I want to first point out, I am not a difficult person at all & was actually in a celebratory mood when I came to this restaurant with my 2 buddies. I was celebrating a recent promotion that I received from work. The reason why I would rate this place an one star is due to the poor service and atmosphere. I came in the restaurant & I had to find myself a seat. The waitress was straggling in our orders. It took nearly a hour for the order to come. We ordered 3 dishes & she had only one right. The 1st dish was correct, the 2nd dish she brought was doro wot instead of doro tibs. I did not put a fuss, but when my friend & I were waiting for her to bring 3rd dish we realize that was all. We asked about the 3rd dish & she claimed we did not order the item even though we made it a point to tell her 3 times. I was sad to say after this whole ordeal I end up having to go to McDonalds to fill my apetite. The lady did not want to make the dish. She kept pointing out it will take a hour to make. I really wanted the 3rd dish I ordered. Its my favorite. As a result I was upset, but not to the point what happened next. When the bill came she included herself a tip. There was a handwritten tip included in the total bill of 20ish %. I was not only mad, I was levid. I guess she knew she was not getting a tip from us. I will highly not coming to this restaurant.! The food is ok, not the best I ever had & I have seen better service at Diamond I, Diamond II & Demera. There service is better, they have live music, the place does not look dead & items are similiarly priced. Also they located blocks from the area.

My fiance and I recently tried this restaurant out. It was definitely worth it. We tried a vegetarian sampler and a meat sampler to try as many items off the menu as we could. Everything was well done! Of the more than a dozen items that came between the two samplers, there was not one that we did not enjoy. And, the meal was very reasonably priced for the quality and amount of food. We had our fill and another few meals at home since we had what we couldn't finish to go. The staff was very attentive and helpful, explaining the various items that we ordered and how they were prepared. If you're looking for a new place to try, this one should be at the top of the list. We'll definitely be going back.
