The Kik Watt (yellow split pea) and Shiro Watt were awesome. Overall food quality is better than Cafe Lalibela. We were told that the injera (bread) is made with teff, which is very authetic and expensive, but that other restaurants don't use as much of. Tina was very charming and made sure everybody is full and happy! We heard they closed until Feb08 to prepare for the move to a location across the street. Note also the buffet is by request only, call/email in advance. Although, the platter had a good variety and don't hesitate to ask for more!

Tina's Ethiopian is truly a unique dining experience. The food was good and arrived steaming hot. It really does feel like eating in someone's living room with the sofa/chair seating arrangement. Apparently in Ethiopia if you see an open door around dinner time, it means you can enter and buy dinner. This is a similar experience. Tina is a great hostess/cook, and came out to visit with us after we ate. We had an interesting & lengthy conversation about different topics (career, food, people, politics). Tina and her husband (Dan) are very interesting, educated, and intelligent people. We went on July 4th, so there weren't too many people there, and we were able to chat for a while. I have to say this was the most interesting dining experience I've ever had, and way more than I expected! Definitely go for the food and culture.
