We appreciated the prompt service and large portions (perfect for those with healthy appetites). The curry was flavourful, half the plate spicy (especially with the optional green sauce) and the other half mild salad-topped rice, which helped cool down and β€˜reset’ between bites. The Mahiberawi combination (with injera base) was an enjoyable sampling of diverse flavours and textures. Overall: would recommend and will be back.

This was my first ethiopian dining experience so I had no idea what to expect. I can easily say at the time of writing this review that is the best place to eat in Yellowknife. Very unique, creative and flavourful. Get the mahiberawi Combo. πŸ‘

One of the best places in Yellowknife to eat at and certainly one of the most authentic Ethiopian restaurants in Canada. Our go-to is the yemisir wot. It's vegan, it is flavourful, and it comes with injera. The kids love the kik alicha, which is split peas and beets (and more injera!). The curried goat is also great if it is available. Finish off your meal with some traditionally served Ethiopian coffee (and popcorn). They roast the Ethiopian beans to order on a pan in the back!
