I've been meaning to eat here ever since the day I walked by and smelled injera cooking... finally made it this weekend.
It's by far the most brightly lit Ethiopian restaurant either I or any of my dining companions have ever been to. It kind of feels like the inside of a Subway sandwich shop. That said, the waitstaff are very warm and friendly, and the food is very good. Not earth-shaking, genre-defining good (that distinction goes to Zeni in San Jose, for me), but I-plan-to-become-a-regular good.
The injera is thinner than in most places, and a little more sour than I like. We had kitfo (nicely spicy), lamb tibs (ordered rare, but the pieces are so small that by the time all the sides brown, they're pretty done - still tasted good, though), doro wat (sauce was less oniony than my ideal), a potato and cabbage dish (tasty, didn't stand out one way or another for me), red lentils (delicious, but maybe a little less buttery than my ideal), and collard greens (also good).
In general, the food was less oily than most Ethiopian places I've been to, which overall is a very good thing - I just like super-buttery lentils.
With a couple of beers, tax and tip, cost was $16pp.
