Go for the experience
Submitted Friday, February 15, 2008 - 4:39pm [Dine in]

Spent a good 2 weeks planning to to an Ethiopian restaurant based on the joke that they'd serve us 'nothing' (not trying to be racist, just basing off my ignorant TV media based knowledge)

I went with 3 friends. The experience was completely unexpected!

first of all, there was food. ha! Also, we had to eat the food using our hands, and no utensils. It looked like a rolled up thin sponge bread. It was used to pick up the food like a napkin.

Everything we ordered was in the $11-$15 range. we ordered the vegetarian sampler, as well as the meat sampler. I'm no fan of the vegetarian food, so I only liked 2/5 choices. the meat one was all good. We also ordered the coffee ceremony, which if you only had to order one thing on the menu, it'd have to be this one. what a setup! after that, we ordered about 3 other dishes. everyone was full afterwards. My favorite of the 3 dishes was the one not on the sampler menu, but contained chicken breast. another good one was the raw beef, but the spiciness for that one was overwhelming. All in all, a good time.

If anyone is even curious about Ethiopian food, I recommend this place just to experience something different from the standard westernized restaurant.

Food came quick, good.

Other than that. The ratio of Price: food quality/Quantity would only seem normal to people drunk after a night on the town.
good thing there's plenty of pizza places nearby.

Ordered a Mongolian fried rice dish, a chow mien dish, and salted peppery cuttlefish. The cuttlefish was mediocre, and more of an appetizer serving. It was also the most expensive of the bunch. as for the Mongolian fried rice, I swear it was exactly the same as seafood fried rice. I've had better food for cheaper at Chinese cafes in Richmond.

I'm not sure how they expected me and my crew to eat the noodles and the rice, because after they first brought the cuttlefish, they took away our table's bowls. Then when I asked for some new bowls. they only brought back 1, when there was 5 of us at the table. My buddy had to jack 4 more from a table setting behind him.

Ambiance. classic stereotypical Chinese restaurant. with a bonus waiter that looks like a Chinese peter griffin.

I purposely signed up on DINEHERE to complain about this restaurant. I'll most likely not come back. But that's solely based on that one visits food quality/price and strange service.
