Great food – I often try out new places with friends, and I find the food here VERY VERY DELICIOUS. And I do not even care too much for ethiopian food.
They serve a lot of interesting dishes and most of those I've tried (I've been there four times already just for this month!) are really really good.
They would need to expand soon. Most of the times I was there, the place was packed. You need to wait to be seated and then you find yourself in a cramped space.
friendly – Friendly atmosphere, but noisy kids who were running around when we were there. The place is small so needless to say it was pretty intrusive. The staff was very helpful with their suggestions.
Editorial Review – Affordable Ethiopian meat and veggie specialties come in large portions or as combination sampler platters for the uninitiated.
great variety plates, but SLOW service – I try to eat here whenever I can, the "sampler" dishes have been by favorite by far. I've never had great service here, but the food and price make up for it. Take some friends, split some dishes and you will go away full, and with some money left in your wallet! (Just plan and extra 1/2 hour for the slow service!)
Different, But Good – I had this Gojo's cater a workplace luncheon. It was surprisingly good!!! It's a little greasy, but very filling and tasty!
