    Friendly staff. Relaxed and lovely feel to restaurant. We had the tasting feast. Tasty food, fair price. If you are a big eater may need more. Wonderful to have a cultural food experience. Recommended.

    This restaurant was unique as Ethiopian cuisine eateries are not common in Sydney. The food was delicious and nutritious. The service friendly. It had a family feel with the home cooked variety. The service was attentive yet relaxed. The presentation of the food was lovely. In expensive what a find. We will be back and will recommend this to our friends.

    Staff member we dealt with was very friendly and considerate. If you've never had Ethiopian before I would absolutely trust yourself in thimeir hands. That it's vegan is such a bonus!

    The restaurant was great. I liked the presentation and the decor. The music was good and tied in with the atmosphere. Most of all the food was great, they only had vegan options but was very tasty.

    I was so excited to finally try this place as I love Ethiopian food, but I was embarrassed to have brought my friends here for the ‘feast’ platter. We were charged $150 for one platter of food. The bill came to $167 with corkage, my friends thought I was joking. Had we ordered everything separately it would have come to $105. They charge extra for the bread (one piece for 5 people constitutes a feast?). And whilst not big eaters, we all left hungry. Such a shame, but I won’t be returning and would advise others to dine elsewhere. Plenty of great value food to be had in the inner west.

    Hearty and nourishing food served with a warm smile in a friendly atmosphere. Many classics with some innovative dishes using local ingredients but keeping true to cultural style of preparation. Certainly going back for more.

    A wonderful family-run gem of an Ethiopian restaurant in the Inner West of Sydney - vegetarian gourmet food and their injera is a spectacular addition (whether you are eating with fingers or forks)
