Review: I love Ethiopian food and living in New Zealand there isn't any. So my partner and I were stoked to eat here! The menu is 50/50 vegetarian and meat fare. The restaurant is huge and spans 3 levels. The middle level is decorated beautifully with furniture and beautiful artwork from Ethiopia. The ceiling has fabric brollies which double up as lamp shades which give a wonderful ambiance. The staff are very polite and dressed smartly. They fully understand the concept of veganism and know all about the dishes, as well as advising on the best value lunch specials of the day. We had the lunch special which was a medium size portion of each of the vegan friendly dishes. Some of the food can be really spicy so if that's a problem for you then make sure you let them know in advance. Everything tasted amazzzzzing. I also loved the potato which is soft and creamy and just great. I came back again to eat with my family and to save any hassle we chose to eat the vegetarian platter. I can't really imagine what it would be like if your family wanted to eat meat and you wanted to eat veggie. If you really couldn't compromise they do offer to leave the dishes inside their plates instead of emptying them onto the injera. Somebody else in the reviews said it was expensive. I don't really get that. Top notch service, amazing venue and fantastic food. We paid 180 rand for all our drinks and the food. That's only 33 New Zealand Dollars! You'd pay that for one person in New Zealand. I love this place and would recommend that everybody try it at least once.
