This is the place you will be filled with an African dish in Durham! You will love this place. The Ethiopian dishes are extremely outstanding. You don't feel yourself eating, because you will be enjoying the dish, you can even forget that you are now full 🤣🤣🤣
The fried cheese cake here is amazing and the lamb meat 🍖 😋🤝🏽

We loved everything about this place! The two young ladies that served us we're so kind and hospitable. They made great suggestions as this was our first time experiencing Ethiopian food. The food was delicious the music was great. We definitely will be back. I can't remember the dish with the cornbread cake and collard greens, but it was delicious!

Unfortunately, I think our experience would have been much improved by visiting on a weeknight when the restaurant was much slower. The servers were trying their best it seemed, but the restaurant was almost packed and I just don't think they had the staff to accomodate. Everyone was friendly, but we were waterless, appetizer never came, and we had to ask several times to ask for the check and to pay (we ending up having to go to the bar).
My food was amazing though! I had the Doro Wot with beet salad and it was spicy, flavorful and delicious. My partner got the lamb tibs and they were a little overcooked.
We really Ethiopian but won't be going back.

I ordered the kashka for a starter. It was delicious the collards tasted like it came from grandmas house lol
For entree I tried the Doro tibs and the vegan combination. It was amazing!!!. I highly suggest checking this place out. Really nice atmosphere, great food and great service

Great food served fairly quickly. The portion sizes are amazingly spot on. You leave feeling full but not stuffed. They had many options that were gluten-free and could be made dairy-free, which made eating here that much better.

$15 veggie combo platter! Lovely people working there! Amazing food!! Parking isn’t too shabby. Swanky but not pretentious ambience - would be an awesome place to take a date or a buddy. Really nice atmosphere & drinks, too. This is actually a 4.5 star review, and the half star off is just because the take out containers for hot food are plastic, which is neither healthy nor recyclable nor biodegradable. Eating hot food out of plastic is just never a great idea for basic health & I think waxed paper take-out containers would probably be pretty equivalently priced for their side of things, so no reason not to fix that & offer a healthier take out option.
But that is a minor note & overall this place is fabulous; I can’t recommend any other Ethiopian places in the area more highly. This is hands down the place!

I had a fantastic experience at this Ethiopian restaurant. The food was flavorful and authentic, and the portions were generous. I loved the injera bread and the variety of dishes that came with it. The service was fast and friendly, and the atmosphere was cozy and inviting. The restaurant also had a nice selection of drinks and desserts. I highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to try something different and delicious.

Sambusa is awesome! It is like samosa but with lentil and other in the filling. For main dish, I enjoyed my beef Awaze tibs. It is like stirred fried beef w/ onion in seasoned spicy sauce. I find injera by itself is a bit too sour for me but having injera together with the food is delicious. I am also a big fan of the beets salad and lentil salad!! The reason I gave 4 star is because of extreme long waiting time.. took a very long time for water, food, utensils…but other than that I had a good exotic food adventure.

Authentic Ethiopian Food, great atmosphere, and location. The food is great and has good vegan options. Only one hostesses/bartendar so be prepared to wait. They were not super busy and this was my first time so hopefully they have the young lady some help on busy days. She was pleasant and attended well to our needs.
