    SENSATIONAL ETHIOPEAN CUISINE !

    Finally, a wonderfully tasty, friendly Ethio-resto in the city ! Best Bets ! ========== House salad - drenched in a vibrant salty/garlicky dressing...a perfect pairing with the delicious stewed meat offerings ! Lamb T'ibs - full of flavour and sauteed just right ! (served of course on the best Injera in the city ! The service is friendly and attentive ! This is a must try ! Reasonably - priced house wines.

    Food was terrific! Eating with only ur hands is such an amazing experience. Staff were very helpful as it was our first experience with the food/culture.

    The food was absolutely delicious, and I would definitely recommend others to go and enjoy it. We had the vegetable platter to share with a the Ethiopian national dish (chicken) and the flavours were divine. Service was a bit slow, and we needed to prompt them a few times. Not a place I would return to for a quick bite, but for a long catch up with friends or family it is a great choice.

    The plate they served on was totally cold. Food not oily which was good but most of the sides dull. The waitress literally threw the plates down without a hello. A definite downer

    All round great place to enjoy Ethiopian food. The staff was extremely attentive and friendly (they brought out a special treat for my daughter's 19th birthday at the end of the meal), the food was delicious and the atmosphere was warm and friendly (and it wasn't too loud so we were able to talk and hear each other speak!) A very enjoyable evening!

    I was very happy to discover this restaurant. The reception we got was very friendly and the food was delicious. I was sorry to hear they are moving as the location is now great for a pre-movie dinner near the Dundas and Yonge Cineplex. But I will follow them where they go - look forward to hearing about their new location.

    A very warm, friendly, family atmosphere. The gentleman attending our table was quite kind and thoughtful. Our 20 year old daughter was coughing due to cold - he came to our table with the offer of a special cup of tea for her --- indicating that this would help her cough -- very attentive -- Thank you. The food was delicious and filling. A new dining experience for us, one which we thoroughly enjoyed.

    As always, when eating here we feel like part of the family. The service is incredibly friendly. But the food itself always surpasses expectations. The injeera is perfectly spongy, the lentil soup is incredible, and the red lentils (misr wat) is always my favorite. The steak tartar is made authentically, though, so be sure to let your lovely chef know if you want it a little milder than they would eat it.

    You can feel that it is a family business serving food that they cook at home. It is amazing! Be prepared to eat with your hands and share in traditional Ethiopian style. I always go back, again and again. I wish i could give more stars!

    The people were very kind and attentive. The food was delicious. However, they gave us old menus that had old pricing, as well as new menus with new pricing. There were a couple of menus and it wasn't clear what was available. The food was so good, I didn't worry about it much, but greater clarity would have been helpful.

    Service slow. Didn't have record of our reservation ,food came out unexpectedly fast which leaves me to believe its sitting around... as any other Ethiopian rest takes a good while to make it fresh... and food was below average.

    My partner and I continue our rediscovery of places to eat in downtown Toronto We select restaraunts that are affordable and in some way unique. It was my choice this week and I chose ethiopique. First off if you don't like injera a rubbery like pancake no matter how tasty the food you're out of luck! I am such a person. We ordered the vegetarian/meat platter for two turned out it was just a little appetizer though listed as a main. There was one tiny chicken leg a very small piece of lamb (smaller than a chop) a few tiny pieces of beef, about 1/4 cup of various lentils, three different kinds, a pinch of ice burg lettuce topped with a little cottage cheese. I tried my best with the pancake but when I started to heave I stopped. I was still hungry so I waited a bit and used my fingers to eat. The food -what little there was- was very tasty, if only for someone like me you could substitute injera for pita bread, my review might be more positive. The atmosphere was relaxed service was friendly but in the end this place fails even the least of my expectations. I'm at home eating some toasted bread and cheese, I'm still hungry
