“First taste of Ethiopian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I've wanted to try Ethiopian food for a long time but don't live near a city with any Ethiopian restaurants. What a treat to visit DC and have a fine meal of food that is new to me. We were pleasantly full and liked the vegeterian options.

“A frequent Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

I love the atmosphere, from the injera that is plentiful, to the great sweet wine, I love going to visit and dine here. I love the music and friendly service. We are always stuffed when we are done sharing a meal. They are great for two people. Very economic. Can't wait to go again.

“Very good food for a honest price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

I like the menu, the quality of the food, and the good attention I received. It make me feel comfortable eating without silverware.

“Authentic Ethiopian Tastes in a Charming Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

We ate here several years ago and liked the food. We returned tonight with some friends and really enjoyed the entire experience. The four of us had the Vegetarian Sampler and all of us were very pleased with the tastes, quality, service and quantity of Meskerem's food. The Tej (honey wine) was an added treat.

“Exciting food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The restaurant located in Adam's Morgan is quite a treat. Not much of an ambiance to talk about but the food was good and was a popular place in the evening. We had ordered the meal with a combination of meats and lentils serevd with Injara. The meat was nice and spicy which we loved and the Injara, nice and soft. Injara is somewhat like the Indian Dosa, a softer version. The big meal for two came on a huge plate lined with Injara and the meats on top. There were additional supplies of the Injara. interestingly, the place served Ethiopian Beer. Good food at a reasonable cost.
