sampler because we wanted to try a little bit of everything. All of the food was really good, especially liked the beef dishes in the platter. I've eaten some Ethiopian street food before, but this was first time at a sit down restaurant. Be comfortable eating with your hands using the Ethiopian bread, which they'll continue to bring out fresh as you need it.

Lovely service and decor. Have been several times in the last year or two. The quality of the meat in the tibs was lacking, tried the beef last visit and the lamb most recently. Would have been 5* with higher quality meats.

Recommend getting the sampler platters. We ordered a vegetarian platter, a chicken and beef platter and the Shrimp Tib. Shrimp was amazing!!
