They have the best menu around and the employees are all very polite!\n\nDuring my most recent visit I had the Vegetable Sambusa soup ? best around and I love the combination of the peas and carrots ? you can never get enough of those.\n\nFor my main meal I ordered the Kitfo and although the food portion was quite large it was ve... view more

We tried this place this weekend and I was very impressed. The food was amazing, pricing was fair and the employees were very friendly. The place was not that crowded at all and there was enough room between tables that you didn?t hear any other conversations except for the lady that was talking on her phone for 15 minutes. \n\nWe started with the Vegetable Sambusa which I never had but loved and ordered a second ... view more

my favorite ethiopian in the east bay

This is an authentic and friendly restaurant serving delicious Ethiopian food. It's the best Ethiopian food I've had in the East Bay because it is consistently fresh and the injera is not too dry. The staff is friendly with timely service, it's a nice atmosphere, and the neighborhood allows for easy parking/general access. And if you want to watch soccer and enjoy the bar scene, there is a little sports bar attach... view more
