I have been visiting this restaurant for 3 years now and I’ve never been disappointed. The food is delicious and very filling and the staff are always very helpful, especially to those who are new to Ethiopian cuisine.

For those who have not encountered Ethiopian food before, their staple food is injera, a flat bread with a pancake like texture. Demera makes my favourite injera -its more “lemony” than others I have tasted.

The meat and vegetables are cooked as stews in a way that one might compare to South Indian or Sri Lankan curries but with different spices. A large piece of injera is rolled out like a plate with the meat and vegetables served on top of it. You eat with your hands, using other bits of injera to scoop up the stews. At the end you eat the injera the food was served on, which by then is soaked with a delicious mixture of gravies. Eating like this is a lot of fun and quite nice for couples as you share from the same plate of food.

A meal here is suprisingly cheap. A main course for two people and a bottle of wine will come to under £30. I’ve never been able to manage more that a main course-the portions are huge!

I’d thoroughly recommend this place to those who enjoy Ethiopian cuisine. If you haven’t tried this type of food before, give it a go! It really is good fun!
