First time at this place and I ordered the Chefs Combo which gives a little bit of everything. Loved the food which was full of flavor and loved the atmosphere. Definitely need to try this place if you’re looking for something different.

I really have no frame of reference, but this seemed authentic to me. Even if it wasn't, the food was delicious, seemed healthy, and our "sample platter for 2," was enough to feed three, hungry, grown men. The chicken and beef dishes were great but...More

This restaurant is surrounded by awful dining options. I had high hopes when I saw the Washington Redskins helmet on counter as DC is a mecca for Ethiopian cuisine, but the level of authenticity was not there. Ingredient were fresh enough, but we were severely...More

Great food, for a vegetarian too. Well spiced and seasoned, and the injera was decent. Try the tea, which is deliciously spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom. They have worked on the ambiance - tried hard to appear 'Ethiopian' but some may find it tacky.

The owners import ingredients from Ethiopia. The owners and (largely) the staff are Ethiopian. I asked our waitress (who had a deep accent), how the food compared to what she ate at in Ethiopia? She said, "We eat this... More
