We came back to after being away for a few years, and were surprised with the improvements. The food was delicious, service was excellent, and the place, although simple, was spotless. My only complaint (personal preference) is I wish the lentils on the veggie combo were served warm. Will definitely come back.

We were a table of 10 Military brats (out of several hundred at this reunion) who attended an American high school in Madrid, Spain during the 60s.
We had some specific morning site seeing planned with lunch at the Skyline. It was a first Ethiopian food experience for 7 of the 10 and an overwhelming success for all 10. The dishes were all tasty, the beers and wines were greatly complimentary and the staff made it a great
experience for all. Kudos to how easy it was to have a successful eating vent in a town somewhat unfamiliar to all of us!

There seemed to be a soccer game going on that was broadcasted on the TV; this kept the staff from promptly serving us at times. Also, the music was very loud. Food was great, service friendly, and enjera delish. Not sure I'll go back, but was a fun place to try out once.

Wanted to try a local ethnic restaurant and had good food with fair service in a cramped strip mall sports bar. Tried the veggie and meat combos so we could get a got sense of the Ethiopian Cuisine. Many of the selections were quite spicy. The receptionist initially sent us back out into the rain when we mentioned we had an Open Table reservation and had to show my reservation on my iPhone to get service.

The staff was very friendly and the food superb. We were the only diners for quite some time and as more people trickled in it seemed more a bar than restaurant, but not rowdy or disruptive. The food was amazingly good. We would definitely go again!

The food was authentic and perfectly seasoned. The wait staff were friendly and eager to help with suggestions and descriptions of the the food. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and never felt like we were being rushed.
