ok, but needs some menu improvements.
Heard from a couple of people it was a good place to have lunch at a good price, while trying something different. So I went on a Saturday with some friends. I love trying different cultures of food. The waiter was really nice & the place was cute & clean. Their tea is really good & spicy, and they have a cool way to serve coffee. The only complaint about their coffee is that it was warm, but not hot like most people like. I wanted to try some different things, so I ordered the meat & vegi combo. We recieved a platter with cabbage, greens, 2 types of lentils, with fluffy thin bread and salad. Honestly, if you are a Southern Kentuckian or a German, you can cook the greens and cabbage yourself at home. I wasn't impressed with that part, but the lentils were to die for. The lentils scooped up with the bread was so yummy. We figured that was our vegis and waited for the meats to come out, but when the waiter came he asked us if we wanted dessert. That's when we figured out he mistakenly gave us the vegi combo platter and not the meat&vegi combo platter. We decided to go ahead and order carrot cake. BAD IDEA! We knew carrot cake wasn't Ethopian, but we thought they might have a twist on it, but it tasted like the same carrot cake they sell at the local grocery store deli. Oh, we also ordered a sambussa chicken pastry for the starters. If you ever had ethenic sambussa you would know the diffence in the pastry shell. This place just used a phyllo dough form, and not real ethenic sambussa homemade dough. Plus they charge you $2 per sambussa, which is a rip off for cheap phyllo dough. Saying this, I can only give them 3 stars right now. I will be going back to try their meat dishes, since they messed up my order last time. Plus I'm craving some of their yummy lentils. The only advice I have for them is to come up with some desserts of their own, and to actually make their sambussa dough ethenic and not to take short cuts. I'll try them one more time, and let everyone know how it went.
