went with a group of 7 to Dukem for a birthday dinner last night. It's an Ethiopian restaurant at Danforth and Donlands. I'd been there a few times before with small groups. What most impressed me was the service - the host was attentive and asked the right questions to see what we knew about the cuisine and how much help we needed. We ended up getting four platters; two people ate solo dishes - I had the Awaze Tibs (beef with garlic, berber sauce, peppers); a group had the vegetarian and lamb tibs combination platter, and another trio had a bigger vegetarian combination. Unless you ask for it, the waiter will bring your group a platter with a variety of dishes and injera.
All in all I felt the restaurant had fantastic variance of dishes, nice seasoning and balance of spices, and everything was fresh. We had a house white wine and a few tiramisu - which was home made and tasty - and spent about $20-30 per person. The place has a very relaxed feeling and we spent quite a long time.
It's the only restaurant on my side of the Danforth I've so far experienced that serves consistently good food and service.
