All main dishes are served with injera, a must-try Ethiopian fermented pancake-like flatbread that's the perfect accompaniment to Ethiopian cuisine. 

If you're unsure of what to order, there are Chef's Platters (ideal for 2 to 5) featuring a selection of Vegan/Vegetarian dishes, Meat dishes or Mixed Combo (meat and vegetarian dishes).
