"This is an absolutely wonderful way to experience authentic African and Ethiopian food! The experience took me back to Africa and the varied dishes we experienced a few years back. Do not miss an opportunity to visit Takawal. The food is not spicy, is very tasty, and is prepared and served by some of the most hospitable people we have ever met. This is such a treat for our area and well-worth the drive."  Dan T, Skokie. From Trip Advisor

Love Tawakal!
