What They Say

The food was absolutely AMAZING! I have traveled many places and tried many Ethiopian cuisines but this one by far is the BEST I’ve had. Not to mention the service and vibes was awesome. I’ll definitely be coming back!

Took our large family here and everyone loved it. The entire staff was so friendly, they look great care of us and the food was delicious. Favorites include dry ribs and shiro wat but really, it was all great. Thank you Hope Eritrean-Ethiopian team!

Went there for the first time with my family and WOW! We had over 5 dishes and they were all amazing. Also a must have is the coffee at the end! The staff were so nice and accommodating. We will definitely be returning soon.
