I dined with a friend on a business trip and was pleasantly surprised. I had only tried Ethiopian food once. I still think the bread stuff is odd but we got a sampler dish to share and the various toppings were delicious. We couldn’t finish...More

Actually the food was pretty good here, but there were some drawbacks. It was difficult to communicate with our service person,but that was OK we managed. The turn off was a proliferation of fruit flies that buzzed our table the entire time we were there....More

We had both veg combo platter and a meat and veg combo. I honestly can't point to a single portion that wasn't tasty and enjoyable. Beware the neighborhood is underwhelming, with a pawn shop as the next door neighbor.

We were able to split the Combo #2 platter and still couldn't finish it all. The injera is light and perfect, and everything tasted authentic. Can't recommend enough. A little less pricey and crowded compared to Ethiopic on the same street.

if you've never had Etheopian food, either the vegetable or the meat combo platter would be a good way to sample the cuisine. We got the vegetable one, which consisted of 8 different varieties, all placed on top of their delicious spongy bread. They give...More

If you don't know, DC has the largest populations of Ethiopians in the US - so if you want to get true Ethiopian cuisine, this city is your best bet. Addis had solid reviews on Yelp, so we gave it a whirl. The staff was...More
