Northern NV's only Ethiopian restaurant

The new location is delightful and is run by the same woman as on 4th street. I love the ambience with the African music videos in the background and warm spiced air. I've never seen it properly busy before and wonder how she is able to keep chugging along. The mesir wat and tikil gomen are my personal favorite dishes. All of the food is very simple and traditional, but it's unique fare for Reno.

Pros: Only Ethiopian restaurant in northern NV, Gluten-free, Authentic

Cons: Slower service since entire staff is 1-3 people

unique veggie options

Ethiopian never disappoints. Six vegan options, plus salad. Spiced tea is a must.

Excellent Vegan Ethiopian Cuisine

We are big fans of Ethiopian food and make a point of finding some when we get to the Bay Area. While we've found some great restaurants, this place near home that we just discovered takes the "first place" prize in our eyes. We had 4 of the 6 vegan entrees and loved all of them (they are marked vegetarian, but we confirmed as did the previous reviewer that they are free of animal products). we also had a tasty sweet ginger tea, but ask about the sweetener in this instance, as the owner uses sugar and honey interchangeably.

Pros: Spectacularly flavorful entrees, 6 vegan choices, Beautifully decorated interior

Cons: Serve meat, Use honey in several items, Only 6 choices

Great food and service

We relatively new vegans, and used to come to this restaurant before. We remembered that they had many veggie dishes, but werent sure if they used dairy or ghee in them still. We called ahead and double checked once we arrived as well, and were assured that the veggie dishes were vegan.

We got 3.. .the Mesir Wat (Lentils), Tikil Gomen(Cabbage), and Gomen(Collard Greens). Its served on delicious and hearty Injera bread with more on the side. You use the bread as the silverware and eat with your hands.

It was so delicious. Boldly but responsibly seasoned, super savory, and every dish was very unique despite them all sounding very similar on the menu.

I like the spot and the owner/cook is a sweetheart, I'd love to see them get more business and stick around. Perhaps even add a few more veg dishes.

Pros: Tasty food, Unique Experience

Cons: Not specifically vegan on the menu
