The food is fantastic. I always get the vegan dish. I even buy the sides at Whole Foods. Service is my only issue. They are friendly but not attentive. My phone actually got stolen off my table here. Some kids came in and sat at a table and no employees were on the floor to help them. They eventually grabbed my phone and ran. I think attentiveness could help discourage loitering such as this. Much safer to take out or buy from While Foods, though.

Located in a strip mall, this simple, unassuming, yet quite cozy and welcoming place serves up some of the best Ethiopian food you can find in Arizona. We tried their Vegetable Combination (fosolia, gomen, misr wat, and tikil gomen, served with injera and garnished with salad). We also ordered a separate plate of their Yebeg Alicha Sega Wat (lamb stew). All these dishes were freshly made and tasted divine. We felt we were eating very healthy and tasty food. All these went full review

Wow, what a delicious meal. I got the lunch combination with the Spicy Chicken, Spicy beef, and mild beef. As you can see, they were very well prepared and rather tasty. However the mild beef was "mildly" disappointing (haha, just a little bit of a joke there for you) in comparison to the other two, which were phenomenal in every sense of the word. Anyway, this place was definitely really good. A solid 4/5. I will certainly be coming back.
