An Ethiopian restaurant

Restaurant, Caterer

Traditional Ethiopian restaurant with many vegetarian (vegan) dishes that are clearly marked on the menu, including red lentils, yellow split peas, greens, potatoes, cabbage, chick peas, and more. They also feature a lunch buffet weekday afternoons, which offers a number of veg options.

In addition to "regular" tables" the restaurant also features traditional-style Ethiopian tables so you can have a traditional Ethiopian dining experience.

I ordered the $14 vegetarian sampler - a choice of 5 veg entrees. I was expecting something like an Indian thali, but instead received 5 narrow strips of pureed 'something' with a texture similar to baby food and colors not found in nature. None of the 'curries' were flavorful or tasty. The sambusa appetizer was tasty, but an Indian samosa is tastier because most come with a sweet dipping sauce. The owner / manager was friendly and tried to be helpful, but I really think he needs to work on his kitchen.

Have had Ethiopian cuisine in most major North American cities, and Columbus has a real gem in this welcoming restaurant! Flavorful, well prepared (excellent injera) vegetarian/vegan options. Order the sampler plate with tomato fit-fit and experience the other world.
