Re: “Uchenna

Kim Holdren Kowalski lists her self as currently employed by this business on her LinkedIn page, claims she's been their webmaster since 2011, yet in her glowing review, she does not disclose this.

At best it's highly questionable.

Re: “Uchenna

I love Maya, her food, and her restaurant. The CORRECT address for her website is uchenaalive.com, with 2 As. Please fix this! I've emailed you about it before.

Re: “Uchenna

The only reason this is a one star is because I can't give a zero. I don't know any thing about the food, because Maya would not serve me. I walked in, properly attired and clean, after a day of Christmas shopping. I did not know how to order, so I walked up to the register. Maya gestured to a table, so I sat down and waited. I read Maya's life story on the inside of the menu and all about food=love=family. I waited and waited. There were only two other parties in the restaurant. Maya made repeated trips to both tables, but never said a word to me. Never greeted me, didn't seat me, didn't serve me. I walked out. No love for me and I don't know what I did to deserve being treated so badly.

Re: “Uchenna

The food was terrific. Definitely put this on your "try" list. The chef, Maya, is also the owner and hostess. She cooks your food after you order it; this is not fast food by any means. Make sure you have time to spare when you visit. You'll be using injera (Ethiopian bread that's similar to a crepe in form) as your fork, scooping up bites of food from a large plate. It's messy at first but you improve by the end of your meal.

The food is flavorful and mildly spicy, although you can order it spicier. We ordered a lamb dish and a vegetarian combo to share with each other so we'd have a variety of flavors to try. It was a lot of food.

Prices were great.

Maya is very friendly and welcoming - she's very busy but will take a minute or two to chat with you and answer questions.
