My husband and I visited this place to give Ethiopian food a try. We were delighted at the service we received. The waitress patiently explained the food to us. When the food was ready she brought a sample out to show us how to eat the food traditionally if we wanted to. After she left, we dove into the delicious spices and stews that she had brought.
I was so full but couldn't help running my injera (flatbread-ish) along the sides of the plate to soak up the last of the flavours. A lentil stew and cabbage dish were our two favourites because they brought a whole new kind of lentil and cabbage to us - but everything was wonderful.

This place has the best brunch in town. The food and bread are fresh, and wonderful. Coffees keep coming, and they are real coffees not that crappy drip stuff. The waiters are respectful and calm in the morning - which is usually much needed on Sunday brunch.
The benny's are delicious, but the Main street eggs are always a good bet too. I've been here for appies and drinks once and the appy platter was an excellent deal and the sangria was classic.
The ingredients are fresh and they always have new things to try.

This was a dine out dinner - which can be notoriously bad as staff are put to the test with overbooked sittings and mass produced food. Our waiter obviously was sick of his job, which he reminded us of several times he was just "so tired of being in the restuarant all day."
Times for the meal went like this:
40 minutes to get our table because they obviously overbooked (we had a reservation)
over 40 minutes to get our appies
50 minutes to get our dinner - half the orders were cold and we had 4 pieces of naan for a table of 8
over 20 minutes to get dessert that tasted like it had been bought at costco 3 days prior
The food did not taste fresh. It was also tastless. My friend had the butter chicken and it was sickly sweet - very odd. I just wanted to leave, but the food would not come and it was unimpressive when it did make it.

The service I had was excellent and the servers were very informed about Japanese food. They not only answered a lot of my questions, but also listened to my terrible Japanese and carried on a conversation with me (which would take some patience).
The food was great and fresh. They also use Japanese mayo instead of Western mayo, which is not usually the case and tastes entirely different. There was also some very entertaining Japanese TV programming on the background TVs.
