Their kitfo special is the very best around, and that is quite a prized dish. I’ve tried about ten of the other items and they are all above-average, no huge surprises but consistent freshness and quality. So this is definitely one of the better Ethiopian places, it is also the most “westward” really good Ethiopian place, and has nice ambience and decore. Weekends they run a buffet for 430, with lots of Ethiopian dishes to sample. Friendly service, though like many Ethiopian places it can be slightly slow. Definitely recommended.
