    Great food and a great experience. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. We cleaned our plate and it was a lot of food! I’ll be thinking of injera and those lentils for days.

  2. blaze psychology

    Clean, delish, and gluten free vegan options were perfect!

    Vegetarian options: Very solid

  3. Alexandria Cota

    My partner and I absolutely LOVED our lunch! Being vegan and gluten free it’s not always easy to find food! The Injere was incredible and our lentil dish was hearty, delicious and so authentic! Definitely come here when you visit Bellingham! A new favorite!

  4. Chloe Hovind Clinkenbeard

    Truly a cozy hole in the wall, with a smaller menu, but that’s how you know that every dish is delicious! Great for sharing/family style.

    Vegetarian options: Half the menu is vegetarian

  5. Anthony Gass

    Amazing. What an absolute treat of a spot in Bellingham. Love the sharing nature of Ethiopian food.

  6. Donnie M

    What a nice cozy place. Don’t expect much as ambiance goes, but the food! Wow. Great comfort food. Very small place plan according.

  7. Cole P.

    Wow. Hands down, hidden gem in Bellingham. Absolutely delicious! The spices from the chicken stew, paired with the creaminess of the homemade cottage cheese!! Oh gosh – the perfect bite! Don’t even get me started on the boiled egg! More please!! Love this place!

  8. Adriele Park

    Everything is delicious!

  9. Laura Tams

    Friendly service, low-key atmosphere, and the food is absolutely *stunning.* Some of my favorite Ethiopian food I’ve ever had. Wonderful all around!

  10. Jorden Rosa

    Everything was delicious! I loved the hot sauce so much I bought more to take home! Cute place with quick and friendly service.

    When you walk in you become hungry for everything. My first time in and I ordered three mains with three sides because the smell was so enticing. Every single thing I tried was delicious and possibly even more the next day when I had the leftovers for lunch. I intend to try the rest of the menu as soon as I can. My only regret is not going sooner.

  12. Emily Goodin

    Excellent vegetarian options. We’ve visited twice in person and we got take-out one time (during Covid). Basically all the sides except the “cottage cheese” are veg and three entrees are veg. We have tried all the veg entrees and all the sides – everything was wonderful! Make sure you ask for the hot sauce (I didn’t think to, and the owner offered – so glad she did!) It was very flavorful, but not too spicy. TIP: After you enter, order at the counter, then take a seat. There’s seating for about 20, with two 3-person tables, an 8 person table and a 6 person table.

  13. Janine Negrin

    Great food and vibe. They have vegan and gluten free options. It was delicious and a lovely homemade tea

  14. Judith Bendersky

    The lamb dish with beets was delicious. Service was friendly and efficient. Lovely place away from the crowded downtown.
