Great food, unique experience

My wife and I love to try new restaurants and types of food, so when we were searching for something to eat one night, we decided why not Ethiopian? Warka was our first Ethiopian experience, and we would definitely go back. When we first arrived, we were a little skeptical walking up, because it... read more

Met a friend from work one night. Had a wonderful meal. I had their honey wine. It was wonderful and I am not a wine person. I did ask for a fork and one was brought to me on a plate with a napkin. I ended with their coffee ceremony....wonderful. I went back the following week to celebrate my birthday... More

Nigeria doesn't have any Ethiopian restaurants and I love their traditional dishes. The restaurant is located in a very small business strip down a side street. It's a little tricky trying to find it but it's well worth it. I ordered my favorite dishes which I always order when going to Ethiopian restaurants, vegetable combo (5) and the Kitfo (raw)... More

This was our first try of Ethiopian food. So we had a lot of questions and the server was able to help us understand the ingredients and preparation. We chose three dishes, two with chili pepper and one that was plain meat. It is served family style on a big platter with the special flat bread. To eat, just pick... More

We are here with family visiting DC. The food was excellent. We asked for mild. Tried the Ethiopian beer. The kids enjoyed eating with the bread for a whole . Then we asked for plates. The platters for two can feed 3 or 4. Honey wine or mead was different. I'd definately go again.

We have been going to Warka for years. They recently changed owners but the food is still fantastic. It's nice not to have to drive all the way to DC for good ethiopian food. We always get the mixed veggie platter with the chicken curry and sometimes the lamb. The lamb is very good and the spicy chickpeas are my... More

Even though the atmosphere is lacking, the food at Warka was excellent. I've eaten at many Ethiopian restaurants throughout the eastern US, and the food here is the best and most authentic Ethiopian food I've had in a long time. I was happy that they were playing modern Ethiopian music. I wish the seating and plates were a bit more... More

My family and I come to eat here every time we are in town. I ate at other Ethiopian restaurants and Warka is the best. The good is great and affordable.
