Stated couple price seems high, I'd place it more like $35ish but then I/ we don't eat as much as some. Had spent some daytimes here while working locally- great coffee and european nibbles (muffins etc.) for a lunch/ break. Had a couple of light evening meals there and later took a lady back (of muslim interest)  once for another. Both loved the Ethiopian food and flavours.  Yes portions are generous. I'd spend more time there but on a limited budget, what can you do? Hostess is true and kind, a migrant working hard to make her life in New Zealand.!! Recommended 5*

Lovely service, what an wonderful experience! Best to share unless you are able to manage one plate on your own. We tried Doro Wat, Prawns in mild sauce and Yetsom Beyaynetu and it was delicious.

Authentic, delicious. We spent a couple of weeks in Ethiopia in 2016 and always hunt it out now wherever we go. We came here a year ago and it was was good, but not great, but we went last night and it was amazing. The food was all distinctly different in flavour but equally delicious, we couldn't decide which was the best. They allowed my wife to order Shiro as a full serve this time which made her day. The traditional coffee was delicious. The owners were super accommodating even though they were due to close. Highly recommend trying it out. Come with an open mind if you've never had Ethiopian before, the injera (fermented flatbread) is not something you will quickly forget. We will be back.
