Great exotic experience! – I was in the mood for something out of the ordinary last week when my GPS informed me that there was an Ethiopian restaurant nearby. I had never eaten Ethiopian food before, so I had very little idea of what to expect. The restaurant is on the bottom floor of a somewhat sketchy looking building, but the food is what's important. I can't remember the name of my dish, but it was lamb cooked in a red sauce with peppers. It was served on (and with) a spongy flatbread that reminded me of crepes. The lamb and sauce were perfectly spiced and I left wanting more. The restaurant has a couple of televisions, including one that was tuned to the football game, which was perfect for a Sunday afternoon. There are some neat looking booths that are enclosed by beaded curtains...very cool! I was certainly impressed by the whole experience and I'll be back.
Just Like A 3rd World Country - Worst Service Ever – I just left this restaurant, if you can call it that. The food was ok, once it arrived; but the service was below sub par. Honestly, after listening to some rather annoying music non-stop, overly loud, the manager changing the channels on the big screen with commercials coming in at top volume our small group was getting highly irritated, a birthday ruined. The place was dirty, the menu consisted of 8 choices, without drink listings, deserts, or apparently hot water, which seemed to be an impossibility there. The waitress approached our table without pen and paper, couldn't tell us about the food except "dry or juicy", and everything was on the spicy side and not listed on the menu, which had the title of the restaurant printed on top of the food descriptions making it difficult to read. I sat there wondering how in the world this dump was even open. It is most likely a front for an illegal operation.
Bottom line, this place needs to be SHUT DOWN. I would only recommend it to my WORST enemy.
Magnificent food – If you've never tried Ethiopian food, this is the place to go. If you have eaten Ethiopian food, you'll want to add this restaurant to list of best places to eat. The atmosphere is fun with several tables surrounded by grass huts and beaded doorways. There is a large screen TV across the room with a show of native Ethiopian dancers and music. (This restaurant is fairly large as it also has a bar.)
Ethiopian food is served family style on a large platter with a flat piece of Ethopian bread serving as the plate. Small amounts of each type of food are placed around the bread so that everyone is within easy reach of the food. The meat is served in the middle. We ordered a beef dish which looked like fajita beef, but was so much tastier. We also ordered a vegetable platter which had several types of vegetable dishes. I highly recommend getting the platter as it's a great way to try many different things, plus it goes great with the beef dish. Most dishes were not spicy (very flavorful, but not spicy), but beware of the peppers! I found them too hot, but my boyfriend absolutely loved them. No utensils are used with Ethiopian food. Instead, a big pile of flat bread is served. The bread is stretchy and somewhat spongy, but oh so good. To eat the food, you tear off a piece of bread and pick the food up with it. It's a fun experience and a delicious meal all in one. Total, with tip and everything, our meal for two (with leftovers) cost $24 - a steal. I bet you'll be like us and add this restaurant to your regular routine because once you eat here, you'll be sure to go back.
