Noticed this place was close-ish to where I'm living, so decided to give it a try. It's probably a bit out of the way for most people, but if you're in the mood for some Ethiopian it's really not that hard to get to just get the bus from Elephant and Castle. It's in a dingy looking council block, but inside the atmosphere is fine. I found it had been described as both an Ethiopian and Eritrean restaurant which doesn't really make much of a difference as the two countries are next to each other and the cuisine is very similar. Like the others here, I opted for the £16 platter for two (luckily I had a dining companion with me!) There was a good mix of vegetables and meat, and we were both very full and couldn't finish all of the injera (flat bread). The food was delicious, and will be cooked according to your spice preference. I like spicy food but my dining companion didn't, so I was able to get some chilli on the side! The staff here are lovely and accommodating and will always explain dishes to those unfamiliar with the cuisine. They apparently also run a cafe next-door (which is now part of the same restaurant) during the day, which is probably why this is categorised as a cafe, but it really should be in the African/Ethiopian restaurants category, as that's the main attraction
The place is very nice and I like it. I've been there a couple of time but I'd surely visit again. Food is excellent and all the coffee drinks are a delight. Especially the flat white they make it heavenly.
