First, in the old tradition of constructive criticism I would like to mention the positives. The food was good (even coming from someone with impaired taste). Now, on to the constructive criticism part. It was a weird time of the day (around 4:30) so we were the only customers in the place for a while. The waitress did not seem to understand any English at all, so even for the simplest menu questions she had to fetch someone else to translate. Hence, she could not recommend anything when asked. One of the dishes we initially attempted to order was lamb, which was the only part the waitress did seem to understand, and told us there was no lamb today. But when a different dish we did end up ordering contained lamb (at least it looked like lamb), this led us to believe that the waitress did not understand that part after all. The bottle of beer that - I am told - is normally supposed to be served with an accompanying glass and a slice of orange came only in a bottle. The side salad, called Ye'Abbysinia Salad, which according to the menu description was supposed to contain an array of vegetables along with ""special Ethiopian dressing"" turned out to be nothing but tomatoes and lettuce with some oil and vinegar. It took at least an hour after the salad and the drinks came to get the main meal, even though the place was virtually empty. The meal finally came, and it was enjoyable, however when we attempted to order ginger ale, we were told (after some time) that it was flat, i.e. not available, so we had to settle for Coke. Because the entire experience took so long, we almost didn't order dessert (which strangely was listed under ""appetizers"" in the menu), but due to my fondness for baklava, we took the plunge. It was the first time I ever had Ethiopian baklava... and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise because it was quite good. A little denser than the Middle Eastern variety, the piece was large enough for 2 people, and a great value for the price. We even overlooked the fact that it only came with one fork even though we made it clear we were sharing :). The decaf coffee I specifically ordered turned out to be the caffeinated variety, and so I came very close to being awake all night (because that’s what very strong caffeinated coffee does to me when I drink it after 2pm). Luckily I thought to double check and was then told that they do not have decaf. The coffee was taken back and I got a Lipton teabag with hot water with some Ethiopian spices, which unfortunately I couldn’t really taste. The only thing that came rather fast was the check. I definitely would not recommend going there if you are on some sort of restricted time schedule because you just never know when you will get your food.
