    Feels like home

    I had such a great time at this place. The food quality was amazing such wonderful service. It was my first time when I come to this place but the food remind me what I used to have back home. It is such a fun place if you are going with your family yet I was alone and I enjoyed it as much.the price is reasonable and I am planning to visit more often. I would recommend this place in a heart beat :)

    favourite Ethiopian restaurant in SF

    The family that operates this restaurant had another restaurant in the upper Haight for many years. l had Ethiopian food for the first time as a kid at that restaurant, Massawa, in the 90's. l was instantly hooked. when they left Massawa l visited a few times but the food was just not the same. Long story short, this lady is a great chef and the people are nice.

    A place to express your inner elitist

    I've eaten at ethiopian/eritrean restaurants before, and this one tops them all. The food was outstanding, the service friendly, and the atmosphere comfortable. We all know the "tradition" of eating this food with your hands, picking it up with the bread, but yes, it's ok to ask for a fork. It's not an embarrassment. The only downside of the restaurant is its cult appeal. This is a restaurant, not a cultural experience. You are not in Africa. Being there doesn't make you African any more than being in a Thai restaurant makes you Thai. Elitism poisoned the air with upturned noses and banal conversations. If that's your thing, then make a date at eight when you'll be surrounded by like-minded people. Otherwise, go early when the restaurant is empty and enjoy the great food. Apparently, the most frequently ordered beverage on their menu is Flavor Aid. People were guzzling it by the gallon.

    Fabulous

    I could live off this food all the time and never get bored of it. It is incredible. Yum. Go there. Flock there. Just not too often, or else I wouldn't be able to go quite as frequently.
